I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

LTKA Square 4

Lattice and seed stitch square is an interesting square, the posibilities of making a sweater like this are great, lots of work. Seed stitch is a very pretty stitch. I had to extend myself almost 18 rows to get my gauge. I learned that I need to relax my cast on. A relaxed long tail cast on can be stretchy if you do not make it tight lol!
Thanks for stopping by and we shall see you next week!

I LOVE seedstitch. It's one of my favorites, it feels sooo good.
 
Beautiful square, love the color.
 
I've read that some people hold two needles together to make a long-tail cast-on and then remove one of the needles, thereby achieving a "loose" cast-on. Personally, I'm not fond of the method. I've found a way to use my right forefinger to space the cast-on stiches just far enough apart that when they relax they're not too tight and not too loose--usually.
