How to Crochet the Eiffel Tower Stitch
Okay…so of all the stitches I’ve designed so far, I think this one might be my favorite. I can’t wait to show you how to crochet the Eiffel Tower Stitch today!
So this stitch has a bit of a story to it. Ironically, I designed it completely by accident. I love experimenting with new lace stitches, so that’s what I decided to do one day. I completed a swatch, and I thought it looked cool. But I had no idea what to call it.
I put a picture on my Instagram account with a Question sticker and waited. To my surprise, people started responding that it looked just like little Eiffel Towers! I was a bit confused—I hadn’t noticed that at all! But when I looked closer at my swatch, I realized they were right. It did indeed look like that! It was a good reminder that there are often more than one way to look at things. In this instance, I was so thankful that other people saw differently than I did!
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!
