Offset Simple Stitch

⇐ Back to Basic Stitches
This creates a slightly offset and slanted look to the simple stitch. It is very easy to make and is done by combining what is known as a Half Double Crochet with the Simple Stitch.

Instructions
To begin: Chain any number to length desired.

Foundation: Row one forward: Insert hook into first chain space from hook. Yarn over and pull up a loop. Keeping loop on hook * insert into next, yarn over and pull up a loop. Repeat from * keeping all loops on hook. Row one return: Without turning, 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: Chain one * yarn over, insert hook from side to side under next vertical bar, yarn over and draw through the bar and one loop (so that one loop remains for that stitch). Repeat from * keeping all loops on hook. 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.
