This week we are learning the Woven Stitch a little differently than normal—we’re using our Bookmark pattern!  You’ll learn how to crochet this stitch along with a free pattern.

I like this stitch because it really does look woven or even knitted.  This stitch has gone by several names, like most stitches in the fiber arts world.  I’ve heard it called Waist Coat, knit stitch, and a few others I cannot remember.  As far as I know, the official name is Woven.  There are also a few other stitches that are similar in appearance that are also called Waist Coat stitch, Knit Stitch, and so on.  That is what’s so confusing about stitches, we can’t seem to agree on what they should be called!

I Want To Explain The Basics of the Stitch

To work this stitch, you will need a multiple of any even number.  To work the stitch along the foundation chain, you will place a single crochet in the 3rd chain from the hook, chain 1, skip 1 stitch, and place a single crochet in the next stitch.  You’ll do this all the way down the chain, ending with a single crochet in the last chain.

To work the second row, you will chain 1 and turn, work a single crochet into the first chain space, chain 1, work a single crochet in the next chain space; do this all the way down your row and place a single crochet in the turning chain at the end (you’ll need to skip the last single crochet to give enough space for the chain 1.

It can be a little tricky, but it works out great.

How To Create the Tassels (Figure Photos)

Cut two strands of yarn or cotton approx. 10-15cm long
Fold in half and bring your hook from the back to the front on the stitch you want
to attach your tassel to
Bring through the two strands with your hook so that it creates a loop on the other side – do not pull all of the yarn through
Pull ends of the yarn through the loop and pull tight.

All Finished!
