Slip Stitch & Single Crochet = Ridges

by M. J. Joachim

Alternating slip stitch rows with single crochet rows, I came up with this interesting ridge pattern. It’s probably been done somewhere before, but this is the first time I’ve done it. Keeping the edges straight was a little tricky. I chained 1 and made sc’s in the first sc; I chained 1 and made slip stitches in the next stitch. I also only slip stitched in the top loop of each sc.

It makes for a nice close weave fabric. I’m sure I’ll use this stitch combination for future projects. The above photos show both sides of the fabric I made.

Thanks for visiting Lots of Crochet Stitches today.
