July is coming to a close! Today we will learn how to crochet the trellis stitch, the last stitch of the month!
This stitch uses post stitches and v-stitches to create a neat trellis effect! When I asked for name suggestions on Instagram, some of you said it also looked like a garden gate.
Which I actually loved! But “Garden gate stitch” just didn’t sound right. 😆So Trellis Stitch is second best!
If you haven’t joined my Stitch Along yet, it’s not too late! I’m releasing 4 stitch patterns per month, and 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.
You can also view the master list of stitches that have been released so far by clicking HERE! There are definitely some more cool ones you will want to check out.
One of the goals of the #desertblossomstitchalong has been to empower you guys to expand your crochet knowledge and take the step out into designing.
It has been AWESOME to see some of you designing patterns with these stitches! 🙂
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 Trellis Stitch, plus 3 OTHER stitch patterns (all of the ones from July, see picture below!) The stitches are written out for easy printing. Find this bundle HERE!
