Martin Sojka ...

Have fun everybody. And we want to see the progress blogs :)

Debbie Pribele ...

I hope I got this right… double crochet in the front loop of the next stitch AND in the back stitch.

(This photo shows the top view of the stitches)

lstryban ...

Yes, looking at the stitch overhead you stitch in front loop then back loop. Resulting in two DC in each stitch.

Debbie Pribele ...

it’s a lovely row, with the “back/forth” wave in it. I like it!
Good choice, everyone (and thanks for the idea lstryban)

Andria ...

I’m done with that one and ready for the next! Waiting is tuff!

Debbie Pribele ...

re: waiting >> I KNOW !!!!!
but, not everyone is online every day (or I don’t think they are) and when we get further along, it might take more than a day to complete the row (or get to it).

and that is a BEAUTIFUL colour!!!

Well, I had some trouble with this idea, and here’s why: I’d suggest in making multiple rounds for a mandala, to not tuck in the ends of cut off yarn colors right away, but to wait until the next row above is applied. I have a habit of laying the starting string down along the tops of crochet stitches to hide it, then weaving in the new end into the upper chain above when finished. It made it HECK to find my front and back loops in a soft yarn, and I had to start over with the first row after realizing this. Anyway, here’s my current two rows.

In this photo, All my yarn ends are just left exposed on the back side, and I’ll tuck and weave later when I get new rows completed above them. Lesson learned!

Debbie Pribele ...

oh but isn’t this pretty!!!!
Thanks for sharing your story — from your lesson, we all learn

KelleyB ...


Very cool stitch! First time every doing thus and I’ve been crocheting for 40 years! Tks!!

lstryban ...

This stitch makes a very pretty hat.

Debbie Pribele ...

Have you posted a hat using this pattern? I’d love to see it.

lstryban ...

These hats were made using that stitch. The band does cover the bottom portion but I think you can see how it looks on the upper portions.

BarbS ...

Very nice. I’d never seen that stitch, either. Always good to learn something new! Thanks.

Debbie Pribele ...

nice. Thanks for posting the hat pix here
