I find myself using this stitch over and over. It makes a nice thick fabric that's great for pillows, dish cloths and coasters.
Even number of stitches.
Row 1: SC in 2nd ch from hook, *1 CH, skip 1 ch, 1 SC in next ch, repeat from * to end, turn
Row 2: 1 CH, skip first sc, *1 SC in 1 ch sp, 1 CH, skip 1 sc, repeat from *, ending 1 SC in 1 ch, turn
Repeat row 2.
Pattern adapted from “The Crochet Stitch Bible”, Betty Barnden, which is one of my favorite crochet stitch anthologies. No matter what I'm looking for I always seem to find something that I can use.
