Turkish Pines Stitch

By: Elena Kozhukhar from
Turkish Pines Stitch
Turkish Pines Stitch

"The combination of Puff Stitches, fans and intricate elements makes this pattern incredibly beautiful. 2 preparatory rows we are made in the beginning. To edge was flat and that more beautifully it turns out wavy pattern. The most difficult thing in this technique of crocheting is a cluster of 9 long hdc together (hdc9tog). When the yarn is thin, this is not a problem. In other cases you can reduce the number of hdc to 7 or even 5. Pattern suitable for working sleeveless, cardigans or gentle baby blankets. But you need to consider for its “gluttony” and prepare for a large expenditure of yarn. Crochet with fun!"

What a beautiful pattern these stitches make. I must learn how to do this. I see it is rated for the intermediately skilled so it will be the perfect stitch that will give me a little challenge. I love learning new stitches. I want to incorporate this lovely feminine look into a shawl, shrug, or wrap for myself.

Moc pekn, skoa ze u vseho nen video.

There are a lot of pictures and a video to help create this stitch. So even with the intermediate skill level, I know that I can create this stitch and do it rather well with all the aids provided in the post.

Look at all of the texture provided with the crochet stitch. The Turkish pines design could all on its own make a beautiful baby blanket without the need to add a fringe or edge.

This pattern is actually to make a baby blanket. But of course once you learn how the stitch works up, and get that PRACTICE (like I know I will need!) you can incorporate it in any way in any project you wish. Wouldn't this be lovely as a square table cover, to go over your current table cloth ? Just lay it at an angle so the points hand down the sides. I think tassels on the four corners would be cool, too.

This is just stunning! When I came across this post, I literally dropped everything else I was doing and grabbed hook and yarn. First stop was that excellent stitch chart and then on to the video of course. The instructional video is a mixture of the still photos (included in the original post) and someone filmed while working the stitch. Its not hard but it is fiddly, and be prepared to pull out Row 3 (the Long HD Puff row) until you get that tension just right.

This has got to be one of the most gorgeous patterns I have ever seen. And I have been crocheting for over 50 years. It's just such a delicate, rich pattern. The only problem I see is the amount of yarn you have to get to make anything. It's going to be expensive.

I just worked up a sample swatch, and I'm so glad I watched the video. I just paused it at each stitch, and eventually got the pattern in my head. One thing I did discover is that you want to use a small hook like she suggests. It wasn't nearly as pretty with an I hook.
