Almond Ridges Stitch is a beautifully textured stitch featuring delicate ridges. It looks like almonds are placed in a horizontal row, and it creates a fabric with excellent stitch definition.
If you are familiar with the slip stitch and half double crochet (hdc), you can easily master this gorgeous pattern. After the first row, all the stitches are worked in the back loop only (blo).
You can easily adapt this pattern for any project by keeping in mind that the stitch count is in multiples of 8, and it takes repeating of four rows to create a full repeat of the Almond Ridges.
