This yarn lends itself beautifully to crochet as the smooth texture is a perfect format for any type of stitch. The pattern is easy to learn and the elongated stitches show the yarn off to its best advantage. Even the more complex stitches found in this pattern are simply built upon the basics, all of which you will learn about in this handy guide.
