Crochet stitches come in all shapes and sizes. Some crocheters prefer dense and structural stitches, and others love lacy and delicate designs.

The stitch basically IS the character of the thing you make, so a designer must use it wisely. It’s also very important to choose the right yarn – and by it, we mean the gauge. Today’s collection is very on-trend and brings some fresh ideas for the season.

Crochet Lace Stitches are full of blooming flowers, leaves, and open crochet stitches called openwork. These recommendations are great for lacy summer kimonos or cardigans, delicate blankets or bedspreads, or summer dresses, of course! Every crochet project comes with step-by-step instructions, and some of them even with video tutorials.

Lacy crochet stitches will work in crochet shawls as well, so try them if you’re familiar with basic techniques. Single crochet stitches, chain stitch, double crochet – that’s enough to create beautiful crochet open stitch.

Use the lace in whatever project you like, because these patterns are for stitches, not the garments themselves. Check out these free patterns under the links below. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook Fanpage and Pinterest for more creative ideas!

10. Crochet Triangles and Cones Lace Stitch

Mixed stitches are one of my favorites. They prove that you can combine different techniques into one stunning piece. If you’re a beginner, don’t start by combining bobble stitches with popcorn stitches and puff stitches. Start with something simple, such as this lacy stitch by Raffaella.
