Where Creativity is Just Plain Fun

Membership is Free!

I have decided to end the Paid Memberships Program and just go with the Points Program. If you are a paid member, you signed up for a lifetime membership and are no longer paying for memberships. I am not really making any money from new memberships so it does not make sense to keep that part of my business going. Instead, membership is going to be point based. I do not plan to change this again. My income will be from sales of Paper Bead Rollers, downloads for people who don't want to be a member, books I publish in the future on Amazon, templates and template bundles, ads on the site and YouTube revenue.

All downloads, that cost points, no matter what level you are at, will now cost 20,000 points each unless otherwise noted on the individual pages.

Crosshatch Stitch 1

Crosshatch Stitch 1

From the "Harmony Guide To crochet Stitches".
To see it in the book it is on page 26.

I am not affiliated in any way with this book. I just own a copy and really like it. Plus I needed to test some yarn from Caron and I decided to combine my time to design something for the site, work on this featured stitch and test the yarn all at the same time.

This pattern stitch would make a great scarf or even an afghan. You could also use this for dishcloths and in sweaters.
