The sand stitch is a great project to showcase yarn colors that are bold and scream for attention!. If you love the use of color in projects then you will definitely enjoy this fun stitch! Keep on scrolling down to find the tutorial for the Sand Stitch! 🙂
For my example sand stitch swatch I used 3 different color yarns in my tutorial and will refer to them as A, B and C. Any worsted weight yarn will work if you’d like to mimic what I am showing but if you’d like to make this with bulkier yarn that would work too! Thinking you can’t do this.. well this tutorial is a perfect project for beginners! Once you get the hang of this simple stitch your project comes together extremely quick. Promise!
Happy Crocheting Friends! 🙂
