Row 1: Chain any multiple of 3, sc in 2nd ch from hook. *(sc, ch 1, dc) in next. skip 2 chs. repeat from * across. 

For row 2 you’ll be working those same groups of (sc, ch 1, dc) but in each ch 1 space across the row. This is what makes this stitch so quick!

Row 2: Sc in same st as ch 1, skip next dc, *(sc, ch 1, dc) in ch-1 space, skip next sc and dc, repeat from * to last ch-1 space. (Sc, ch 1, dc) in last ch-1 space. Skip next dc. Sc in last. Turn.

That’s it! Just repeat row 2 until your project is the size you want. I am actually making a baby blanket with this stitch for my sister right now using some bulky yarn and it is amazing how fast its flying off my hook. 

Besides blankets, this textured crochet stitch would be great for almost any project: dishcloths, scarves, pillow covers… I am sure I could go on and on haha.

Border

*This is how I did the border on my square. You can use any stitch you like (I did a round of hdc and a round of sc) the basic pattern is still the same.

Rnd 1: Ch 1, hdc evenly around, place 3 hdc in each corner stitch. Join to top of 1st hdc with sl st.

Rnd 2: Ch 1, sc in same st as ch 1, sc evenly around placing 2 sc in each corner stitch. Join to top of 1st sc with sl st. Finish off weave in ends.

    stating row 2 am i suppose to chain on then sc crochet in chain one space i think im a little confused thanks for your help

    • Val says:

      The way I read it you chain one then single crochet in the same stitch, then skip to chain space and do a single crochet, chain 1, and double crochet in that space.
      Hope that makes sense. And hope Iā€™m correct! šŸ™‚
