I love working with new stitches. In this tutorial I am going to show you how to crochet the Tilted Rows Stitch. 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.
Tilted Rows Stitch Instructions
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.
