This stitch is made up of a 1-row repeat.


Return Pass (RP): Yarn over and pull through one loop on your hook (the first loop on the hook). Now yarn over, pull through two loops (loops 2 and 3 on your hook). Continue to yarn over, pull through two loops until you have only one loop on your hook.

Knit Stitch (KS): Insert your hook in between both threads of the second vertical stitch from your hook. Pull up a loop.


Chain an even number of stitches.


Insert your hook into the second chain from hook. Yarn over, and pull the hook out of the stitch. You should now have two loops on your hook. 

Go to the next stitch, insert your hook into the  stitch and yarn over, then pull up a loop. You’ll now have three loops on your hook. Insert your hook into the next stitch, yarn over, and pull up a loop. You’ll now have four loops on your hook. Continue adding loops to your hook until you have cast on one loop for every stitch of your chain.

Complete a RP.

Row 1: *Knit Stitch (KS) into the second stitch from your hook. Yarn over, then KS into the next two stitches.

With your fingers, pull up the yarn over loop (from Row 1). Pull this loop across the two KS following the yarn over and completely off your hook

Repeat from * along the rest of the row.

Complete a RP at the end of every row.

And that’s it! I hope you give this stitch a try as it truly is a lovely stitch. I’m always around to help if you have any questions.

Happy crocheting!
