interesting blanket stitch

I couldn't resist trying out this pattern

when I saw it on Flickr:


With 4mm hook and colour A in dk, ch 38

Beg row: dc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 dc ea in next 2 ch,

*3 dc in next st, 1 dc ea in next 3 st, [1 dc ea in next 3 st] tog, 1 dc ea in next 3 st*

rep * to * two more times

**3 dc in next st, 1 dc ea in next 3 st, 1 ch, turn**


Row 1: use col A and work in back loop only, skip 1st dc, 1 dc ea in next 3 st,

Rep * to * of beg row 3 times

Rep ** to ** of beg row once

Row 2: working in both loops of st, rep row 1, finish off

Row 3: work in back loop only, skip 1 dc and join col B in next dc, 4 ch, 1 ttr ea in next 2 st,

*3 ttr in next st, 1 ttr ea in next 3 st, skip 3 dc, 1 ttr ea in next 3 st*

rep * to * two more times

3 ttr in next st, 1 ttr ea in next 3 st, 1 ch, turn

Row 4: work by inserting hook to left of ea ttr catching 3 loops, 1 dc ea next 3 ttr,

*3 dc next st, 1 dc ea next 3 st, [1 dc ea in next 2 st] tog, 1 dc ea in next 3 st*

rep * to * 2 more times

3 dc next st, 1 dc ea next 3 st, 1 ch, turn

Row 5: rep row 1 in same col as previous row

Row 6: rep row 2, finish off

Rep row 3-6 in next colour

When crocheting a blanket, add 10 ch for every rep of pattern

and add one rep of *to* and **to** for every 10 ch added

(ch=chain, beg=beginning, dc=double crochet, ea=each,st=stitch, tog=together, rep=repeat, ttr=triple treble)

I've never seen this type of stitch -- it's gorgeous!

I know how to do a ripple but those in betweens are scary. LOL

Thank you for posting the pattern!

This could be on my donation list. Good way for me to practice new techniques, etc.

Hi Marny, please tell me more about your 'donation list'. It sounds interesting! C x

Thank you for this beautiful pattern.

The group is called Creative Yarn and we meet once a month in the homes of members.

There are people who knit, crochet, weave on looms - and last year our group donated over 1,200 pieces to various charities that send representatives to pick up items once a year.

Today's meeting brought in about 40 items - mostly hats/matching scarves.

I showed my three hats and a pair of booties but took them back so I can finish sewing together the booties, make two more matching pairs of booties for the other two hats. Hopefull, to make a little blanket for each - just to cover the tush of a newborn.

Marny - that's so cool. Where do you all find the time to crochet for others? C x

Is this in UK or USA terms?

July 14, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterT.Pike

Hi T.Pike. it's in UK crochet terms. C x

I have been crocheting for years. Always looking for a new stitch and/or technique. This blanket stitch is GORGEOUS and truly unique. Thank you for sharing.

It's a pleasure! Hope you crochet a lovely 'something' with it. C x

how beautiful is this stich ! I'd like to try it but I don't understand what "dc ea" means (I'm french !) Could you explain me, please ? . Thank you !

July 30, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterdenise21

Hi Denise, dc each means
"double crochet in each stitch" (English terms) and "single crochet in each stitch" (American terms).
I hope this helps. C x

Wow! I never saw this stitch before!!

But then again, I haven't lived as long as some . . . ;-)

The date shows August 1, 2013 -- when it's actually September 30, 2013.

Wow! Such a lovely pattern! I can't get past the base row, though! Could you clarify the together part of this : *3 dc in next st, 1 dc ea in next 3 st, [1 dc ea in next 3 st] tog, 1 dc ea in next 3 st*
I'm translating it into us crochet terms...perhaps that is the trouble?
Thanks for sharing this!
