The Modified Silt Stitch is an easy crochet stitch with a subtle texture that is worked over a two-row repeat. I’m calling this the modified silt stitch because I added my own little twist to emphasize the texture.
Tips for crocheting the Modified Silt Stich
This crochet stitch features alternating rows of double crochet and single crochet/2 double crochet groups. Its a really lovely stitch as-is but I wanted to up the texture a little bit. I did this by working all the double crochet rows in the back loop.
I love crochet, just a simple change and you can completely change the look.
As far as projects go, the possibilities for this crochet stitch are endless. It’s perfect for a baby blanket or even a chunky throw blanket. I do think that if you worked this stitch in the round it would lose some of the texture unless you turned after each round.

Modified Silt Crochet Stitch Tutorial and Instructions
Grab your yarn and hook and let’s get started!
Row 1: Dc in the 4th ch from your hook and in each ch across. Turn.
Row 2: Ch 1, (Sc, 2dc) in same st as ch 1. Skip 2 sts. * (Sc, 2dc) in the next st, skip 2 sts. Repeat from * across. Place 1 sc in top of ch 3. Turn.
This is where I added my twist. I love the little texture of that row 2 created and wanted to bring that out.
Row 3: Ch 3, working in BLO, dc in each stitch across. Turn.
And that’s it! Just repeat rows 2 and 3 until your piece is the desired size. This is mine after 7 rows. How about that texture! Love it.
