What are some Unique Crochet Stitches to learn?
The question above was a question I always asked myself when I first started crocheting! I did and still to this day do end up using the simple but fun single crochet most of the time. The single crochet is still a favorite of mine for crochet patterns and can be extremely useful for beginner crocheters to master early! But once I researched all the different stitches I was amazed to find out how many unique stitches for blankets there really were!

What are the best crochet stitches to use?
Even to this day almost 5 years after starting this blog my go to stitch is the basic half double crochet stitch closely followed by the single crochet. I love basic simple stitches and design a lot of my blanket around them. I usually use a combination of these stitches in most of my designs like the Single Stitch Chevron Blanket and the Blanket Stitch Throw Blanket.
