Shallow stitch crochet is surprisingly simple to do, and it looks just like stockinette stitch in knitting! It creates a nice, firm fabric texture that is great for hats, hoods & wraps. The only thing that makes this different from other crochet stitches, is where you insert your hook. Instead of going under a chain as you normally would…you go through the vertical bars next to the chain!
