Backwards Reverse (Tbrs)

⇐ Back to Basic Stitches



This is worked just like the Reverse Stitch, accept that the front vert. bar is used from the back side. It works to pull the foundation (or return chains) of each row completely on its side creating a tight and thick fabric. This also looks really nice used in a set of rows or more as a horizontal ribbing; see Horizontal Rib.


Instructions

To begin: Chain to desired length.

Foundation: Row one forward: Insert hook in next chain space and pull up a loop. * Insert hook into next, yarn over and pull up a loop. Repeat from * keeping all chains on hook. Row one return: Yarn over and pull back through one loop. * Yarn over and pull through two loops. Repeat from * until one loop remains on hook.

Stitch: Row two forward: * Move hook to back of work and insert hook through the two vertical bars (in front of back bar, and behind front bar) and back to the front of your work. Go around the front vertical bar (back to the reverse side). Yarn over and pull up a loop. Repeat from * to end. Row two return: Yarn over and pull back through one loop. * Yarn over and pull through two loops. Repeat from * until one loop remains on hook.

Repeat row two for pattern.
