New stitches that I learned recently.
The one that really blew my mind is the Extended single crochet stitch
"Extended single crochet stitches (exsc) are very similar to single crochet stitches, but as the name suggests, they are extended to be slightly taller."

or video by Moogly
I used this new stitch on a couple things I was working on. It looks a lot like a double crochet but a little shorter and less bulk. And less yarn!
And then low and behold just after that I found another one I had heard of, the shallow sc. I haven't tried this one yet but thinking it will work as an edging or maybe in place of a slip stitch in some patterns.
And this isn't a new stitch but I am loving these new patterns from Moogly for the entire alphabet. I used the J for a bookmark for one of my granddaughters which I forgot to take a picture of but I will be using it again.
And I absolutly love this video from TXCr1cket that shows a different way to turn at end of dc row. I have to admit at this time I haven't tried it but plan to use it on my next hexagon for the afghan which doesn't turn but you traditionally use a chain 3 at the beginning of each round.
And last but not least, finishing off for amiguruamis Quote from Little Yarn Friends, "This tutorial will be beneficial to those
who love making amigurumis and who are particular about
completing each project nicely and neatly. "
