Week 6 of the 2024 Sampler Blanket Crochet Along: The Little Nub Stitch!

CWT Week 4 of 2024 Sampler Blanket CAL


The Little Nubs stitch is a fun and beginner-friendly pattern that adds great texture to your crochet projects. Made with simple single crochet and extra chains, it creates adorable little bumps that give your fabric a playful look. Perfect for beginners looking to try something new!


  1. Beginner-Friendly: Despite its impressive appearance, this stitch is perfect for beginners. If you can master the single crochet, you're already halfway there!

  2. Fun and textural pattern on one side and a pretty flat pattern on the other.

  3. Fast and Easy: This stitch works up quickly, offering instant gratification and an enjoyable addition to your crochet repertoire.


For this project, we’re sticking with our go-to, Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Merino. This yarn is perfect for its lovely sheen, soft feel, and the added bonus of being machine washable—ideal for a project that's going to get a lot of love.

Color Choice: For Square Five, we're using color #106/Moonbeam. This is a soft greige color that complements the purple color palette perfecly!
