How to Crochet the Blue Frost Stitch
Today I want to share with you a fun crochet stitch called the Blue Frost stitch! This is an amazing bobble stitch pattern combined with another stitch that actually looks like knitting. Let’s jump in and learn how to crochet the Blue Frost Stitch together!
The story behind this stitch is actually kind of ironic.
I was first experimenting with it in a sweater design. In fact, I made this a sweater with it, only to realize in the end it was too small for me. 🙁
In the end, it turned out for the best! I made the rectangular panel into a pillow, which can be found for free on the blog.
Take a look at the Knit-Look Pillow below; you can easily put the Blue Frost Stitch to good use with this pattern!
Get the FREE Pattern HERE.
Of course, I also ended up putting the stitch pattern to use by making this tutorial!
This stitch was actually apart of the Desert Blossom Stitch Along, a huge crochet-along I ran in the past. We had so much fun learning a whole host of new crochet stitch patterns!
Now, you can find all the stitches I taught in one big list HERE. You don’t want to miss learning a bunch more beautiful stitches!
As far as the Blue Frost stitch itself, I wanted this stitch to display awesome texture, along with simple stitches.
You’ll get to learn how to make puff stitches, while also learning the woven stitch, a special crochet stitch that looks like knitting!
If you prefer viewing patterns ad-free, I have a downloadable option for you! I created a bundle of 4 stitch patterns on Etsy that all use bobble & puff stitches.
You’ll get the Blue Frost stitch written out for easy printing, plus 3 OTHER stitch patterns! Grab this bundle HERE!
