Turtle Stitch

by M. J. Joachim




Both sides of work are shown, so you can see the ridges and dimension on one side (top photo), as well as the flat fabric on the other side (bottom photo), when using this stitch pattern.

Foundation: Make a multiple of 6 chain stitches (+1 more chain stitch)

Step 1: Make 2 double crochet in 4th chain from hook

Step 2: Make 1 single crochet in 3rd chain from hook; make 5 double crochet in 3rd chain from hook

Repeat Step 2 across row, ending with 1 single crochet in last chain

Step 3: Chain 3, turn; make 2 double crochet in front loop only of 1st single crochet

Step 4: Make 1 single crochet in front loop only of 3rd double crochet from hook

Step 5: Make 5 double crochet in front loop only of next single crochet

Repeat Steps 4 & 5 across row, ending with 1 single crochet in top of turning chain

Step 6: Repeat Steps 3 - 5, making all stitches in back loop only, instead of front loop only

Repeat Steps 3 - 6, alternating rows with front loop only and back loop only for continuous pattern

Thanks so much for visiting Lots of Crochet Stitches today!
