Knit-Looking Crochet Stitch
Did you know you can make a knit-looking stitch using your hook?
And it's quite easy too!
This stitch would be perfect for ribbing on sweaters, vests, hats, etc.
Ch of desired length.
Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in each ch across. (Mark this row as right side)
Row 2: ch 1, turn, insert hook in 1st st, pull up a loop, insert hook in next st, pull up a loop, you now have three loops on the hook, pull the last loop through the first two loops, you now have one loop on the hook, *insert hook in same st where the last st was made, pull up a loop, insert hook in next st, pull up a loop, you now have three loops on the hook pull the last loop through the first two loops* across, make one extra sc (just a regular one) in last st.
Row 3: ch 3, turn, working in back loop only, dc in each st across.
Repeat Rows 2-3 for the pattern.
It’s a good idea to count stitches after each row to ensure each row is of the same length.
Just keep in mind that that the stitch comes out vertically, not horizontally the way you crochet.
