Day 7 – Inset Mosaic + Grit Stitch
Today we revisit the inset mosaic technique which is the same as we did on Day 3 and then move on to the simple Grit Stitch. Scroll down a little to find tutorials for these stitches.
Tr3d (treble 3 down) – working in front of ch-sps from previous 2 rows, treble in missed st 3 rows below.
Row 1 (RS): Remove marker, pull up a loop in Pear Drops to join, 1 ch, 1 dc, *2 ch, miss 1 st, 1 tr3d, 2 ch, miss 1 st, 1 dc; rep from * to end. Turn. 59 sts
Tip: The stitch count here only counts the dc and the tr3d stitches, not the chains. Your work stays the same width and the stitch count will go back up at the end of the mosaic section.
Row 2 (WS): 1 ch, 1 dc, *2 ch, miss 2ch-sp, 1 dc; rep from * to end. Turn.
Row 3 (RS): Drop Pear Drops, but do not fasten off, pull up a loop in Strawberry Milkshake, 1 ch, 1 dc, *1 tr3d, 1 dc, 1 tr3d, 2 ch, miss 1 st; rep from * to last two 2ch-sps, [1 tr3d, 1 dc] twice. Turn. 89 sts
Row 4: 1 ch, 4 dc, *2 ch, miss 2ch-sp, 3 dc; rep from * to last st, 1 dc. Turn.
Fasten off Strawberry Milkshake. You have finished the mosaic section!
Row 5: Pull up a loop in Pear Drops, 1 ch, 4 dc, *1 tr3d, 3 dc; rep from * to last st, 1 dc. Turn. 117 sts
Rows 6–11: 1 ch, 1 dc, *miss 1 st, 2 dc in next st; rep from * to end. Turn. 117 sts
Row 12 (WS): 1 ch, dc across. Fasten off.
