Life Class and Crochet
Dear TeresaCan you tell me which stitch is used in this pattern http://crochet-craft-santini.blogspot.com/2011/10/crochet-pink-girl-jacket-with-flowers.htmlI thought this is seed stitch but its looking a bit different
Shouldn't there be for Row 1 a sc, dc in same st, sk 1 ch, repeat?
Anna - I found that I liked working individual stitches in each chain because of the holes that occur working 2 stitches in each chain. If want to skip and you like how that looks better, work it the way that works best for you.
I have been crocheting for 60 years and have always done the seed stitch thus:chain an odd number of stitches, sc in the second chain from hook, *dc in the next chain, sc in the next chain*, repeat from *to* across chain ending with a hdc in the last chain, ch1 to turn. Sc in the first stitch, *dc in the next stitch sc in the next stitch*, repeat from *to* across row ending with a hdc in the last stitch (in other words work a dc in each sc and a sc in each dc). Repeat last row for pattern. Working a hdc in the last stitch gives your work a firmer edge. Also when you are turning your work turn the right edge away from and to the left, regardless of what stitch you are working with, this makes a neater edge.Hopefully this has helped some of you with this stitch.
