I love working with new stitches. One of my favorite things to do is look through books that feature all different kinds of crochet stitches and dream up what I can make with them!
One stitch that I have found myself loving to crochet is the Tilted Rows Stitch. This stitch consists of a 2 row repeat. It is a fairly easy stitch once you get the hang of it. Stitches that are used in this stitch are the single crochet, double crochet and the chain stitch.
I love that this stitch is airy and light. A lightweight cardigan or wrap would work up beautifully in this stitch. What would you create with the Tilted Rows stitch? Let me know in the comments! I hope you like it 🙂
How to Crochet the Tilted Rows Stitch
This stitch is worked in a multiple of 8 plus 5 chains.
The Ch.3 at the beginning of the row counts as a double crochet.
For the example below, I chained 24 and then added 5 for a total of 29 chains.
Dc in the 4th ch from the hook (first 3 chs counts as first dc), dc in the next ch.
Skip next 2 chains and dc in the next ch.
Next, ch.3 and make 3 dc around post of last dc worked.
Then, skip next 2 chains and dc in each of the next 3 chains.
Repeat (skip next 2 chs, dc in the next ch, ch.3, 3 dc around post of last dc worked, skip next 2 chs, dc in each of the next 3 chs) across the row.
Ch.3 turn, dc in each of the next 2 dc, ch.2, sc under the next ch-3 space.
Ch.2, dc in each of the next 3 dc.
Repeat (Ch.2, sc under the next ch-3 space, ch.2, dc in each of the next 3 dc) across the row. End with a dc in the top of the ch.3.
Ch.3, dc in each of the next 2 dc. Make a dc in the next sc.
Ch.3, make 3 dc around post of last dc worked. Then, dc in each of the next 3 dc.
Repeat (dc in next sc, ch.3, 3 dc around post of last dc worked, dc in each of next 3 dc) across the row.
That’s it! Continue to repeat Rows 2 and 3 respectively. Here is a pic after a few rows have been completed.
Thanks so much for following along with this stitch tutorial. I hope you make pretty things with this stitch!
