Static Stitch Sample

This stitch is called the Static Stitch it is called this because when you use more than one color to make this stitch, it looks like a row of static. This stitch is used in 3 patterns as you will soon see. This is a stitch I developed my self with inspiration from the book "The Harmony Guide to Crochet" There is a similar stitch called the tooth stitch in there which is a bit more complicated so I decided to make the stitch easier and faster to do. This sample has 2 dcs at each end of each dc row.





To do this stitch follow these instructions.

Ch a multiple of 3 + 4 sts. In the example below, this will make a row of 4 repeats. So this is 3x4=12+4=16.

So we will start with a chain of 16 sts.
ROW 1: With first color, ch 16, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Ch 3, turn.

ROW 2: Dc in 2nd sc, *ch 2, sk 2 sts, dc in next st. Repeat from * across ending with 1 dc in each of the last 2 sc. Fasten off Color 1.

ROW 3: Tie on color 2, (Sc in the first 2 sts. Make a dc in each of the sk st in the previous row working over the 2 chs. Sc in dc, repeat from * across ending with a sc in each of the last 2 sts. Ch 3, turn.)

ROW 4: Repeat ROW 2.
ROW 5: Repeat row 3.
ROW 6: Repeat ROW 2.

Keep on going in this manner until you reach the desired number of rows. When finishing your project, add one row of sc's at the end.
