The fans and eyes crochet stitch, is a stitch combination I’m sure you’re going to love.
It’s a stitch high on my list to include in crochet designs, that’s why it’s great to have a crochet stitch tutorial for it.
The stitch is characterized by having tiny eyes, stacked on top of each other, as well as multiple fans stacked the same way.
I’ve also included a way for you to grab the printable version in a bundle, more details about that further down.
