BQUEEN COLLECTION #TOTALLYTEXTUREDTUESDAY

Hi again! Makenzie from BQueen Collection sharing another Totally Textured Tuesday stitch for our 12 week series of fantastic stitches that are great for texture. We have just two weeks left in this gig! Here’s a recap:

Week 1: Single Crochet Back Loop Only (sc BLO)

Week 2: Blanket Stitch

Week 3: Even Moss Stitch

Week 4: Mini Basket Weave

Week 5: Bar Stitch

Week 6: Even Berry Stitch

Week 7: HDC FL + BL

Week 8: DC Cluster

Week 9: Mini Bean Stitch

Week 10: Alpine Stitch

WEEK 11: Crochet WAVE STITCH

A wood-handled crochet hook sits above a bright pink/fuchsia crochet swatch with an intriguing wave-like texture on a white background.

Although it looks tricky, the wave stitch is eye-catching and not difficult. If you can slip stitch and half double crochet, you can do this stitch.. It looks technical, but we all know looks can be very, very deceiving. #amiright?

We want to see it! If you try any of the stitches with us during the series, tag us @WeCrochetOfficial and @BQueenCollection AND use #totallytexturedtuesday so we can share!

Hi! I’m Makenzie from BQueen Collection and my husband I make custom wood crochet hooks while I also dabble in pattern design. We live in eastern Colorado, enjoy fishing and the outdoors, and have three young boys who keep us very busy (plus eight chickens because we eat soooo many eggs). We’d love to connect – follow us on Instagram @bqueencollection and see what we’re up to!
