How to Crochet the Crown Stitch

Lacy stitches are my absolute favorite. It never ceases to amaze me the endless ways to combine simple stitches to form an intricate stitch pattern! The Crown Stitch is a combo of double crochet v-stitches, single-crochet v-stitches, and other simple stitches. I promise, it’s not hard to make!

This stitch is apart of the Desert Blossom Stitch Along, which is running throughout all of 2019! We are more than halfway through the year, but you can still jump in now if you’d like to!
