Hi guys, I thought I would do a how to for this stitch as it is now featured in one of our squares!

Once you get the hang of it you’ll want to make it all day long; I think the texture is great for mug cosy’s!

So here we go, grab your yarn and hook and let’s make something beautiful!

Materials:

  • Any yarn and an appropriate size hook.
  • That’s it!

All crochet patterns and terms I use are in UK, but if you want them in US then check out this handy stitch converter.

Row 0: Foundation dc 19 stitches, or any odd number.

Row 1: ch 3, * tc in second to last fdc, insert hook behind tc post, yoh and pull through ( 2 loops on hook), yoh, insert hook behind tc post, yoh, pull through, (4 loops on hook), yoh, insert hook behind tc post, yoh, pull through, (6 loops on hook), insert hook into the next fdc, yoh and pull through (7 loops on hook), yoh and pull through all loops on the hook, ( 1 loop on the hook), yoh and pull through loop *. You have now done 1 equals stitch! Repeat from * until the end, in this example, 8 more times.

Row 2: ch 3, * tc in first stitch, insert hook behind tc post, yoh and pull through ( 2 loops on hook), yoh, insert hook behind tc post, yoh, pull through, (4 loops on hook), yoh, insert hook behind tc post, yoh, pull through, (6 loops on hook), insert hook into the gap between the two equals stitches below, yoh and pull through (7 loops on hook), yoh and pull through all loops on the hook, ( 1 loop on the hook), yoh and pull through loop *. Repeat from * until the end, in this example, 8 more times.

Now just repeat row 2 until desired length is reached!
