Day 6 – Crossed Trebles, changing to inset mosaic

Today’s section introduces a new stitch (crossed trebles) and revisits a couple of old favourites – spike dc (which we did on Day 2 and Day 4) and inset mosaic (which we first encountered on day 3 and 4). Scroll down for a tutorial on the lovely new stitch – it’s SO satisfying, you’re going to love it!

Special abbreviations
2 ctr (2 crossed trebles) – miss next st, 1 tr in next st, 1 tr in missed st, working over the previous tr.
Spike dc (spike double crochet) – insert hook in st 2 rows below, yrh, pul to height of working row, yrh, draw through both loops on hook.

Start crocheting…

Row 1 (RS): Join Strawberry Milkshake with a standing dc in first st, *1 spike dc, 1 dc; rep from * to end. Turn. 117 sts
Row 2 (WS): 1 ch, dc to end. Turn.
Row 3 (RS): 3 ch (counts as 1 tr), 1 tr, [2 ctr] 57 times, 1 tr. Turn.
Row 4 (WS): 1 ch, dc across. Turn.
Row 5: 1 ch, 2 dc, *2 ch, miss 1 st, 3 dc; rep from * to last 3 sts, 2 ch, miss 1 st, 2 dc. Turn. 88 sts
Row 6: 1 ch, 2 dc, *2 ch, miss 2ch-sp, 3 dc; rep from * to last 2ch-sp, 2 ch, miss 2ch-sp, 2 dc. Turn. Do not fasten off.
Leave loop on a locking marker until tomorrow.

      Hi Kirsten,

      I’m afraid the CAL is only available on our website at the moment but we’ll make a note of your suggestion. πŸ™‚

      I am copy and pasting into a word document and printing out, it’s a lot easier!

      Kirsten _ I started writing down each day, as I too find it easier on a paper pattern. It’s not so laborious as it sounds as the stitches are repeated over certain days, so just cross ref with the earlier pattern
