The Wrapped Columns crochet stitch is a very simple and fun crochet stitch to learn. The columns in the stitch are wrapped with yarn overs around the post of the double crochet, creating an interesting look.

This stitch is a combination of double crochet, chains and yarn overs. It creates a wonderful fabric and, as a result, works up very quickly, too!

The Wrapped Columns crochet stitch is a beginner friendly stitch that be wonderful for a fun accent to a garment, a shawl or a scarf!
