Tutorial Week – Granny Stripe

Well we have reached the last tutorial for the week and I believe its certainly a case of the saving the best till last.

This is my favourite stitch at the moment (and my blog background!) I spent ages trying to find out what this was as all I had was a picture and no link or pattern, so I was over the moon when I found it.

1. Work in multiples of 3 and make a chain the desired length (for example 48)                   2. SC in each stitch starting from the 2nd chain (47 stitches)                                                 3. Ch3, turn, 1dc in 2nd stitch from hook                                                                                4. *Skip 2 stitches, 3dc in next stitch* repeat across until 1 stitch from the end. In the last stitch do 2dc.                                                                                                                          5. **Ch3, turn, 3dc in the space, continue across until you get to the ch3 you started with, 1dc in the top of the ch3                                                                                                         6. Turn, 2dc in the first space, 3dc in all spaces until the end making sure you do 2dc in the last space (you should begin and end each row with a ch3 or 2dc’s, this will alternate for each row).                                                                                                                          7. Repeat from ** until you have reached the length you want

I recently used this stitch to make another cup cozy:
