The Alpine Stitch is one of my favourites, so i’m excited to use them in this crochet fingerless gloves pattern. For a stitch so pretty it’s a lot easier than it looks, just using alternating front and back post double crochet!
I think it gives a lovely soft look, and looks gorgeous in lots of different yarn types. It’s a classic go to for me. If you’ve never tried it you can find a photo tutorial here.
It’s so versatile too, i’m using it for winter accessories here but i’ve seen some beautiful blankets and pillows using this stitch. I also have a bag pattern using the alpine stitch here.
