OCEAN WAVES by Diana Troldahl A Free Crochet Pattern for Knit a Square

 

 

 

 

 

The beautiful yarn Kirsty Clarke donated for this block is called "Oceanic"

This wavy shell stitch reminded me of the oceans our blocks travel to get to their destination. The deep waters separate our continents, but also connect us across the world.

 

This is a fairly standard shell stitch pattern I adapted from one of the Harmony guides to make an eight-inch block. The slight wave at the top will disappear when it is joined to the other blocks using the final single-crochet row.

 

Yarn: 1 ounce/29 grams (about 61 yards/56 meters) Wharfedale Woolworks Dales Aran weight in 'Oceanic' colourway. generously donated by Kirsty Clarke of www.wharfedalewoolworks.folksy.com and www.woolworks.coriandr.com

Crochet Hook: US size 'J' (6 mm) or hook needed to obtain a nice fabric with your yarn. Information on using different weights of yarn is included in the directions.

 

Stitches used: chain, single crochet, double crochet. See abbreviations page 2.

Directions:

ch 26. Measure your chain. It should be 1 chain more than 8 inches. If it isn't, or if you are using a smaller or larger gauge yarn than Aran weight, change your hook size up or down and/or add or subtract repetitions of 6 stitches from the foundation chain of 26 until you get 1 stitch more than 8 inches.

 

Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, turn. (25 sc in my block)

 

Row 2: ch 1, work 1 sc in 1st sc, *sk 2 sc, 1 dc into next sc, ch 1. Into same sc space as last dc work {1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc}. sk 2 sc, 1 sc into next sc, repeat from * to end, turn.

 

Row 3: ch 4 (counts as 1 dc, ch 1). 1 dc into 1st sc, sk`1 dc, 1 sc into next dc *1 dc into next sc, ch 1. Into same st as last dc work {1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc} sk 1 dc, 1 sc into next dc, repeat from * to last sc. Into last sc work {1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc} turn.

 

Row 4: ch 1, 1 sc ino first dc, * 1 dc into next sc, ch 1, into same st as last dc work (1 dc, ch 1 dc), sk 1 dc, 1 sc into next dc; repeat from * to end, placing last sc in 3rd ch of the 4-ch stitch created at the beginning of the previous row, turn.

 

Work rows 3 and 4 a total of 6 times. If you are using a different weight of yarn/crochet hook, measure the depth of your first sc row.

 

Work rows 3 and 4 until your block measures 8 inches MINUS the depth of your first sc row, then work the final row, below. If it is a little off, blocking will fix it.

 

Final row: ch 1, sc in each st across.

 

block to 8 inches square.
