Crochet Silt Stitch, an easy crochet stitch

Today I am sharing how to crochet silt stitch with you. 

Silt stitch is the third crochet stitch I am sharing, with patterns combinations of double crochet and single crochet stitches, just in a different sequence.

Thicket Stitch

Silt Stitch is very similar to Lemon Peel Stitch, although it has a totally different look.

The basic difference between the two stitches are the placement of the stitches. To crochet Lemon Peel stitch, dc's are worked in the sc's and vice versa.

Silt Stitch is a more open stitch, and may not be as warm as Lemon Peel Stitch.

crochet silt stitch pattern

The pattern is in US terms.

The pattern:

Chain in multiples of 2 + 1.  In the sample, I started with 29 chains.

First row -  sc in the third ch from the hook, *dc in the next ch, sc in the next ch*. Repeat from * to *, to the last 2 ch.  Dc in the next ch and hdc in the last ch, turn.

Second row - ch2 (counts as hdc), skip the hdc from the previous row, *dc in the dc of the previous row, sc in the sc of the previous row.* Repeat from * to *, finishing each row with a hdc in the top of the turning ch, turn.

Repeat the second row until your work is the desired length.
