Now, let’s take a look at how to crochet the woven stitch. This stitch is sometimes called the linen stitch or moss, but let’s stick with woven for now!
This is a stitch for those with a lot of patience! It will take longer than a standard single crochet swatch, but it does have a nice texture and stitch definition and some variety from a standard single crochet project.
This stitch just uses the single crochet stitch and a chain, but the main change is in the placement of the stitches in the next rows.
So, let’s get started learning the woven stitch.
Techniques and Abbreviations Used:
- ch – chain
- st(s) – stitch(es)
- sl st – slip stitch
- yo – yarn over
- sc – single crochet
Woven Stitch Written Instructions:
This stitch should be worked over an even number of stitches.
Woven stitch: 1 sc, skip next st, ch 1, 1 sc into next st. Work the sc into the ch space in the row below and then skip the sc and ch 1, then work another sc into the next ch space.
Row 1: 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, *ch 1, skip 1 ch, 1 sc in next ch; repeat from * to end of row, turn.
Row 2: Ch 1, *1 sc in ch 1 space, ch 1 (skip the next st); repeat from * to end of row and work 1 sc in turning ch, turn.
Row 3: Repeat Row 2.
- Remember that you are always working the single crochet into the chain space from the row below. You are never working into a single crochet stitch.
- This would take a long time to work a full pattern like this, but it is great to use for some texture and variety for a few rows.
