Tight Lace Stitch Pattern with Video


Tight Lace Crochet
Stitch Pattern


This is a beautiful lace stitch pattern that any beginner to do. The pattern is very simple even though it might not look it. You won't even need the instructions after 2-3 rows.

You could easily turn this into a scarf. My swatch is 7 inches wide so that's perfect. You could turn it into just about anything.


You're alternating between doing a Shell stitch and 2 individual double crochets. You repeat that row after row.


FIXED: Regarding the Video on youtube I accidently gave the wrong chain amount. This post is correct when I say multiple of 7 + 2.

I have an almost identical pattern I used on a scarf except I used Half Triple Crochets. The larger the stitch the more open the lace pattern is. 


You need a multiple of 7 + 2 chains for this pattern.

Gauge: 3.25 (3 1/4th) stitches per inch
1.25 (1 1/4th) rows per inch

sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
ch3 = chain 3
ch = chain
ch2sp = chain 2 space
tch = turning chain
* = repeat the instructions between the astericks
PATTERN: Chain 23
Row 1: Do 1sc in the 2nd chain from the hook. Do 1sc in each chain across the row (22sc)

Row 2 ch3 (counts as 1st dc) *Skip next 2 chains, 1 Shell in next ch, Skip 2, Do 1dc in each of the next 2 stitches* repeat .

Row 3: ch3 (counts as 1st dc) , *Do 1 shell in the next ch2sp, skip 2 sts, Do 1dc in each of the next 2 stitches* repeat 1 more time then Do 1 shell in the next ch2sp, skip 2 sts, Do 1dc in the tch (3 shells made)

Alternate Seed Stitch Pattern and Video


Alternate Seed Stitch
Video of this pattern can be found here

Pattern here

This is a stitch pattern that has great texture. It's very similar to the traditional Seed Stitch. You are still doing a single crochet and a double crochet. You're just not doing them in the SAME stitch. You just alternate between the two stitches.



This pattern is great for a beginner because it's something other then just doing one stitch but also great for someone more experienced. It definitely does not bore.



I changed yarns so you can see how it looks when you do. It looks as good as the traditional seed stitch.



Beginner Skill Level
Hook Size: I
Gauge: 3 sts per inch and 3 3/4 rows per inch.
Yarn: Worsted weight Yarn

Pattern:
Chain 18
Multiple of 2+2

Row 1: go into the 2nd stitch from hook and do 1sc in it. *Do 1dc in the next stitch, do 1sc in the next stitch* Repeat from * to * ending the row with a Single Crochet

Row 2: chain 3 which is the 1st Double Crochet, *Do 1 sc in the next stitch, 1dc in the next stitch* Repeat from * to * across the row.

Row 3: *Do 1 sc in the first stitch, do 1dc in the next stitch* Repeat from * to * ending the row with a Single Crochet

Repeat rows 2 and 3

If using this pattern you can sell the items you create.

Flat Bobble Shell Crochet Pattern and Video

Flat Bobble Shell Crochet Stitch Pattern











(Written instructions, Row 3, corrected 5/27/14)

This is a beautiful crochet lace stitch pattern. It's made using a flat Bobble Shell stitch pattern. It's not a traditional bobble. This one is flat but it has great texture. I like to do patterns that are easy enough for a beginner and is something different they can try. It's also great for someone who is experienced.  


You will be alternating between doing a row of Bobble shells and a row of a group of 3 double crochets. It's that easy. 

Hook size: I
Use a multiple of 4 + 3 chains.
Swatch: 11 inches high and did 14 rows = 1 1/4 rows per inch
Chaining 23 gives you a width of 7 inches = 3 1/4 sts per in

Abbreviations
Bobble Shell = (Bobble, chain 3, Bobble) all in same stitch
YO = Yarn Over
TCH = the turning chain
Bobble (all in the same stitch): Insert hook in indicated stitch, YO pull through. YO and Pull through 2 loops. Repeat 2 more times then YO and pull through all 4 loops.

Pattern

Row 1: Do 1dc in 4th chain from the hook. Do 1dc in each of the next 2 chains, *chain 1, skip 1, 1dc in each of the next 3 chains *repeat to last chain and do 1dc in it.

NOTES: As you can see...you have groupings of 3dc's. You are doing a Bobble Shell in the center dc of each of those groupings. The exact instructions are written out. You are ending with 1dc in the TCH.

Row 2: Chain 3 (counts as first here and throughout. Skip 1st dc, Do (Bobble, ch3, Bobble) in next stitch *Skip 2dc, do Bobble shell in next dc * repeat to last 2dc and do 1dc into TCH

Several Tips for Finding Yardage on a Crochet Project


Did you know you could use Algebra to figure out yardage 
also
helps you figure out if you have enough yarn?

Don't worry if you're not a fan of it just follow what you see below. Takes only a couple minutes.

I have a lot of time on my hands so I thought I would share how I determine how much yarn I used on a project. You could also use it to see if you have enough yarn for a project. Sometimes it's not as easy as multiplying 2 numbers together. I use it primarily for blankets but you can use it for other items as well.

When I crocheted a Baby Blanket I realized that Proportions could be used  to figure out how much yarn I used. Proportions are 2 fractions with an = sign in between them. I use so many different yarns and I also do a border. I also need to know how much yarn I used for sewing it together. It can get a bit complicated and I found that proportions were a perfect choice to figure that all out....and quickly.

((I did have another explanation when I first posted this but I wanted to explain something simpler. I didn't want to overload your brain.))

FOR WORSTED WEIGHT YARN

Let say I needed to know how many inches are 196 single crochets. I used an I hook and when I use that size hook I know that 20 Single Crochets = 44 inches. I did 20sc's and measured them, that's all there is to it.

So the question is.....If 20sc equals 44 inches then how many inches are used for 196sc's?

The proportion looks like this with explanation below.
20sc  =  196sc
44in          x

The left fraction is the information that we already know which is 20sc's = 44 inches. Put one on top of the other in the fraction.

The right fraction: The 196sc needs to be across from the other SC number (196). The inches also need to be across from each other. Since we don't know how many in 196 that is "x"....the unknown #. 196 on top and "x" on the bottom.

Now set up the fraction as seen above.

Time to Cross Multiply which means diagonally. 20 times "x" = 20x    AND  44 x 196 =8,624sc
So now you have 20x = 8,624

Now the Algebra comes into use......
Now Divide 20 on both sides so "x" is alone.
You have x = 431 inches
That is our answer which is almost 36 feet/12 yards

-------------------------------------------
Measurements that I've done so far. More to come...

I Hook
20sc = 44 inches
20hdc = 67 inches
20dc = 88 inches

K Hook
20sc = 50 inches
20hdc =76 inches


Let me know if you have any questions. I'm more then happy to help. If you leave a comment it won't be seen by the public unless I approve it to be. You can leave your email address if you need me to figure something out for you. OR just email me at Heatherg23@aol.com

Puff Stitch Granny Square Pillow


Download Pattern Instructions

This is my new Crochet Puff Stitch, Granny Square, Pillow. I wanted to make into a pillow because of how soft the stitch is. All those Puff stitches create a nice cushion.

There are 2 different sides. I wanted to do something different.  I have yardage for each side because I used different weight yarn. 

15 inches is the pillow size.

Side 1: Solid Cream Color (Lionbrand Baby Soft - 1 pound)  (thin worsted weight)

All 13 Rows = 209 yards of Thin worsted yarn
**************************************************
Side 2: Solid colored - Yarn: Caron 1 pound (Deep Violet, Lilac, Cream, Sky Blue)

Yardage for Worsted Weight yarn:
Row 1 uses  7.33 feet = 2.5 yards
Row 2 uses 14.67 feet = 5 yards
Row 3 uses  18.34 feet = 6 yards
Row 4 uses 22 feet = just over 7 yards
Row 5 uses 25.67 feet = 8.5 yards
Row 6 uses 29.34 feet = just under 10 yards
Row 7 uses 33 feet = 11 yards
Row 8 uses 36.67 feet = 12.25 yards
Row 9 uses 40.34 feet = 13.5 yards

Row 10 uses 44 feet = 14.5 yards

Row 11 uses 47.67 feet = just under 16 yards

Row 12 uses 51.34 feet = just over 17 yards



If you were to do a solid colored granny square with Worsted Weight Yarn it would be 121 yards.  


Hook Size: J
14 inch pillow





Row 1: ch1 (Work 1 Puff st in ring, chain 1)8 times in the ring, Join with a slip stitch to the top of the 1st Puff Stitch. Cut yarn and finish off. (8 puff stitches)


Row 2: ch1, Do (1 Puff, ch1) x2 in the same space and in each ch1sp all the way around, join in the top of the beginning Puff stitch (16 Puff stitches)


Row 3: We start to square off the granny square

ch1, Do 1 Corner in same space, ch1. Do (1 Puff in next ch-space, ch1)x3 then *Do 1 Corner, ch1. Do (1 Puff st in the next ch1-space, ch1)x3* Repeat from * to * then join in the top of the beginning Puff st . (20 Puff stitches)


Row 4: ch1, Do 1 Puff st in same space, ch1. Do 1 Corner in next ch3-space, ch1. Do (1 Puff st in the next ch1-space, ch1)x4. *Do 1 Corner in next ch3-space, ch1. Do (1 Puff st in the next ch1-space, ch1)x4* repeat from * to * then do (1Puff st, ch1) in each ch1-space and join in the top of the Puff st. (24 Puff stitches)


Row 5: ch1, do 1 Puff in same space, ch1, 1 Puff in next ch1-space, ch1. *Do 1 Corner in next ch3-space, ch1. Do (1 Puff in next ch1-space, ch1)x5* Repeat 3 times total then do 1 Co rner in next ch3-space, ch1, do (1 Puff, ch1) in each ch1-space and join in the top of the beginning Puff st. (28 Puff stitches)

You can continue in the same manner as many rows as are needed.




If you need to change yarns every row like the other side of my pillow here is the pattern..



The beginning chain 3 counts as the first DC

Chain 6 and join with a slip stitch to form a ring



Row 1: ch1 (Work 1 Puff st in ring, chain 1)8 times in the ring, Join with a slip stitch to the top of the 1st Puff Stitch. Cut yarn and finish off. (8 puff stitches)



Row 2: Join yarn in any ch1-space and chain 1. Do (1 Puff, ch1) x2 in the same space and in each ch1sp all the way around, join in the top of the 1st Puff stitch (16 Puff stitches)


Row 3: (Starting to square it off) Join yarn in between the a group of 2 puffs. It's also below where you cut off the yarn when you ended row 2. Ch1, Do (1 Corner, ch1)in same space. Do (1Puff, ch1) in each of the next 3 ch1-spaces * Do (1 Corner, ch1)in the next ch1-space. Do (1Puff, ch1) in each of the next 3 ch1-spaces * repeat 2 times total. Then, do (1 Corner, ch1) in next chspace. Do (1Puff, ch1) in each ch1-space then join at the top of the beginning Puff st.
(20 Puff stitches)

Row 4: Join new yarn in any corner ch3-space. Ch1, Do (1 Corner, ch1) in same space *Do (1 Puff, ch1) in each ch1-space, Do (1 Corner, ch1) next ch3-space * repeat 2 more times then Do (1 Puff, ch1) in each of the next 4 ch1-spaces and join in the top of the beginning chain 3. (24 Puff stitches)

Repeat in the same manner as many rows as you need on your square


FINISHING:
One thing I want to say is that I usually make the granny squares ¼ inch less then the size of the pillow so it's taut. If you make the squares to big the pillow form may be loose inside the granny squares.

Take the first granny square and lay it across the pillow form then take safety pins and attach the corners of the granny sq. through the corners of the pillow form. 

Take the 2nd Granny square and lay it on the pillow form. Get the safety pin through the 4 corners of that square as well.

Then, I started doing a single crochet through both sides. Do a single crochet in each side. On the corners, I did 5 single crochets. Just do as many as you think needs to be done. I used an H size hook.

You can do the whip stitch with a yarn needle if you want to.

Blue Granny Square Baby Blanket




This Crochet baby blanket (or Lapghan) consists of 20 Granny Squares that are 7 3/4th inches in size. There are 6 rows in the Granny Square and 1  "border" row of Single Crochets.

This square is called a Traditional Granny Square. If you're a beginner this is a great square to make. I say that because you're not crocheting into a stitch you're crocheting into spaces.

I have the instructions written 2 ways. The first is written with repeats and the 2nd does not. It's completely written out which can make it mu

Total Size: 41inches (104.14 cm) x 32 inches (81.280 cm)
Hook Size: Granny Squares = K /10.5 / 6.50mm

YARDAGE: Yarns used (Worsted Weight) 
  • Red Heart, “Stonewashed” (Medium Shade of Blue) 126 yards
  • I Love that Yarn, “Dark Country Blue” (Darkest Shade of Blue) 425 yards
  • Caron 1 Pound, “Sky Blue” (Lightest Shade of Blue) 543 yards
The Dark Country blue used over 1 skein of yarn just because I did a row  7 made of Single Crochets, as a border. So if you want to stay under 1 skein omit this row or use a different yarn for it. I did it because I used the same yarn for Row 6 and for sewing and I wanted to be able to see a slight difference in color so the 2 wouldn't blend together. I like the effect.

For help on determining how much yarn you used a great can be found in my other blog post HERE

Abbreviations:
  • ch1sp, ch3sp = Refers to the space made by ch1's or ch3's, from a previous row

Thanks for visiting!
