More Crochet Textures

I continue to be fascinated with the variety of textures that be created with crochet.

While some look similar there are subtle variations that make them unique.

This is the Crunch stitch.  It is a tight pattern that looks similar on both sides. I especially like it with the shiny yarn.

The next two are the Spider stitch. Both were made with the same hook, but because of the difference in yarn, look slightly different.

The Raised Treble Diagonal stitch.  I completed this sample with the same first row just to give it a finished look.  The back of this one is plain.


Another favorite is the Primrose stitch or maybe its the color.


The Aligned Cobble stitch has two different sides. Its been overcast here, so the photos aren’t the greatest.  The second one on the dark background is the back.


The Textured Combo stitch has an interesting texture and is the same both front and back.


So, my crochet adventure continues.

    I’ve never tried the Crunch stitch – I really like the look of that – I’ll have to give it a go as I’ve found a lovely youtube tutorial for it.
    All your samples are lovely though.

    One thing we have to be aware of is the great difference between American and British names for 5 basic crochet stitches if we’re following a printed pattern.

    ‘Craftsy’ have a good article with a comparison chart here:

      Thanks Lyn! Let us know how you like the crunch stitch. Yes, I’m aware of the differences between US and British. Most patterns differentiate what they are using. The basic stitches just have different names, it can be confusing. Thanks for the link.

      I’ve found I like following the printed versions (if they are right) sometimes it’s annoying stopping and starting the videos. Let me know what you think.

  2. Who knew there were so many different crochet stitches? Following your adventures with admiration!

    • Marilyn aka Pandagirl says:

      Thanks Cathy! I think I’ve only touched the tip. Alhtough, now that I’m getting more experience, I’m finding similar stitches have different names. I tend to stick with only a few sources for that reason

    Loving all those stitches, Marilyn. I don’t think I’ve ever noticed how many there are in crochet. Will you ever start a large project, like a shawl? I saw one the other day that had a really nice pattern, like a honeycomb pattern. It was beautiful! If you’re interested I can find it for you 🙂

    • Marilyn aka Pandagirl says:

      Thanks Leonor! I’ve started a few small projects. I don’t think I’m ready for a large project just yet. I tend to get bored quickly. 🙂

    • Leonor says:

      Glad you’re crafting, no matter what the size 😊

    I had no idea of the variety of stitches either, they are lovely, especially the textured combo.

    • Marilyn aka Pandagirl says:

      Thanks Tracey! I do liked that textured combo. I wish I were a better photographer. I don’t think many of these are given justice. But I’m having fun learning,

    Great variety Marilyn. I like the cobble stitch best of this set.

    • Marilyn aka Pandagirl says:

      Thanks Ruth! The cobble is a very sturdy yet has great texture and dimension. I think it’s probably one of the most versatile since it’s dense.

  6. zedster66 says:

    I like the cobble stitch best too, but you’ve done them all really well, Marilyn 🙂 I had a flickr contact a while ago who did lots of ‘freestyle’ crochet, and made 3D crochet, have you ever been interested in that?

    • Marilyn aka Pandagirl says:

      Thanks Zed! I’m working my way up do doing small projects and 3D work.

  7. Anne says:

    Lovely samples! Have you felted any of your crochet? I’ve had fun crocheting pencil roving and felting that.

  8. Marilyn aka Pandagirl says:

    Thanks Anne! Most of these samples are acrylic which can be felted, but I haven’t tried. I did felt a old piece of crochet a while back and it felted nicely.

    I do have pencil roving but haven’t crocheted with that yet. Good idea.

  9. More interesting stitches. Do you have a project in mind for later?

    • Marilyn aka Pandagirl says:

      Thanks Ann! As a matter of fact I’m working on a couple. 🙂
