When I was freelance designing for Caron International Yarns, I was asked to make a graduated spike stitch throw. I had seen so many of them that I really wanted to do something different; something with more symmetry.
There’s nothing wrong with the typical spike stitch throw, but I like to do something unexpected.
This is what happened with this throw. Instead of simply row after row of the graduated spikes, I turned the piece upside down and worked them on the other side as well.
What evolved from my stubbornness is so cool! I love the way this project looks. It was just a simple mirror image of the spike stitch but it works so well.
Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. You can, of course, view, print, paste to a word processor, convert to PDF, etc. on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out, if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
