I have always been fascinated with the 'knit' look - I have yet to master knitting so I have searched for a stitch that I could use to get the look I wanted in crochet.
This is a very simple pattern; however, the stitch can be difficult to master. Try to keep your stitch tension relaxed while working the increase rounds.
I love this stitch and the look it gives my projects; my desire to have a hat look 'knit' but be crochet was all the incentive I required to keep at it to make the stitch work for me.
It took a few attempts for me to get it right. Don't give up - it really is worth the effort!

I love to crochet. I have such a sense of accomplishment producing a finished product from a piece of yarn...
