It’s week 16 of the Country Garden crochet along. This week we’re making the Arrow stitch, a beautiful 3d effect stitch that is a type of Cable. This is a great looking stitch that is well worth the effort. We will be starting this panel above the Puff Flower panel.
This pattern is written in US terms, but the UK translation are:
- ch (Chain)
- sc (single crochet) = Double crochet
- dc (double crochet) = treble crochet
If you would like to follow my colour scheme in either Paintbox Cotton Aran or Caron Simply Soft, you can find my colours here
Row 1. With Color B, join into the 2nd corner stitch on the long side above the flower puff panel.
Make a sc in the first 3 stitches. *ch1, skip the next stitch, then make a sc in the next 3 stitches* repeat between *and* your last stitch will be in the 2nd corner stitch – 87 stitches
Row 2. Turn, ch1 and make a dc turning chain in the 1st stitch. Make a dc in each stitch along the row, including in the ch1 spaces – 87 stitches
Row 3. Turn, ch1, sc in the first st. Make a tr into the unused loops in the ch1 space 2 rows below.
Sc in the next stitch, ch 1, skip the next stitch then make a sc.
Now we will make our first full Arrow Stitch (AS) – YO x2, insert your hook into the previous skipped stitch from front to back and pull up a loop. YO, pull through 2 loops, yo pull through 2 loops.
leave the last 2 loops on your hook YO x 2, insert your hook into the next skipped stitch and pull up a loop. YO and pull through 2 loops, YO pull through 2 loops, YO pull through the last 3 loops.
*Skip the next st then make a sc, ch1, skip the next stitch then make a sc. Next make an AS. Repeat from * until you have 2 stitches remaining. Make a tr in the same space as where your last AS finished sc in the last stitch.
Rows 4 – 10. Repeat rows 2 and 3
Cut off and weave in your ends
