How To: Crochet the Primrose Stitch

One of my most favorite things about crochet, well I have a lot of favorite things that I love about crochet, but I am obsessed with crochet texture, the amazing ability to combine basic crochet stitches to create this gorgeous texture. I could crochet gorgeous texture all day long and the challenge of combining different crochet stitches to see what it may create. When you try that amazing texture with different yarn weights, colors, even trying it with variegated yarn will change the way the crochet stitch comes out and it’s amazing!
