Globe Stitch – Let’s Learn A New Crochet Stitch!

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission. Here’s how it works.

This week I would like to show you how to make the Globe Stitch. This is the stitch I used to create my Painted Sunrise Summer Wrap.

I really love how this stitch develops over the course of the pattern repeat rows.

When I first saw it I thought it could work well as Easter Eggs!

I initially saw this stitch pattern in the Leisure Arts Publication 280 Crochet Shell Patterns by Darla Sims.

You can purchase your own copy of 280 Crochet Shell Patterns from Leisure Arts, Inc in one of 2 formats: eBook ($9.99)  andBook ($24.95)

If you read my review of this lovely publication last summer you would also know it is one of my favourite stitch pattern books – and I have many! If you would like to read my review and see another free pattern I created using the stitch you can read it here: 280 Crochet Shell Patterns
