How to Crochet
The crocheted Woven Stitch is one of my favorites to use for baby blankets and afghans since it is easy to stitch, using only chain stitch and single crochet, and it works up quickly into a nice single thickness lightweight blanket. It can be worked in one solid color, in a variegated yarn or in stripes and each combination looks great. Here's how it works: Start out with a beginning chain in multiples of 3, plus 2 extra. For the first row, skip the first 2 chains and work a single crochet into the third chain. Then chain 1, skip 1 chain, work 1 single crochet, as shown above. This is what your piece will look like after finishing the first row. Work 2 chain stitches and turn your work. This is what your piece will look like after the second row is complete. Continue as before with chain 2, turn, single crochet into first chain space. This is a side view of the sample piece showing that there is not much in the way of texture or layering with this stitch.
