Sedge Stitch Variation 2 021513


by M. J. Joachim
The sedge stitch works up quickly and easily. I’ve created two separate variation tutorials for you today. Variation 1 is listed on our website in the margin and Variation 2 is shown right here in this blog post.
Because both sedge stitch variations use the same number of foundation chains, you can easily incorporate both stitches in the same design or pattern.
Sedge Stitch Variation 2 Tutorial
Foundation:  Make a multiple of 3 chain stitches (+3 more chain stitches)
Step 1:  Make 2 double crochet in the 3rd stitch from hook
Step 2:  Make 1 single crochet + 2 double crochet in the 3rd stitch from hook
[Repeat Step 2 across row, ending with 1 single crochet in last stitch]
Step 3:  Chain 1, turn; make 2 double crochet in 1st stitch
Step 4:  Make 1 single crochet + 2 double crochet in next single crochet
[Repeat Step 4 across row, ending with 1 single crochet in last stitch]
Repeat Steps 3 & 4 for pattern.
Thank you for visiting Lots of Crochet Stitches.
I’m looking forward to seeing you again soon!
