How to Crochet the Diamond Stitch

Favorite Stitches
6/20/2019

Welcome to a new blog series where I have asked makers to share their favorite stitches! I have recruited a handful of makers to work with me in the following year and am calling them my "Dream Team"! They are a unique group of talented makers who have been featured several times on the blog. This summer I have asked, THN Dream Team member, Brianna Iaropoli, to share some of her favorite stitches starting with the Diamond Stitch!
