Stitch Swatch Sampler Project: Textured Crochet Stitches

My daughter Gwennie just graduated from college, and now that she has a little more time on her hands, she wants to refresh her knitting and crochet skills.  We came up with this project to help her build her skills, and we would like to invite you to join along as we explore textured crochet stitches.  

I will be posting the instructions for each swatch on my blog, and Gwennie will be making the swatch and posting a photo on Instagram.

This is an opportunity to build your crochet skills, whether you are a relative beginner to crochet or an intermediate crocheter…and even advanced crocheters may learn a few new tricks as we progress from our first block (single crochet) to more advanced textural techniques (clusters, balls, puffs, popcorns, post stitches, and so on).  The idea is to make a 4-inch square block for each stitch, and later join them together to make a useful project.  So find some yarn, pick up your hook, and let’s get started!!
A pile of swatch ideas!
