Today we learn to crochet a lace stitch called the row of grain. It's named so because it gives the impression of an orderly grid of wheat heads ready to come to life with in a gentle breeze. We like it because it is reminiscent of Arles, in the south of France, where the melancholy Vincent van Gogh painted one of his masterpieces: View from the wheat fields. Do you want a sweater that makes you feel as though you are immersed in a picturesque landscape? Then you just have to try this amazing stitch. The yarn selected is Cleopatra in the colour Sand.

Enjoy.
