How to crochet the bud stitch

The section on knit stitches continues. Today we’re going to have fun doing the crochet Bud stitch together! This knit stitch is adorable, enhanced with plump seeds just waiting to sprout on a sweater or even a scarf.

We’ve chosen the Vintage yarn, in cotton and alpaca, with a prefaded effect for the Bud stitch. Here it’s in the colour Chocolate but you can find loads of other gorgeous colours on our shop.

Let's get started.
