Try Something New in Crochet

CrochetKim Free Crochet Pattern: Rosaline Kimono Tunic @crochetkim

I know many of you are like me: you love to try new things in crochet! Here’s a fabulous technique that I developed for one of my designs and then later went on to write an entire book on it.

This is Drop Stitch Crochet. It is a broomstick lace hybrid. Unlike other drop stitch crochet patterns, this one was a tiny bit different. I anchored each drop with a chain at the bottom so it wouldn’t slip around. I was working with a super slippery yarn with my Rosaline Kimono Tunic and the stitches moved around too much, making them difficult to manage. It was really ingenious to simply add that little chain at the bottom. It solved everything!

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 PDF's of my patterns. You can, of course, view, print ,paste to a word processor, convert to PDF's, 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!
