Week #1: Offset V Stitch
Today’s new crochet stitch is the Trinity Stitch. I love how it looks like little stars! This crochet stitch is made up of clusters of single crochets that start in the same stitch the previous stitch ended. (much like the mixed cluster stitch I used on this ear warmer).
In this sample I used a worsted weight yarn (Bernat super value) and a 6mm hook. It created a fabric that was pretty dense. Which makes it a great option for homewares and bags! If you are working with worsted weight yarn and want a looser weave for a hat, scarf or blanket I would recommend using a 6.5 or even and 8mm hook.
Sc: single crochet
Sc3tog: single crochet 3 together (see explanation below)
How to make a Sc3tog: (Insert hook into st indicated, yo (yarnover), pull up loop) repeat 2 more times in next 2 sts/chs. Yo, pull through all 4 loops on hook.
