Stitch Height Comparison

This is just a quickie post, for those who are curious how the basic stitches compare to one another:


From left to right, we have a triple crochet, a double crochet, a half double crochet (which will be the subject of lesson 7) and a single crochet.

It’s not only the height of the stitches, but also the density that differs between each stitch, and when you’re making something on the fly, that’s important to remember. I’d be likely to make a mitten with half double crochet for the added density of the stitch, for example, and something that I’d like to have a lacy-meshy feel (an afghan, perhaps, or a light shawl) in triple crochet.

Hope that’s helpful to someone out there, and I hope you all have a great weekend!

Be happy, healthy, and safe!
