July 2004 Stitch of the Month.

July 2004 Stitch of the Month.



Yarn-One color, G size hook,

Foundation ch: multiples of 9 + 8 PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS.

This stitch would make a great afghan. Using 4 ply yarn, made a foundation
chain as wide as you want your afghan, making sure you have multiples of 9,
then add 8 more chains. Using finer yarn, you could also make a lovely
lightweight shawl, or using cotton yarn, (ch 35) and make a dishcloth. You can
even make a lap afghan for that favorite grandmother. Just crochet an edging
around it.

Keep crocheting until you have Half the length you want. If you look at the
sample you will notice that is has a scalloped edge at the ending. To make
the afghan, etc. make it half the length you want, then do the ending row,
reattach yarn on the beginning chain, and do the second half of the afghan.

Or make a panel of ch. 35, and make it half as long as you want, finish it
off, make the second half, and then using a second color, make an edging
around it. Then take the edging color, and make a second panel the same
way, and use the first color around it for an edging, then sew the two together,
keep going this way until you have the afghan and the width you want it.

You can use any size hook you want, just remember, the finer the yarn, the
smaller the hook. If you look at the stitch, you will notice that it is a different
version of the Crazy Stitch.

For the sample, I've used cotton yarn, a G hook and make a dishcloth.

Row I (right side): Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch. across, Ch 1, turn.

Row 2: Sc in first sc, sk next 2 sc, in next sc work (sc, ch 3, 3 dc); * (sk next 2
Sc, sc in next sc, ch 3) twice; sk next 2 sc, in next sc work (sc, ch 3, 3
dc); rep from * to last 3 sc; sk next 2 sc, sc in last sc. Ch 1, turn.

Row 3: Sc in first sc, in next ch-3 sp work (sc, ch 3, 3 dc); * (sc in next ch-3 sp,
ch 3) twice; in next ch-3 sp work (sc, ch 3, 3 dc); rep from * to last 2 Sc;
sk next sc, sc in last sc. Ch 1, turn.

Rep Row 3 for half the desired length you need.

Last Row: Sc in first sc; * sc in next 2 dc, 3 sc in next dc; 2 sc in next ch-3 sp; sc in next sc, (2 sc in next ch-3 sp, sc in next sc) twice; rep from * to last 3 dc;
sc in next 2 dc, 3 sc in next dc; 2 sc in next ch-3 sp; sc in last 2 sc. Fasten off.
