Crochet Stitches: Spotted Black Wool by we are knitters

Have you swooned over the Spotted Black yarn from We Are Knitters but wondered whether it would look good when crocheted? Have you noticed that when gorgeous new yarns come out, the knit kits come first and it can be months before you see something crocheted with it on websites or social media so you have no idea what it will look like crocheted?



































Wonder no more! In this post, you can see how the Spotted Black wool looks in a variety of basic stitches! Check out my samples of The Petite Wool below.

(This one's a bit fuzzy as I ripped back the same yarn four times for this blog post!
P.S. ripping back this yarn is a nightmare due to the loose wooly fibres so take extra care following your patterns to avoid ripping back your crochet)
