Stitchopedia ~ Crochet Spider Stitch

Stitchopedia ~ Crochet Spider Stitch from Jessie At Home

I love the Spider Stitch! I have been using it for years, but I only just learned the name. It creates a fabric that drapes nicely, without being open or lacey. Would you like to learn? I have made a video to teach you this simple stitch pattern, and I have also written out instructions for you, and made a chart and pattern for a little practice square. Enjoy!

Abbreviations:
ch ~ chain
sc ~ single crochet
st(s) ~ stitch(es)
sp(s) ~ space(s)

Spider Stitch:
Row 1: Ch an even number, turn, (sc, ch 1, sc) in 2nd st from hook, * skip 1 ch, (sc, ch 1, sc) in next ch, repeat from * to end of row.
Row 2: Turn, (sc, ch 1, sc) in each ch-1 sp across.
Repeat row 2 for pattern

Practice Piece:
Row 1: Ch 20 number, turn, (sc, ch 1, sc) in 2nd st from hook, * skip 1 ch, (sc, ch 1, sc) in next ch, repeat from * to end of row. ~ 10 sets of (sc, ch 1, sc)
Row 2~10: Turn, (sc, ch 1, sc) in each ch-1 sp across. ~ 10 sets of (sc, ch 1, sc)

Felted Floral Pin Cushion ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Jessie At Home

Felted Floral Pincushion
Free Crochet Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

In an attempt to stop leaving yarn needles in the arm of the couch, I decide to make some pincushions. This floral pincushion is crocheted with a feltable yarn, and then felted so it can be stuffed tight without the stuffing poking out.

New Schedule

It’s been a few months now that I have been posting with the current schedule, and I have decided it needs some tweaking. I am trying to find a way to make this blog something wonderful for you, without making myself too crazy in the process. So, here is what the current tweak is, let’s see if this one works better!

Mondays: CAL/KAL ~ more on this in a bit.

Tuesday: Switch off between a Stitchopedia post one week, and a WiP/fun post the next. I may on occasion add in additional Stitchopedia posts as well.

Wednesdays: Evening ~ Round Up. I may on occasion post something else during the day as well, if I have something to say.

First Thursday of every month: Free Knit Pattern!
Remaining Thursdays: Free Crochet Pattern!

Fridays & Saturdays: These are my days to share family/personal posts with you. I will do my best to share on at least one of these days. Friday and Saturday tend to be busier days for me personally, with family and friend time mixed in as much as I can afford, so I do not want to commit to something that may be hard for me to do.

Sundays: Sunday Night Knit and Crochet Link Blast! The link blast itself happens on Twitter and Facebook from 8 to 9 pm Eastern Time, but when it is over, I share the whole shebang in a blog post.

So, the CAL/KAL on Mondays. I am starting a Facebook group to go along with them. I am currently rounding up some admins to make sure you are not neglected. ♥ Once the current CAL wraps up, and I announce the next, I will open up the group so you all can join. The current CAL is coming to a close, and I am really excited about the next big CAL I have planned for you; however, that one will not be ready when this one is over. So, I am planning on filling in the space with a 4 to 6 week CAL/KAL. I am thinking of making one item in two versions: one in knit and one in crochet, so everyone can play along, whether they knit or crochet!

Alrighty folks, I have a lot to do to make all this happen. I hope you have been enjoying the changes around here. Thank you for bearing with me as I work through all the kinks.
