I’m excited to share with you the last stitch for February, the Rose Petal Stitch!

For the last February stitch, I really wanted to make a stitch that resembled roses, since they are such a big part of Valentines Day! 

For those who haven’t heard, this stitch is apart of the Desert Blossom Stitch Along, which is where I publish 4 new themed crochet stitches each month.
