You can opt for a two-color version or include the whole rainbow of colors in each repeat. It’s a very versatile stitch, and you can try it on different projects, ranging from blankets and pillows to sweaters. The best part, you can make the Long Wave crochet stitch with any weight yarn and an appropriate hook.
