Crochet How To Guide: Interlocking Block Stitch/ Plaid Stitch

Interlocking block stitch/Plaid stitch is a great stitch to use for blankets, cushions and hats/scarves – you can use as many or as few colours as you wish and come up with some really cool patterns.

I have some patterns which use this stitch including a Plaid effect hat with pom pom and Plaid effect fingerless gloves.

Interlocking block stitch/plaid stitch tutorial:

Notes:

  • Change colour on the last yo of the final stitch of the row.

Starting row:

For the first row you need to ch the length of stitches you require, and as the interlocking block/plaid stitch works in 2 blocks of 3 you need to make sure your starting ch length is dividable by 6. Once you have your ch length add on 5 extra stitches (this will create the first tr/dc stitch of the row, and a block of 3tr/dc to make sure you end the row on a set of 3tr/dc).

For example: if your starting ch was 30ch stitches long, add an extra 5 stitches to make 35ch stitches in total.

Row 1: tr/dc into the 3rd ch from the hook, this gives you the first tr/dc of the row using the extra 2ch stitches added at the start. Next tr/dc into the next 2 stitches, giving you your first block of 3. *ch3, skip 3 stitches, then tr/dc into the next 3 stitches. Repeat from *along the row.

Main Rows:

Row 2: ch1 (doesn’t count as a stitch) sc, ch3, skip 2, 3tr/dc – one into each stitch two rows below *ch3, skip 3, 3tr/dc – one into each stitch two rows below. Repeat from * along row, until 3 stitches remain (the 2tr/dc and ch3 at start of previous row), ch3, skip 2, sc into top of ch3 at start of previous row.

Row 3: ch3 (counts as a stitch) 2tr/dc – one into each stitch two rows below, ch3, skip 3, *3tr/dc – one into each stitch two rows below, ch3, skip 3. Repeat from * along row, until 3 stitches remain, 2tr/dc – one into each stitch two rows below, tr/dc into final stitch (sc from start of previous row).

  • Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you reach the size of blanket you require.
  • Fasten off, Fasten off all loose ends.

Star Wars Golf Club Covers Pattern Series: Part 1 – Yoda

Time for a Star Wars themed crochet golf club cover takeover!

The first crochet golf club cover I made a few weeks ago had a plaid effect pattern and although I want to make a few more like this with different pattern designs I decided for the next few to move away from this and I am going to make a few Star Wars themed covers.

I have a ridiculously long list of ones I want to make and have a feeling there will be many more Star Wars themed golf club covers appearing on here over the next few months.

First up is a Baby Yoda golf club cover – I opted to make this one first as it has a lot less detail than some of my other ideas making it ideal for testing out whether It would work as a golf club cover before moving on to the ones with a lot more detail.

Check out more crochet Star Wars themed makes (including light sabres and characters over here).

Baby Yoda Golf Club Cover Pattern

Finished size (approx.):

To make it a little bigger if needed use a slightly bigger crochet hook (4.5-5mm).

  • Widest point on the upper section: 12.5cm at the widest point of the head.
  • 9cm wide stretchy bit at the bottom.

Materials:

  • 4mm crochet hook.
  • Wool: 25g balls of DK in:
    • Brown.
    • Light brown.
    • Green.
    • Black.
  • Stitch markers.
  • Darning needle.

Weather Is Getting Colder, Time For Another Winter Make: Crochet Plaid/Interlocking Block Stitch Fingerless Gloves/Wrist Warmers Pattern

Following on from my crochet block stitch ear warmer and plaid effect interlocking block stitch hat I am still continuing with the winter accessory theme, I really liked how my plaid effect hat turned out with the interlocking block stitch and wanted to make some fingerless gloves/wrist warmers using the same effect.

I didn’t want to match the colour schemes on the hat and gloves completely so I opted to keep two of the colours the same and change the spearmint wool to a light beige.

The grey: DK wool, no idea where I got this one from, I normally keep them with the labels but for some reason this one seems to have lost its one!.

The light beige: DK wool, HobbyCraft Everyday DK in beige.

The blue: DK wool, Stylecraft Special DK in Aster (1003).



Crochet Plaid/Interlocking Block Stitch Gloves/Wrist Warmers Pattern:

Materials:

  • 4mm crochet hook.
  • Scissors.
  • Darning needle.
  • Wool: 3 colours. I used grey (colour 1), blue (colour 2) and light beige (colour 3).



Notes:

  • Change colour on last yo of previous stitch.



Plaid Gloves/Wrist Warmers Pattern:

4mm hook, colour 1.



Ribbed section:

ch9, sc into 2nd ch from hook, sc along rest of row.

Rows 1-33: ch1 (doesn’t count as a stitch) sc along the row in back loops only (A how to guide on ribbed stitches can be found here).

Christmas Crochet Stacked Tree Decoration Pattern

It’s the time of year when the Christmas themed makes start to take over and all other projects go on hold!

I’ve still got a few gifts I need to hurry up and finish but had some time to squeeze in a little tree decoration.

I love this stacked tree, I wasn’t too sure if the idea I had in mind would work but am really glad I stuck with it!

Pattern is free for my subscribers over on Patreon.

Time For Something Sporty: Crochet Plaid Effect Golf Club Cover – Perfect Gift Idea

Over the last few months I’ve had a couple of queries about whether I could put some golf club covers together, I half agreed at the time and said I would put them on my list of things to make but it could be a little while until they would be made!.

With Christmas approaching I realised that I could make the golf club covers as gifts that I could put together in time for Christmas. I must admit I have left it a little later than I originally planned to get them made but I think I should have just enough time to get them finished, if not I will be having a few late nights to get them completed!

I have a few different designs in mind and all of them pretty random but I think they will work out well (well, hopefully!). The fist I have got completed is a plaid effect cover with pom pom detail.

Wool used:

Colour 1 (Black): Hobbycraft Everyday DK in black.

Colour 2 (Orange): Hobbycraft Everyday DK in orange.

Colour 3 (Beige): Hobbycraft Everyday DK in Biege.

Plaid effect golf club pattern:

Materials:

  • 4mm crochet hook.
  • Wool: 50g balls in 3 different colours, I used black (colour 1), orange (colour 2) and beige (colour 3).
  • Scissors.
  • Stitch marker.
  • Darning needle.
  • Pom pom maker/2 pieces of card to make a pom pom 5.5cm in diameter. 

Finished size:

  • 9cm wide stretchy bit at the bottom
  • Widest point on the upper section – 12cm.
  • 24cm tall.

Notes:

  • Change colour on the last yo of the previous stitch.
  • When completing the plaid section and changing colours carry along the unused colour by placing along the top of the previous row and competing the stitch as normal.

The blue: DK wool, Stylecraft Special DK in Aster (1003).

  • Scissors.
  • Darning needle.
  • Wool: 3 colours. I used grey (colour 1), blue (colour 2) and spearmint (colour 3).
