Granule Stitch-Sara Duggan {Guest Post}

Today is a very special day. My bloggy friend Sara Duggan is guest posting. Sara will be giving us a great tutorial and here it is...Take it away Sara!

Crocheting a Business Blog Tour - August 1 - November 7, 2013


Crocheting is by far my favorite craft. Learning new 'to me' stitches is so fun so when I found this one I knew it was perfect for Jei's readers. This stitch is called the Granule stitch and is simple to learn. You will need to know how to make a chain and a single crochet. Knowing how the picot stitch works will help as well. (U.S. terms)

Granule Stitch (multiple of 4 + 2ch)

Picot sc - insert hook in next sc and pull up a loop, (YO and draw through 1 loop on hook) 3 times, YO and draw through both loops on hook Supplies: Any yarn, I used Lion Brand Cottonease with an 'I' crochet hook, stitch marker ch 22 Row 1: sc in each chain across Row 2: (Right side) ch1, sc in first sc, *work picot sc in next st, sc in next sc; repeat from * across. Mark with a stitch marker Row 3: ch1 turn, sc in first sc and in each sc across Row 4: ch1, turn; sc in first 2sc, work picot sc in next st (sc in next st, picot sc in next sc) across to last 2 stitches, sc in last 2sc Row 5: ch 1 turn; sc in first sc and in each sc across Repeat pattern rows 2 - 5 until you have about 18 rows, end off. You can fold this in half, sew it up and use it as a scrubbie. What will you use this stitch for? Leave a comment below and let me know.
