Summer is a great time to learn new stitches, especially airy, lacy stitches to wear to the beach or the pool. Today’s stitch is really easy to do and makes a light, summery fabric.

In this post we used our Pima cotton and a size 8 crochet hook.

You will need to know how to do these techniques to make this stitch:

double crochet

To start any project with this stitch we will need to make a chain with a multiple of 6 + 2. For this example I started with a foundation chain of 26 chains.

Row 1: chain 1. In the third chain from your hook *work 1 single crochet, chain 9, close the chains in a loop with a slip stitch into the single crochet.

From this point on chain 4, skip 4 stitches, and work 1 single crochet in the next stitch. Chain 9, and close the chains in a loop with a slip stitch into the single crochet*.

Repeat from * a * until there is 1 stitch left, finish the row with a single crochet.

Row 2: chain 5. Chain 2 more.

*Work 1 single crochet in the 5th chain of the loop, and then another single crochet in the 5th chain of the next loop, chain 4*.

Repeat from * to * until you reach the last loop. Finish the row with 2 chains and 1 double crochet in the turning chain of the previous row.

Row 3: chain 1, which will count as the first stitch of the row. Continue the row by chaining 2 and skipping 2 stitches. *Work 1 single crochet into the single crochet of the previous row, chain 9 and close the loop with a slip stitch the same as for row 1. In the next stitch, work 1 single crochet, chain 9, and 1 slip stitch to close the loop. Chain 4 and skip the chain space of the previous row*. Repeat from * to *, but finish the row with 2 chains (instead of 4) and one single crochet worked into the fifth chain in the turning  chain on row 2.

Row 4: chain 4. *Work 1 single crochet into the fifth chain of the first loop, chain 4 and work another single crochet in the fifth chain of the next loop*. Repeat from * to * until the last loop, and finish the row by making 1 double crochet in the last chain of the previous row.

Now just repeat rows 1 to 4 until you finish your project and share it with us on social media using the hash tag #WeAreKnitters.
