I love the drapey-ness of crocheting in the back-loop only. And I could just embrace Mary Jane Hall for showing this wonderful technique in her must-have book:
My attempts at crocheting a garment have always been met with sad, sad results ---> stiff, rigid & unflexible pieces that are simply u.n.w.e.a.r.a.b.l.e.!
But this! Oh my! The pattern for these arm warmers if for a beginner (most of the patterns in this book are beginner or advanced beginner) and I could not believe how liquid feeling this became as it came off of my hook.
I used Caron Simply Soft Heather Charcoal yarn and my J hook. This stitch is dreamy to say the least, and I feel that I can finally achieve such soft results that will indeed be wearable!
