C17: Day 59 – Cat stitch

by Suw on February 28, 2017

This one slipped in just under the wire, a stylised cat stitch made of shells and long drop stitches. My little swatch is not the best execution of this stitch, but you can sort of see a cat-ish-ness shape in the purple, if you squint. (Video at the bottom.)

C17 Day 59

Today is the last day of February, so the last day of Crochet Month. It’s been a surprisingly educational month, but I’ve not only learnt a huge amount about crochet, I’ve also come to appreciate really clear, concise instructions. A lot of stitch instructions are much more confusing than they need to, especially when they are written out long-hand. I also learnt that I dislike having to rely on videos because they are time-consuming to watch and people aren’t always as careful as they ought to be with where they put their fingers! Sometimes, though, they are essential.

It’s also been very time-consuming to do all these swatches, more so than I thought it would be. I was supposed to be doing just 15 minutes a day, but often these swatches have taken me an hour or more. So next month, I’m going to be doing something that is kept strictly to 15 minutes!
