Meet the Foliage Stitch, a beautiful crochet stitch designed to look like spring leaves!
I love the lace of this stitch so much! Don’t you? I love how it resembles the green of Spring just beginning to poke its way through.
In case you haven’t noticed, nature is a HUGE inspiration for my crochet designs. There is just something super special to me about God’s creation…and I love doing my best to represent it in my work!
By the way, did you know I have a whole library of crochet stitches? There’s lots more stitches that use puff stitches, bobbles, lace and more. View the master list of over 40 unique stitches here!
