The crochet Primrose stitch has a wonderful texture. The shape of this stitch creates little clusters that resemble roses or flowers. 
This crochet stitch is actually easier than it looks, it uses only single crochet, chains and double crochet. And the interesting fact is, that the right side of the flowers is the wrong side of the double crochet stitches!

What type of yarn should you use for the crochet Primrose stitch?

The best yarn for this crochet stitch would be a natural fiber such as cotton, or bamboo, which will have great stitch definition. But also a blend with acrylic or wool, can be a good fit.
Also the yarn weight has an important role here, I would use Sport, DK or Aran weight yarns for the best stitch definition in this pattern.
