Week 35 of The 50 Stitches crochet along features the Amostra stitch. This is a beautiful simple lattice lace pattern, perfect for a light and breezy spring wrap or summer clothing.

You can find the links for all the squares in the crochet along here. The free pattern is below, but if you’d like the ad free printable version, it is available either as part of my Lifetime Pattern Pass, or you can purchase it on its own for £5 from Ravelry

This pattern is written in US terms, but the UK translation is below.

UK Translation

Single crochet (sc) = Double crochet

Double crochet (dc) = Treble crochet

The Pattern

For this square you will need a 4mm hook

Start by making a foundation chain of 31

Row 1. In the 3rd chain from your hook make a sc (the turning chain counts as your first stitch).* chain 2, skip 2 stitches and make a sc in the next 2 stitches* repeat between *and* – 30 stitches

Turn

Row 2. Chain 1 and make the alternate turning chain in the first stitch. Dc in the next stitch *chain 2, skip the chain 2 in the row below, and make a dc in the next 2 stitches* repeat between *and*

Turn

Row 3. Chain 1 and sc in the first 2 stitches *chain 2, skip the chain 2 in the row below and make a sc in the next 2 stitches* repeat between *and* – 30 stitches

chain 2 and skip the chain before making your next stitch

Turn

Rows 4-15. repeat rows 2 and 3.

The Border

Use a 3.5mm hook

Sc in each stitch across the top and bottom. 

For the sides, make 3sc in the side of each dc row. Make 2sc in row 15 and 1sc in the side of all other sc rows.

You should have 30 sc down each side, plus an extra stitch in each corner for the turn. This will make your stitch count as 32 stitches across each side and 124 stitches total (remember the extra stitch corner stitch is counted in the stitch count for both sides)

You have now finished your square and join and you can tie off and weave in the ends

You can now add the interlocking border, joining this weeks square to last weeks as you join. You can see how to do this here
