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.

  1. There was only one note to change color on row 1 in the demo picture notes. There were no instructions to change color at any other point, so I was a little confused at where the color changes were. Thanks
