Today I want to show you a very simple stitch that is perfect for beginners and great for quick projects. The trellis stitch is made up of a series of chains and single crochet stitches in the chain spaces. I’m currently using this stitch to crochet a chunky, yet light, spring scarf. Here’s how you can practice the stitch before I share the scarf pattern instructions next week!
To practice you’ll need a hook and yarn – the size and weight are not important but just make sure the hook is the right size for the yarn. In this example I’m using worsted weight yarn with a size 4.00mm hook. The foundation is worked in multiples of 4 chains plus 2. Need a crash course on chains and single crochet? Check out the links below before you get started.
Row 1: ch 18 (16 chains plus 2), sc in 6th ch from hook, [ch 5, skip 3 ch, sc in next ch] repeat to end, turn.
Fasten off and admire your stitch sample. Now you’re ready for next week’s project – Chunky Spring Scarf!
