This is one of the very first large(r) projects I ever made after I discovered how much I love working with worsted weight cotton yarn. I think I crocheted with it non-stop for MONTHS.
This is not a ‘pattern’ per se, but more of a directive. Mostly because I seriously did not write anything down as far as dimensions, amount of yarn used, etc.
What I can do though is provide some guidelines. I went scrambling through my menagerie of pattern books to find “seed stitch’. It is a really simple stitch. One of my very favorites. I like to make dishcloths with it.
So, now. On to business. Trial and error, that’s how I have made so many of my projects. With most all medium weight, worsted weight yarns I usually use a “J” hook.
Multiple of 2 chs.
Row 1: (Right side) Sc in second ch from hook, (ch 1 skip next ch, sc in next ch) across. Row 2: Ch 1, turn; sc in first sc and in next ch-1 sp, (ch 1, sc in next ch-1 sp) across to last sc, sc in last sc. Row 3: Ch 1, turn; sc in first sc, ch 1, (sc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1) across to last 2 sc, skip next sc, sc in last sc. Repeat Rows 2 and 3 for pattern.
