Reaching Out, One Stitch At a Time

Spider Stitch

It has been so long since I’ve done my stitch-of-the-week.  I’ve been keeping up with it as far as trying a new stitch, taking pics, etc., but haven’t had time to post them.  I’ll try to be better about it now that the baby is getting a little bit older.  Here’s the newest one.  I won’t say what I’m making, but I’m creating a little something for my girls.  They all want to match for my mothers wedding in 5 weeks……No pressure!

SPIDER STITCH
The spider stitch is made with an odd number of stitches. After deciding how many stitches you will need for your project you need to add 2 extra for your foundation chain.
Row 1: (sc, ch1, sc) in 3rd ch from hook, *skip next chain, (sc, ch1, sc) in next ch, repeat from * to last 2 ch, skip next ch, sc in last ch, turn.
Row 2: ch2, skip first 2 sc, (sc, ch1, sc) in each ch1 space, sc in top of beginning ch2, turn.
Repeat Row 2.
I WANTED A FINISHED EDGE FOR MY PROJECT SO I MADE A VARIATION OF THIS. IF YOU DON’T WANT TO DO A  BORDER, TRY MY VERSION.
Instead of an odd number of stitches you will need an even number.
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each ch across.

Row 2: ch1, sc in first sc, skip next sc, *(sc, ch1, sc) in next sc, skip next sc, repeat from * across, sc in last sc, turn.

Row 3: ch1, sc in first sc, *(sc, ch1, sc) in next ch1 sp, repeat from * across, sc in last sc, turn.

Repeat Row 3 until you have reached the desired number of rows.

Finishing Row: sc in first sc, *sc in next sc, sc in next ch1 sp, skip next sc, repeat from * across, sc in last sc. Finish off. (your ending row should have the same number of sc as your beginning row.

Happy Crocheting!
