Tunisian Arrowhead Stitch

Ok, this one is my favorite stitch now. I mean it. And sooo easy to do. What a sheltered life I've lived never giving the afghan stitches their proper due!

It's hard to see the coloring in this with my lighting, but it's a bright and pretty pink colorway (Sugar & Cream Stripes).

Here is the YouTube tutorial on how to do this stitch variation. Talk about simple! I'm just making a dishcloth right now (H hook, approx. 8in wide), but I think this would work up so pretty for a baby blanket! It has a wonderful texture, very like a waffle weave or thermal sort of stitch. Thicker yarn, larger hook...you'd get a very open and airy look.

It's so pretty. I'll do a solid color tomorrow and see which I like better :) Can't have too many dishcloths/washcloths, right??

ooh, I think it's my new favorite too! That is very pretty. I just finished a dishcloth, not tunisian stitch, but one that is really neat. I'll try and get a photo of it up soon. I can't wait to get to hobby lobby to pick up me up one of those afghan hooks.

Okay, I think you've inspired me to try this stitch! I've been in a crochet/knitting slump the past few months but this is just irresistable! I've got oodles of yarn just waiting to be plundered and brought to life!
