This stitch is made up of a 2-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.

Yarn-Over Skip (YS): Yarn over and skip one vertical stitch.


Chain an odd 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. YS into the third stitch from your hook. KS into the fourth stitch. YS into the fifth stitch. Continue alternating between KS and YS until you complete the row.

Complete a RP.

Row 2: YS into the second stitch of the row. KS into the third stitch. YS into the fourth stitch. KS into the fifth. Alternate between YS and KS until you complete the row.

Complete a RP.

And that’s it! Test out the stitch and let me know what you think!

Happy Crocheting!
