Get ready for another beautiful stitch pattern! Today we’re learning another easy crochet stitch pattern. The Silt Stitch is similar to the Soft Moss Stitch. The difference lies in the placement of the sc and dc in the subsequent rows. To crochet the Silt Stitch, the double crochets are worked in the double crochet of the previous row and the single crochets are worked into the single crochet of the previous row.
It alternates in the Soft Moss Stitch.
This great texture would be equally amazing in a dishcloth or as the main fabric of a sweater, hat or scarf. Be sure to attach hang tags to your swatches so you can remember the stitch you made later. I just purchased these larger hang tags so I can write out the pattern on the back for even easier reference. It’s a great way to remember the stitch as your collection of swatches grows. You can read everything you need to know about stitch swatching here.
- Any size hook. I used US G6/4 mm crochet hook (Did you know you can purchase my go-to hooks on Amazon?)
- A yarn weight that works with your hook size. I used worsted weight yarn.
- tapestry needle and scissors
Remember, you can make your swatch with any size hook and yarn weight. Read all about How to Swatch Here.
