The Alpine Stitch Crochet Tutorial showcase a beautiful and textured crochet stitch.

It creates a lovely stitch pattern that’s great for so many crochet pattern projects.

One thing to note about this stitch is the fact that it has a right side and a wrong side.

I’ve also included a way for you to grab the printable version in a bundle, more details about that further down.
