The Solomons Knot crochet stitch is a stunning lacy crochet stitch. I love how different this stitch can look with different weight yarns. It can look super sleek and modern made in heavier weight yarns or delicate and traditional made in light weight yarns. Either way, it’s a beautiful stitch which is surprisingly easy to do and perfect for projects such as Market bags, Lacy scarves, lightweight cover ups, tops and homeware.
