Here's a pin for you :)

The Little Boxes stitch is a very simple stitch to learn. It has a textured front and the back is flat. Although it looks very similar to the Waffle stitch, it's worked just a little differently.


It's a combination of front and back post double crochet that creates a wonderful fabric. It also works up very quickly, too!


It's very beginner friendly and would be wonderful for a blanket, scarf or a hat!
