Crochet Spike Stitch Blog Hop

Welcome to the Third Annual Stitch & Hustle Blog Hop! This is so much fun and one of my favorite parts of hosting this blog. Once I year I get the honor of gathering some of my fellow bloggers and designers who inspire me to join together and celebrate crochet. I am so impressed every year how we can each take a single stitch and do so many different beautiful things with it showing off our vast creative talents. I am in love with everything that was created and designed for this year’s blog hop.

And a HUGE shout out of thanks to Lion Brand for supporting this project for the third year in a row and giving away such an incredible prize. Read about these fabulous designs and then enter to win ALL YOU NEED to make them from Lion Brand.


This year I selected the Spike Stitch for the themed stitch. I love how the Spiked Stitch can truly make a design different in so many ways. You can use it as an accent to bring a pop of color or you can use it as a main design feature to create a sort of mosaic look.

Our blog hop designers really showed off some major skills with these designs and imaginative ideas.

I love how this one stitch is used so many ways.


I decided to make the Gentry Cowl which is a two toned cowl that will keep you extra cozy as the weather gets cooler.

I LOVE How innovative Nicole of Naturally Nora Crochet was using the spiked stitch as a key design element of her berets.

Heidi of Hands Occupied won me over with her rainbow softies. I mean you all KNOW I am about a rainbow and these are too cute!

Jennifer of Crocheted Simplicity simply blew me away and made me want to plan my next trip to the desert or Coachella Wanderlust Backpack. I am all about this!


Phanessa of Designs By Phanessa knows how to use color and really made the spike stitch shine with her Spiked Slouchy Hat

Michelle from 2 Bossay Knits knows how to set the table right! This may be the most creative and fun way to get your table set for holidays or any time with her Company IS Coming Table Setting

Krista of Rescued Paw Designs always impresses me with her elegant home decor items and the Spike Stitch Dish Cloth is no exception.
