This crochet technique creates lacy structure with beautiful openwork, so it’s suitable for lightweight accessories and decorative blankets. It works fast and doesn’t eat up much yarn, so choose it for a quick and fun project!

Depending on the yarn weight you choose the final effect may differ, because the yarns behave differently. Keep in in mind so you can make the right choices for your particular project.
