There are some basic rules when working the apache tears stitch pattern. For one, each row is worked from the right side and moves to the left. You must ensure to leave a tail of yarn when beginning and ending the row that is about 6 inches long. Forming a slip knot on your hook before you begin the row is helpful. This may seem complicated at first, but you will definitely get the hang of it.
If you are still having trouble with the apache tears stitch, you must know that it is worked the same way as the extended single crochet but with one extra extension. The bumpy texture is created by this extra extension that gives the apache tears stitch its especial design.
Another way you could make a crochet apache tears stitch project is using extended single crochet and the slanting clusters to make that bumpy structure. Whatever method you choose and whichever of these projects you pursue, I promise you will love creating this fun apache tears stitch.
