Crochet Pattern Notes

This lattice stitch is worked in multiples of 4 plus 6. That means that your beginning chain stitch row should be divisible by 4 once you subtract 6. For instance, if I made a sample swatch, I might start with 22 stitches. 22 – 6 = 16. 16 ÷ 4 = 4.

The pattern is a repeat of row 2.

The last SC will always be worked in the previous row hole. The first SC will always be worked in the previous row first hole.

Begin

Begin with a Base Chain in the desired number of chain stitches using multiples of 4 plus 6.

Row 1

In the 6th ST from the hook, insert hook and work a SC. [CH 5, SK 3 STs, SC in the 4th CH]. Repeat across between [ ]. End with a SC in the last stitch.

Row 2

CH 5, SC in the first hole of the previous row. [CH 5, SC in the next hole]. Repeat across between [ ]. End with a SC in the last hole SP.
