Here we are again! It’s Friday!

Is it just me or did this week seam to drag a little? I think it was the weather. it is cold cold cold today. I am so ready for some good spring weather but when you live in northern Michigan you just never know when spring will actually arrive and then stay.

We have a garden every summer, so this week I’ve been doing a little garden planning. I am almost out of all the tomato sauce I canned last fall, so my main goal this summer is to double our tomato crop. We are also expanding our strawberry patch (yummmm… strawberry shortcake anyone?). Then we also plan on planting green beans, pickling cucumbers, lots of broccoli, green onions and carrots. Do you like to garden? Its probably my favorite thing to do if I’m not crocheting.

Ok, now that I’ve bored you (or just made you hungry) with my garden plans, let get on with the crochet fun stuff.

Your Friday Stitch Fix

Today’s stitch is called Offset Filet Net. It is worked entirely in double crochets and chains and in every row (except for the foundation row) you will be working in the chain spaces only! Bonus!

It’s called Offset Filet because once you get going you will see a definite lean to the stitches. This would suit a variety of different yarn weights.. although with spring on the horizon (somewhere far off because it’s still freezing at my house) I am envisioning a light and lacy scarf.

In the sample that I worked up I used a worsted weight yarn and a 5 mm hook.

Abbreviations

  • ch(s): chain(s)
  • dc: double crochet
  • sk: skip

Instructions

Ch an even number plus 3.

Row 1: Dc in 5th ch from hook (counts as 1 dc + ch 1), * ch1, sk 1 ch , dc in next, repeat from * until the end of the row, turn

Row 2: ch 4 (counts as 1 dc + ch1), sk 1 dc, *dc in ch 1 sp, ch 1, sk 1 dc repeat until the end. Place 1 dc under (not through) the 4th turning ch. Turn.

Now just repeat row 2 until your piece reaches the desired size. Easy-Peasey.

I can’t wait to see what you make with this stitch!

    This looks like a really good stitch. I made 11 scarves using the V stitch as Christmas presents last year and I think this may be what I use for next year. Very versatile and can be done whilst watching TV!

    I think the double crochet stitch is what we call a treble in the UK?

    Many thanks for the tutorial

      Your welcome Maria! I love stitches I can do while watching TV. Those are the most relaxing I think…You are definitely right about the US double being a treble in the UK. I’m sure your scarves will turn out fantastic. Happy crocheting. ☺

    I am not sure what you mean by “under, not through, the 4th turning chain” ?? Is this after you turn and chain 4? And aren’t all the dc in the ch1 spaces “under, not through”? I was doing so good and got to this part and now i am completely confused at what you mean. Please help, thanks!

      Hi Ace so sorry it took me so long to respond, some how your comment got marked as spam! You will work the last dc of the row in the space created by the 4th turning chain of the previous row. What I meant by “under, not through” is to just work the dc in the space like you did for the ones in the ch 1 spaces and not through the loops. Does that help? .
