In this week’s tutorial, we learned to crochet a Solomon’s Knot as well as a Solomon’s Grid. With a little patience, and a little practice, this stitch is a breeze! It’s a beautiful stitch that can be used to create summer garments, unique borders, bags, and many more projects!

Chain in multiples of 4 + 3.

Solomon’s Knot:

Extend the loop on your hook.

Start with extending the loop about twice its height. Once you get the hang of the stitch, you can adjust this part to suit your pattern. 

Place your middle finger between the loop on your hook, and your working yarn. This is a placeholder, meant to help you create the “knot” a little more easily.

Yarn over, and slip stitch into the loop on your hook.

Slowly remove your finger from the stitch, and replace it with your hook.

Yarn over and pull up a loop.

Yarn over, and pull through both loops on your hook (single crochet).

Solomon’s Grid:

Once you have completed a Solomon’s Knot, skip 6 stitches (the knot does not count as a stitch). 

Double Crochet (DC) into the 7th stitch of the chain.  

Crochet a Solomon’s Knot, skip 3 stitches, and DC into the 4th stitch. 

Repeat the knot, skip 3, DC  until you complete the row. 

Row 2: Chain 3, turn your work around. 

*Crochet a Solomon’s Knot, skip 3, DC into the 4th stitch. 

Repeat from * until you complete the row. Crochet the last DC into the top stitch of the chain 3 from the previous row. 

Repeat row 2 until you complete your fabric. 

Finishing Row: 

There are 2 ways to complete a finishing row. 

  1. Chain 6, skip to the second DC of the row (the one after the first Solomon’s Knot), and single crochet (SC) into that stitch.

    *CH 3, SC into the next DC. Repeat from * until you complete the row. 

  1. Chain 1, turn your work around. *SC into the first two stitches. SC 2 into the Solomon’s Knot. Repeat from * until you complete the row.

Crochet addict, bibliophile, and cooking enthusiast. If I'm not sleeping, I'm probably making something while reading (because why do one thing at a time, when you can do two?)

Drawing, painting, and coloring are some of my favorite things to do, so I own a ridiculous amount of art supplies & coloring books. I also enjoy making soap, and even owned a soap shop in Albuquerque for a few years.

Other than that, I've owned a few businesses and have moved cross-country a few times. I play the flute and piccolo, and love to study languages in my free time. I'm fluent in English, Spanish and French, and I speak a little German, Italian, Mandarin, Japanese, Russian, and Korean. I'm a writer, though you wouldn't know it by the quality of my bio, but I write fiction and fantasy stories. My first novel will be completed soon, and I have a second one in the works.

Someday, I will travel the world with the person I love. We will see and experience all the magic the world has to offer together, and it will be amazing.
