In this DROPS video we show three different ways to work Bosnian crochet aka crochet slips sts. Remember to crochet LOOSELY.
We start by crocheting a set number of ch and form a ring by working a sl st in 1st ch.
Then we crochet sl sts into the back of the ch sts on the first ch round, this creates a nice edge that doesn't roll.
After 1st round we continue working sl sts in the back loops of the sts (in green).
Then we show how to work sl sts in the front loops of the sts (in pink).
Finally we show how to work sl st through both loops (off white), when working through both loops it's not called Bosnian crochet.
When working sl st in back loops we create a horizontal stripes and when working in front loops we create a slanting texture, and when working through both loops there will be a vertical texture.
The Bosnian technique gives a dense and durable texture, which is a less elastic and since you work in the round, this technique is perfect for hats and mittens.
