WWKCIP Day 2018 – Stitch 53

While it was very late in the day when I learned that today (June 9, 2018) is World Wide Knit & Crochet in Public Day and while I did not have the opportunity to crochet in public, I thought that the least I could do is make something very quickly to try to honor the day.

So, I started with some Paton’s Metallic yarn that I had in the color of Blue Steel (No. 95134) and my Athena’s Elements 4.00 mm hook (g hook). This is a smaller hook than usual for this yarn, for which a 5.00 mm/H hook is recommended. This yarn is a mix of nylon (63%), acrylic (28%), and wool (9%). There is no actual metal in the yarn, but it has that metallic shine.

Chain 41

Row 1: sc in 7th ch from the hook, ch 2, skip 2 st, sc, *ch 4, skip 1 st, sc, ch 2, skip 2 st, sc, repeat from * across. End with ch 2 and dc in the last stitch. Turn

Row 2: ch 1, sc in the dc, *4 dc in the ch 2 space between 2 sc’s, sc in the ch-4 space, repeat from *, ending with sc in the 3rd ch of the turn chain of the prior row. Turn

Row 3: ch 5 (counts as dc, ch 2), sc in 1st dc of the set of 4 dc’s, ch 2, skip 2, sc in the last dc of the 4 dc set, * ch 4, skip 1 sc, c in 1st dc of the set of 4 dc’s, ch 2, skip 2, sc in the last dc of the 4 dc set, repeat from * across, end with ch 2 and dc in the last stitch. Turn.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 for as long as you want.

Because I wanted to make something very quickly, I only repeated the pattern 1 more time. Then I repeated only row 2.

Last row: ch 1, sc in each st across.

Fasten off. Weave in the ends.

Here is a photo of the final project, which is being used as a book mark.
