The Misaligned Cobble Stitch is a slight variation of the Aligned Cobble Stitch. The only difference is the shifting of the treble and single crochet stitches to ensure they no longer align from row to row. Instead, they create a lovely textured pattern that resembles pebbles.
This is an example of how you can tweak patterns to create a new look!
- Chain (ch)
- Single Crochet (sc)
- Double Crochet (dc)
- Treble Crochet (tr)
With yarn color of choice ch 26 loosely.
Row 1 (Right side): Sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across: 25 sc. Ch 1 and turn.
Note #1: Place a stitch marker around any stitch on row 1 to mark as right side.
Row 2: Sc in first sc, *tr in next sc, sc in next sc; repeat from * across: 25 sts. Ch 1 and turn.
Row 3: Sc in each st across: 25 sc. Ch 1 and turn.
Row 4: Tr in first sc, *sc in next sc, tr in next sc; repeat from * to last st, sc in last st: 25 sts. Ch1 and turn.
Row 5: Repeat Row 3.
Repeat Rows 2-5 until piece measures approximately 7” (make sure to end on an odd number row), do not finish off.
Rnd 1: *Work 1 dc in next 25 sts across to corner. Work 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in corner st. Do not turn. Work 25 dc evenly spaced across next edge. Work 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in corner st; repeat from * once more.
Rnd 2: Repeat Rnd 1.
Finish off and weave in ends.
Helpful Tips for Misaligned Cobble Stitch Building Block:
- The Cobble Stitch is created on a wrong side row since the combination of a sc, tr pattern will pull the tr stitch and make it puff out to create the cobblestone look.
- If you prefer to have your “cobblestones” align, only repeat Rows 2 and 3 until your block measures 7”.
- You can achieve a similar look with a combination of a sc and a dc or a sc and a hdc. Don’t be afraid to experiment with other combinations to find the one that suits you best!
