How to Crochet the Flurry Stitch

Today I want to share with you the 4th pattern in my 2019 Stitch Series…the Flurry Stitch!

I love this stitch because it reminds me of a flurry of winter snow and rain. Bobbles alternate with open v-stitches to create a neat effect. 

This stitch is also the last stitch for January in my Stitch-Along! It’s been a great first month. It’s so fun to see you all posting pictures of your stitches.
