    Loop Stitch

    also: loop stitch, fur stitch, crocet loop fabric
    I really like the following loopy samples. There are different techniques and they can either be crocheted or knitted. The loops can be left as loops or cut and they will not unravel as the way it is worked essentially ties off the ends.

      Many years ago I had a Crochet pattern for slippers made with the loop stitch. It was different from the one you are showing. Do you know where I can get a pattern for a slipper that is not a bootie. It looked like a fuzzy slipper

      Hello there! This post couldn’t be written much better! Looking at this article reminds me of my previous roommate! He continually kept preaching about this. I most certainly will forward this post to him. Fairly certain he’s going to have a very
      good read. Thanks for sharing!
