This technique is super helpful then you run out of yarn in the middle of a row and do not want to tie a knot in your yarn!
You can also avoid having to come back later and weave in ends in the middle of your project.
This is perfect for afghans, but I wouldn’t do it if the join might end up in the front of a sweater. It might be ok on the back of a sweater or on a hat. You have to be the judge of that because it does make a slightly bulkier spot in the yarn that might be visible with different types of yarn.
Give it a try and let me know how it works for you!
This crochet stitch might be referred to as moss stitch, or linen stitch.
Using multiple colors of yarn can really show off the way the rows interlock into the rows below, hence my calling it interlocking rows.
I have used this technique for almost every sort of project. It has a little more give than traditional crochet stitches.
It does not matter how many stitches you start with, just make your foundation using my Foundation Single Crochet technique to the length you want, and get started.
Sit down with some practice yarn or your project and watch this tutorial video and work along.
