Stitch Multiple: Odd number of stitches, plus 2

Notes:

  • This pretty and dense fabric is completely reversible. When you choose your yarn, I recommend you try using a hook 1 size larger. For this project, I used a 6 mm (J) hook. The yarn called for a 5.5 mm (I) hook. The finished fabric is somewhat stretchy.

Crochet Spider Stitch Instructions:

  1. It is important to watch your stitch placement. You need to work into the ch1sp on both sides of the fabric. If your stitches slant slightly you may end up working on the wrong side of the sc on the reverse side of the project.

  2. R1: Ch 17, (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) in the third ch from the hook. *Sk 1 ch, (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) in the next ch**. Rep from * to ** across to the last 2 chs. Sk 1 ch, 1 sc in the last ch. Ch 2, turn. [7 (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc), 1 sc]

  3. R2: *Sk 2 sc, (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) in the next ch1sp**. Rep from * to ** across. 1 sc in the first sk ch from R1. [7 (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc), 1 sc]

  4. R3: *Sk 2 sc, (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) in the next ch1sp**. Rep from * to ** across. 1 sc in the first ch of the turning ch from the previous row. [7 (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc), 1 sc]

  5. Rep R3 for the pattern.

I love learning new stitches or ways to put simple stitches together to makeup a new stitch. This Spider Stitch is one of those. The pictures are very clear and really helps with the placement of your hook. I like the swatch I made and think I'll keep going with it to make a face cloth. Thank you and please keep it coming with the new stitches.

A video would have been much better. While pictures are great, I'm not getting the cadence of the actual stitches. Not enough detail.

I love Rhonddas tutorials. She goes out of her way to illustrate her explanations with excellent close up photos. Using different colored yarn to show how specific stitches are used is just perfect for visual learners like me. This is the ideal size for working up a sample swatch, too. I love learning new stitches, and Rhonddas tutorials are the best around!
