pattern details


This stitch pattern is in US crochet terminology.

  • BLO Back Loop Only
  • Ch Chain
  • Hk Hook
  • Rep Repeat
  • Sc Single Crochet
  • Sk Skip
  • St(s) Stitch(es)

Additional Notes: Ch 1 at beginning of rows does not count as a stitch. By working your stitches in the back loops only, the pattern will look ridged and have more texture. You can use the same stitch pattern to work in the stitches as normal for a flatter, smoother look.
