Ladder Crochet Stitch

by M. J. Joachim
The ladder crochet stitch is a very easy combination of chain single crochet stitches. It can be dressed up by weaving ribbon through either the large or small loops. You can also weave a more sturdy material through the loops to make a visor, basket frame or anything else that might need a little more structure to it.
Foundation:  Make a multiple of 6 chains (+ 2 more chain stitches)
Step 1:  Single crochet in second chain from hook

Step 2:  Chain 5, make (1 sc, 3 chain, 1 sc) in 6th chain from hook

[Repeat Step 2 across row to the last 6 chains; chain 5, single crochet in last chain]

Step 3:  Chain 1, turn, single crochet in 1st single crochet

Step 4:  Chain 5, make (1sc, 3 chain, 1 sc) in next 3 chain loop

[Repeat Steps 3 and 4 across row, ending with 5 chain and 1 single crochet in last single crochet of row]
Repeat Steps 3 and 4 for pattern.

That’s all for now, kind people. Until next time, happy crocheting J
