Letters and Numbers - Crochet Tip 41
There are several ways to get letters and numbers on a crochet piece.
- Cross Stitch - Following a diagram to shape your number or letter
- Embroidery Stitches - The satin stitch can be used to shape a letter or number and outlined with a running stitch or back stitch.
- Crochet Chain - Crochet a length of chain. Sew the chain on to your crochet piece in the shape of the letter. For thicker letters and numbers, use a row of single crochet or the foundation crochet stitches.
