Looking for new stitches that add interest to a piece is something I spend alot of time doing (that, and browsing the incredible selection of yarn that’s available these days). I imagine most crocheters have their favorite stitch, one they find themselves using more than others. One of my all-time favorites is the granite stitch, aka seed stitch.
It’s one of the most incredibly easy stitches; sc, ch 1, sk 1 st, sc in the next stitch. On the return row, you sc in the ch-1 spaces and ch-1, sk next sc, sc in ch-1 space. It works well using solid colored yarn or variagated yarn. But the magic really happens when you use different color yarns on alternating rows.
I encourage you to learn new stitches to add to your repertoire. Use the stitches and yarn to their full potential and make the magic happen!
