Crochet Grit Stitch Tutorial – Version 1

Posted by on June 18, 2012 in Stitch Guide | 0 comments

Over the years I have found 2 different versions of the Grit Stitch. I’m calling this “Version 1” for reference.

CLICK HERE for Version 2.

The grit stitch can be worked in any 2 chs + 1 extra.

1)  sc in 3rd ch from hook, * skip next ch, 2sc in next ch, repeat from * to last 2 chs, skip next ch, sc in last ch, turn.

2)  ch1, sc in 1st sc, * skip next sc, 2sc in next sc (see fig.1), repeat from * across to last sc & turning ch, skip next sc, sc in turning ch.

Crochet Grit Stitch Tutorial (version 1)I have inserted the silver hook behind the 2 sc’s from the previous row.

You will do 2sc in the sc to the left. (the one the gold hook is pointing to)


If you’d like to practice this stitch on a dishcloth, I have a free pattern here.
