Hi folks, I’ve added a silt stitch to my list of crochet stitches this week, it’s a great pattern to use for blankets, cushion covers, cell phone, tablet cases etc.
This is a really easy quick design made up of 2 rows, I have used a few colors but it would look just as nice in 1 shade or 2, just play with your color combination until you are happy.
Silt Stitch Written Crochet Tutorial
sc. Single Crochet
dc. Double Crochet
Base of ch. Work in first stitch
I used a 4.00mm hook with a main color and 3 contrast colors of Worsted Weight #3 yarn for this sample.
Using main color make a length of ch’s in multiples of 3
Work 1dc in 4th ch from hook, 1dc in each dc to end. Fasten off. Turn.
Pattern Row 1 – Join in a contrast color, ch1, (1sc, 2dc) in base of ch1, * skip 2dc, (1sc, 2dc) in next dc, * rpt from * to * to last 2dc and ch3 to turn with, skip 2dc, 1sc in top of ch3. Fasten off. Turn.
Pattern Row 2 – Join in main color, ch3, 1dc in each dc and sc to end. Fasten off. Turn.
Rpt Pattern Rows 1 & 2 until your required length.
You can use a different contrast color on Pattern Row 1 if you would prefer.
Finishing – Weave in any loose ends of yarn and trim off. I weaved mine in as I worked along the rows.
Hope you enjoy making lots and lots of items with this lovely silt stitch.
