The Waves and Stripes crochet stitch, is a crochet stitch combination I’m sure you’re going to love.
It’s a stitch I’ve used for my The Sleeves Raglan Crochet Pattern, however crocheted in rounds instead of rows.
The stitch is characterized by the waves from the double crochet 3 together, and the stripes from the single crochet row.
I’ve also included a way for you to grab the printable version in a bundle, more details about that further down.
