I love browsing for different stitches or coming up with my own combinations and have so much fun creating designs that I hope y’all enjoy as much as I enjoy creating them. I will often find a stitch and then tweak it a bit to get the look exactly how I want it which is what I did with the stitch that I am using in my Twisted Treasures line of patterns. The boot cuffs are available as my contribution to Cre8tion Crochet but I decided to create a stitch tutorial post for the 3 rows that have places that could be tricky. For this design I used Knit Picks Mighty Stitch which is one of their new yarns. I will tell you more about that later!

This stitch pattern is based on a starting chain of multiples of 4 + 2; although for my boot cuff pattern I added some extra stitches to the end for structure. Here are the different stitches used over in this stitch tutorial: sc – single crochet, dc – double crochet, tr – treble crochet, sl st – slip stitch, ch(s) – chains, sk – skip, st(s) – stitch(es)

The first stitch is the loop stitch (lp st). This stitch makes me think faux broomstick lace.

Loop stitch: (yo, insert hk in next st and pull up a lp to dc height) 4 times, yo and pull through 8 lps on hk, yo and pull through remaining 2 loops.

The last picture shows how to insert the hook for the next 3 sts on this section of the stitch pattern. Once the 3 sc are done through the middle of the loop stitch, you get the faux broomstick look.

The next stitch is the bobble that I am using. It is a little different from how I normally see bobbles so I wanted to cover it here.

The last thing is the placement of the double crochet that surround the bobble.

With these three stitch tutorials, you should be good to go on successfully completing the Twisted Treasures boot cuffs and the future patterns coming soon in this line. Now, on to what I thought about Knit Picks Mighty Stitch. They sent me 3 skeins in wonderfully beautiful colors. If you have never checked out Knit Picks, they are one of my go to online yarn sources. Part of what I like so much about them is the color descriptions that they provide. For example, they sent me Fairy Tale, Conch and Marina. When you click on the thumbnails, you will get pop-up windows that look like this:

This yarn is incredibly soft and has a very nice sheen to it. I had a little bit of an issue with it splitting at first but once I got into the skein, I didn’t have any further problems with it splitting while I worked with it. Some of my go to soft yarns actually felt rough after using this one! It is 20% superwash wool and 80% acrylic so care is easy and it blocked beautifully. Just keep in mind that even though it is soft, with the wool, it may not be suitable for everyone, but Knit Picks has a wonderful range of all types and weights of yarn if this one doesn’t fit for your project so be sure to check them out.

I hope you found this stitch tutorial helpful and please check out the pattern that uses this stitch over on Cre8tion Crochet. Several of my testers were in raptures over the boot cuffs and told me that they can’t wait to make more of them. And if you do try or have tried Knit Picks Mighty Stitch, let me know what you think of it!

  1. It’s a bit difficult to see exactly how you did your bobble stitch…I’ve done regular bobbles, but this looks very different. Could you write out how you did this, please?
    The combination of stitches is so interesting…but I would be interested in seeing how the bobble was done.
    Thank you for any help you can give. Thank you!

      Carol, when you chain the 2, the 5 sc are worked into the first ch made. Then when you are done making the 5 sc, don’t drop the lp. Keep it on the hook and inserting the hook from back to front on the first sc, sl st to create the bobble. Does that help?
