Many years ago I remember completing a blanket in this easy repeating pattern that produced chunky blocks of yarn in a grid-like pattern. It was so easy I immediately fell in love. In fact, the pattern was so easy that I thought I'd never forget it, so I didn't bother to note where I found the pattern. Of course, I soon forgot the details of it, including the name of the pattern, and I thought it was lost to me forever. Or at least until I got lucky and stumbled on it again.
Well last week I must have had a very lucky day because I re-discovered my love affair with the sedge stitch! Yay!!! Oh happy day! I found the following pattern for the sedge stitch listed on Crochetology.net:
1st row: Skip 2ch (count as 1sc), 2 dc into next ch,
*skip 2ch, [1sc, 2dc] into next ch; rep from * to last 3ch, skip 2ch,
1sc into last ch, turn.
2nd row: 1ch (count as 1sc), 2dc into first st, *skip
2dc, [1sc, 2dc] into next sc; rep from * to last 3 sts, skip 2dc, 1sc
into top tch, turn.
rep 2nd row.
Here is the result of my efforts thus far:
Charcoal and Oatmeal colors.
