HELLO WEEK #7 OF CROCHET VINTAGE

DID you enjoy crocheting last week's SUMMER BRAMBLES crochet stitch?  

Did you have fun with Week #6 ?  I  hope you had fun playing with the stitch pattern, AS MUCH AS I DID. 

This week #7

ZIG ZAG is this week's unusual crochet stitch, straight out of my personal collection of vintage 1970's crochet stitches, and it is ever so simple and easy.  

Can you see the zig zag?  You can see the zig zag in the fabric whether it is crochet in one (1) colour or two (2) colours, and I am sure it would look fantastic in a multitude of colours.

I will show you how to crochet a swatch with the basic stitches and ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS REMEMBER to have some fun whilst crocheting this stitch.
 
I suggest you start with one (1) colour and then have a play with some colour changing, every row if you wish, and watch how the stitches stand out and create a lovely pattern.  I LOVE this ZIG ZAG stitch! I am sure it can be used anywhere, however, I think it would look BEAUTIFUL in a summer cardigan or vest. And I am sure you can think of numerous other ways to use this lovely stitch.

You will be amazed how easy it is to master this ZIG ZAG crochet stitch, it is really simple, quick and quite meditative.

REMEMBER you are the creator use whatever yarn or thread you have, and enjoy the process.

Are you ready to join me?  Let's play and have some Crochet Vintage fun!
