I have found that the best way to learn new stitches is to practice them repetitively...and what is more repetitive than a scarf?! Thus my acrobatic stitch scarf was born.
The piece turned out nice and airy, a perfect early spring sort of scarf. The stitch itself wasn't too difficult to do. It has a delicate look to it, so I wouldn't recommend using a hook size over 5mm if you want your item to be lacy.
I followed this stitch using a stitch dictionary, but if you do a Google search there are several free examples and tutorials that come up right away. My scarf required some light blocking. I highly recommend this stitch if you want a fast project because it grows quickly. If you can chain, double crochet, and triple crochet, you can do this stitch. Give it a try!
