How to Crochet a Raised Ridge Chevron Part 4/5
Garb in your material your now going to turn it around and because we are double crocheting we are going to be chaining up three. So one two and three, we now we are create the ridge. Okay, we’re going to be creating this ridge every line we go. And what we have is that we have what is called loops. And you see when we crochet we go into both of this loops at the same time.
So what we’re going to do, what we’re going to do is that, this are called loops so this the front loop because it is closest to you and that’s the back loop because it is farthest to you. So what we want to do is that we want to work with in the back loops only.
So what we’re going to do is we’re now going to start, so we have to do, we’ve just chained up three and we’re going to go into this exact same section right here but on the back loop only. So pull through, pull through at two and two. So what we going to do is, we’re going to just regular double crochet until we, to a certain point here and I’m going to show you where you stop regular double crocheting.
So you grab the back loop only and that creates that ridge. And you’re going to see the string really pulling there, don’t worry about that it’s going to settle itself back down. And what you’re doing is your looking for this line. You see how you got these two that are, these are actually two joined together at the middle there, that’s exactly what you’re looking for.
So what you need to do is that you need to get this and this one to be joined together in the next line coming up. So the very next one can be a regular double crochet so you need to look for the two remaining loops before it start heading back up the other side or back up the other side.
So what you got to do is just stick your needle and these are the two remaining, so you got that one that one before it start shifting and going back up that direction. So what we got to do is just stick in the back, stick it in the back, pulling it through two and holding it just like we did before, that’s the only way, we’re going to create that going up. So we’re going to grab the next one again, so we’re holding those two on the hook and pulling it through and pulling it through to two and now you have three on board so you now want to pull through all three.
So what we’re going to do now is we’re going to, now we’re going to work back going up the other side so the first two half to be connected together in order to make that material wan to turn naturally. So wrap your material around going in pulling it through, pull through two only and hold on your hook going through to the next hole in the back only and pulling through two and now pull through two, alright all three.
So, now what we’re doing is now we’re working back up the other side as you can see, so we’re going to put in regular double crochets all the way like if all the way, all the way up now until you get to your center point of your material.
So, that just happens to be two and if we did our calculation right the third one, this should be your last one before you start making a change which is true.
Okay so your next one here, see this is the last one before it goes down the other side so what we have to do we have to create like we did before, we have to put in two double crochets into that one stitch to make that push itself down the other side. So now this is the top of the other side, so we have to put in two in the back side of that one.
And now we’re going to be working down the other line so there’s probably going to be three if we done right there, should be three regular double crochets right in a row. So what’s going to happen now is that, see this is the last one before it goes up the other side, so you want to keep the last two, is the ones that you need to decrease in order too make to bring them together so you stick your needle in pulling it through, pull through pull through that one and hold on your hook and this is the last one that goes down.
So here you go, I want to bring that together as well so now you got three on there, you got to grab your material and pull through. So, now we’ve just connected them, you see that how are they connected. So we’re go into the next one, bring it through. Pull through two and hold and then the next one, going in, pulling it through, pull through two and then bring it all through three and then that will make the, make it want to go back up the other direction.
So, it’s remaining on the back side of the hooks are the loops, we are making our way to the edge of the material. Make sure you grab the back side of the loop only. So it makes it, you’ll see it if you pay attention of that. So we got one more to go in the back side of the loop. And so this is the last stitch, so there for you have to put and extra one in that stitch in order to make one to go up to the flat and then there we go. So you’re having ridge already starting now.
