About the Inspiration for the Sedge Stitch Square Pattern
The Sedge Stitch is one of my favorite stitches because it is so easy to make. And it has great texture.
So, it seemed like a perfect stitch to contribute to the 2022 Stitch Sampler Poncho Crochet Along. This event is running from July 4 through August 29, 2022. You can get more details on the Crochet Along below!
One you get the Sedge Stitch down, I hope you’ll love it as much as I do. It’s a great way to use some simple stitches to create a beautiful effect.
About the Yarn
The sample Sedge Stitch Square is made with WeCrochet/KnitPicks Brava Worsted in Hunter. Brava is one of my go-to worsted weight acrylic yarns.
Some of the things I love about Brava include that it is super soft – no scratchy acrylic here! And it comes in generous skeins.
It’s also super easy to crochet. The yarn does not split. And as a bonus it’s machine washable. So it’s a perfect choice for projects like blankets and clothing that will get a fair amount of wear.
With more than forty different colors, it’s also a versatile choice for lots of projects.
