Hi everyone! Here with the next episode of my new series, Stitch Dictionary – the place where you can find tons of new, unique stitches to try!
For each of these stitch swatches, I’ll be working up an 11 x 11″ swatch in Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick in varying colors, eventually joining my swatches together to form a Stitch Dictionary Throw blanket!
Follow along and make your swatches with me.Today’s episode is the Block Stitch, a versatile stitch best used with several different colors. It works up fast and is easy to learn.
Watch the video to see how I make it, or just follow the written instructions below!
With main color, Ch a multiple of 3 +3
Row 1: Dc in 4th st from hook and across, color change to contrasting color, Ch 1, turn
Row 2: Sc in 1st, Ch 2, sk 2, repeat across, color change to main color, Ch 3, turn
Row 3: Dc in 1st, 2 Dc in Ch space (not in the Ch sts), repeat across, color change to contrasting color, Ch 1, turn
Repeat Rows 2 & 3 alternating until desired length.
