I have heard that people don’t want to try Solomon’s/Lover’s Knot because of the simple reason that they are scared that they wont be able to keep their stitches even.  Well I’m here to tell you that you can do it!  Do you remember when you first started crocheting?  How much work you would have to put into those stitches to get them to look right?  (I sure do) Think of how much your stitching has improved since those first stitches.  They improved because you didn’t let that first try be your last!  It is the same story with all new stitches we try.  The first few times they may not look quite right, but we keep trying and in a short while the stitches are much improved!

The key to keeping your stitches even is simple:
take your time; keeping the tension the same as you work each stitch around your thumb.

Yes this beautiful stitch is really that simple.  And after a bit of practice you will be breezing through this stitch in no time

So now that you know all the tips for this stitch its time for you to try it out yourself! Solomon’s/Lover’s Knot Tutorial available HERE

Now that you have that stitch down, here are several beautiful patterns for you to practice with!  Some are more simple while others have a bit more detail and construction.
