Welcome to the New Year, New Technique CAL! For this event we will be exploring new crochet techniques each week, with free patterns to practice on. Learn more in the main CAL post, and join in the fun on the CAL Central Crochet Facebook group!
This week’s technique is Solomon’s knots, otherwise known as lover’s knots. Learn this open and lacy stitch with this Solomon’s Knot Tutorial. It’s much easier than it looks – if you can chain and single crochet, you can do it!
Once you’ve learned the basics, try it out on Blueberry Hill. This simple, rectangular shawl is a great pattern for practicing the basic Solomon’s Knot stitch.
Ready for something more challenging? Give Twilight Reverie a try! This capelet uses the same, basic, Solomon’s knot stitch, but with added shaping.
I hope you enjoy learning this stitch! Be sure to check out some of the other patterns in the CAL this week as well.
