Stacked Puff Stitch
The tutorial for today is from me, Sweet Potato 3. I chose to feature the Stacked Puff Stitch because I love the unform look of the straight lines but the playfulness of the puff stitches. I have used this in a couple different blanket designs, each are linked in my stitch tutorial.

Star Crochet Stitch Tutorial
I have to admit that I adore the look of the star stitch! It is so fun and playful. I also love that once you crochet a few it is actually so much easier than it looks. However, I do not have this stitch in any of my designs because making a tutorial has always scared me off-LOL!
Thankfully, Salty Pearl Cochet put this tutorial together and I love it! Now I can use the stitch and link back to her, seriously, go check it out!
Shell Trellis Crochet Tutorial
As much as I like full stitches that create a rich texture, there is something elegant about open stitchwork. This shell trellis has an eye appeal that is cute and elegant all at the same time. I am sure this drape would be lovely in summer and spring crochet projects too.

Bobble Crochet Stitch
If you are wanting a crochet stitch that “pops” and really stands out the bobble may be just what you need. This is a classic technique that is relatively common in many patterns. So, if you are not familiar with it, you must check this out and bookmark it as a great reference.
Remington Lane has put together a photo and video tutorial to help you understand it completely.

Mixed Cluster Stitch
I love finding crochet stitches that lay nice but have a subtle texture in them. the Mixed Cluster is just that. The look is nice and tidy but not boring at all. I can see this used in so many different types of projects like blankets, garments, home decor and so much more.
