Stitches and Abbreviations:
Ch – Chain
Hdc – Half double crochet
Knit Stitch (ks) – Also called the “waistcoat stitch,” the knit stitch is a single crochet worked through the middle of the single crochet or knit stitch of the previous round. Because you are working your stitch through the middle of the stitch in the previous round and pulling your loop up through the center, a knit look is created.
Knit Stitch 2 together (ks2tog) – Work the ks2tog as you would the sc2tog, but working through the space in the stitch of the previous round that you would typically work a knit stitch.
Rpt – Repeat
Sc – Single Crochet
Sk - Skip
Sl st – Slip stitch

Pattern Notes:

  • Pattern is written in American English terms.
  • Ch 1 at beg of rnd does not count as sc or hdc.
  • Weave in ends as needed.
  • I find the knit stitch works best when your tension is kept quite loose. Loose stitches allow for you to insert the hook in the proper space more easily.
  • To work in the 3rd loop: In the hdc stitch, the “third loop” is found at the back of the stitch, below the top two loops that you would normally complete your stitch in. When you crochet in this back loop, it should push the top of the stitch from the previous round to the front of your work creating a sideways “knit” look.
