How to Crochet a Sidesaddle Shell Stitch Part 1/6
Good Morning, all my YouTube friends. And today, we have the Sidesaddle Shell Stitch. And this to me looks like organized chaos and it is basically a shell stitch but done a lot differently and this is just a quick overview. Of course, always my starting, to show you what it will look like before you start your project. And this, I’m going to be making this as a runner for my coffee table going the other direction so it will be like that going all the way across.
So anyway, if you look closely at the pattern here and if you do email me a private email, I will send you the pattern, a good copy one. And basically, you are going to make, everything is in chains of six. So you’re going to make six chains and at the end of the six—so no matter how far you go across, always count your sixes. But at the very end of your chain, you’re going to want to leave four extra. So you keep going on sets of six and at the end you’re going to end four.
Now, when you’re going across, what’s going to happen is you’re going to get to the end of your line that you’ve chained over, however you may want to go. You’re going to then chain up three spots. So one, two and three. And this acts as part of the four that will come down. Because in the other side, you’re going to see that that’s important. So this will act as one treble and then you’re going to go into the same spot here for three double crochet stitches. And then, you’re going to single crochet into the third one over so you’re going to leave two blank and then single crochet there. You’re going to then start your doubles and then skip over two and the doubles are going to be right there and you’re going to do three of those. And once you get three done, you’re going to do just one chain.
And then what’s happened here is that—what we’re going to do is starting your stitch in the actual chain. We’re going to actually attach it to this treble here. Okay, so you’re going to single stitch and then you’re just going to come back ward into this treble and then make three stitches into grabbing that treble and I’ll show you how to do that. Then, you’re going to single crochet leaving two single crochet there. And basically, you’re going to repeat. So again, skip over two, double crochet three into the exact same hole, chain only one, and then you’re going to crochet three double trebles using this treble here as a base. And then once you get your three undone, skip two and then secure it there. So let’s show you how to do that. Hopefully, that’s clear enough for you to understand.
