Granny stripe is one of my favorite stitches!
The Granny Stripe stitch is same as the granny square, that it is comprised of three double crochet clusters but are arranged in a line instead of in a square. This is a very versatile stitch and super easy and fast. Ideal for projects such as blankets, dishcloths, wraps, shawls, cushions, placemats, just to name a few.
Yarn – for a blanket, you want to use a yarn that is soft, not too thin. Select one with some weight, but not too heavy.
Hooks - Crochet hook size 7 or 8
By the way, did you know this 12Pcs Set is on sale for $6.97 (for a limited time!)
