The crochet primrose stitch is a relatively easy stitch to learn and perfect for beginners! It creates an interesting shell look and makes any project a little more appealing to the eye. It looks great in most any crochet project and looks even more amazing when used to make a blanket! Read on down to find the full, FREE tutorial with pictures!
I decided to do my tutorial with worsted weight yarn from Hobby Lobby and a size J crochet hook.
You can easily use any yarn weight and the corresponding hook size for the same results.
