Skill and abbreviations
(American crochet terms)
You will need to know how to make
-sc which mean single crochet
-dc which mean double crochet
Let’s get into it!
The chain will be multiple of 3+2 for the foundation.
In this small sample I start with chain 27+2.
After you got the foundation chain then make sc in each chain across, turn and start row1 of granny stitch.
Row1: ch2, then make 1dc in the same stitch * skip 2 stitches, then work 3dc in next stitch* repeat * to * across until end of the row until you will have 3 stitch remain, skip 2 st, 2dc in the last stitch, ch2 turn.
Row2. now you will work 3dc in each space ( between double crochet group ) across until end of the row, then dc in the last stitch, turn.
Repeat row 1 and 2 until you get the your desired length.
That’s all. Hope you enjoy this piece of cake granny stitch tutorial.
