...or what the heck was I so scared of?
But I say that after every new crochet trick I learn, ha! Cheesy
It's a bit fiddly but it makes a very nice edge.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

I have a love/hate relationship with this stitch. Looks like you've mastered it!

It's a weird one because it's backwards but after a few stitches I got comfy with the way to hold it best to make it work and it was a breeze. Really, not a bad one at all. It's firm but stretchy and makes for a nice finished looking edge. I wouldn't use it for everything but it was perfect for the flower hats I made the girls.
I'm just happy I finally tried it. Sometimes it takes me forever to tackle a new thing and then I'm like 'what, I love this! Why did I wait so long!' Cheesy.
