I’m so excited to introduce to the Desert Blossom Stitch Along the FIRST stitch using colorwork! Come join me to learn how to crochet the Peaches and Cream stitch!
For me, sometimes designs happen so randomly. I sat down here just now and attempted to write about my inspiration for the Peaches and Cream Stitch.
Haha! The key word is attempted. This stitch came about so randomly—there wasn’t really any inspiration! I just started experimenting with post stitches, and eventually this is what I got. 🙂
This stitch is actually the 23rd I’ve released so far this year. I’m doing a Stitch Along, where I share 4 new stitches per month all throughout 2019!
If you haven’t joined my Stitch Along yet, it’s not too late! The great thing about this is that you can jump in at any time. Be sure to join the Stitch Along community in my Facebook group HERE. Or follow me on Instagram to see new stitches there.

Last thing before we get started on this stitch: I created a bundle of 4 stitch patterns on Etsy which can be found here. Included is the Peaches and Cream Stitch, plus 3 OTHER lace stitch patterns (all of the ones that will be released in June!) The stitches are written out for easy printing. Find this bundle HERE!
