איך לסרוג שטיח איקסים מפוצלים בחוטי טריקו – Crochet round waistcoat cross stitch rug


Hi, I’m Liat, from Osa Einaim 🙂 I’m going to demonstrate the waistcoat-cross-stitch rug It’s a single crochet cross stitch rug, in combination with the center single crochet stitch. Because I like to complicate things… 😉 As usual, we’re going to start with a magic ring… I don’t really mind how you’re doing it, It needs to be closed with a chain stitch, If your magic ring already has a knot at the end,
you don’t need the extra chain stitch I’ll start with 6 single crochet stitches, into the ring, and I’ll tighten the ring. I’ll close this base round with a slip stitch Into the first single crochet in the round. (Which is a bit tight, since I’ve tightened my ring too much…) I’m starting the first cross stitch round with 1 chain stitch, and placing a marker under my hook. The first cross-stitch will be made by making 1 single crochet into the 2nd stitch in the round, and then, 1 single crochet into the first stitch in the round, which I’ve actually skipped. I’ll make sure to pull up a loop in this second stitch, as high as I can. For most of you it’ll feel too high, but make sure to exaggerate it… The next cross-stitch will be made into the next stitch – I’ll make the first single crochet
into the next unworked stitch, and then I’ll go back into the previous stitch,
in which I’ve already worked. It will be hiding under the V shape
of my previous cross-stitch. Once again I’ll make 1 single crochet there,
and will make sure to pull up a high loop. I’ll continue with cross-stitches till the end of this round – 1 single crochet into the next unworked stitch, and 1 single crochet into the previous worked stitch. At the end of this round we’re supposed to have 6 V shape cross-stitches OK. After making the 6th crossed-stitch,
I’ll need to move my marker and begin making the next round. From now on we will work in spiral rounds,
WITHOUT closing each round with a slip stitch, since I think it looks better this way… 🙂 If you want you can close the rounds, but I don’t recommend it. I’ll start the first cross stitch of the next round with 1 single crochet into the stitch
in which I have my marker So, if it’s too complicated,
put another marker under your hook, and start the next single crochet
into this stitch where your first marker is in (I’ll just take MY marker, and put it under my hook…) and, into the stitch where my marker has been,
I’ll work my first single crochet. The 2nd single crochet for this first cross-stitch, (since it needs to conceal our slip stitch of the base round), will be worked into the last worked stitch, it is here…
it feels far away, but keep the faith 😉 Again, make sure to pull up a high loop to cover the mess… I’ll continue with the cross-stitches. The next one will be as before – 1 single crochet into the next unworked stitch and 1 single crochet into the previous stitch. Starting from the 3rd cross-stitch of this round, I’ll start to also use the Waistcoat stitch (=center sc). I’ll start the 3rd cross-stitch as usual –
making a regular single crochet and now, under the previous stitch, in which I should have gone back to
(there is a single crochet with an open V-shape there) I’ll make my 2nd single crochet,
NOT into the usual previous stitch, but into its V-shape, as in a waistcoat stitch AKA Center sc or Split sc
(with an accent…) So this was our 3rd cross-stitch The next cross-stitch will be done as usual since I don’t have a V-shape under the previous stitch… so I’ll make it as done before. In this round we’ll alternately have
one usual cross-stitch, and one cross-stitch which we can do with a center sc,
into the V-shape (under the previous stitch). so I’ll work this way across, making cross-stitches alternately till the end of this round. At the end of the 2nd cross-stitches round, we’ll have 12 cross-stitches around, and it will end in the stitch BEFORE the marker. I’ll put the marker under the hook,
and will go on with another round of cross-stitches, exactly the same way while combining the center sc when I have an empty V-shape In this round I’ll work also into
the stitch where my marker is and then we’ll have at the end of
the 3rd cross-stitches round 25 cross-stitches This is how your work will look like,
at the end of the 3rd cross-stitches round. We can see that our work start to look a bit wavy…
like there are too many stitches in the round. if your work actually has waves, you’ll have to skip this 3rd round,
undo it, and go on without it… We’ll continue, and now do a round of
skipping cross-stitches. So far, we haven’t skipped any stitches
while making the cross-stitches. We’ve actually doubled the number of our stitches, which is far too much, If you’ll consider crochet math basics. Now we’ll be doing rounds without any increases. I’ll move my marker again, put it under my hook, And I’ll make skipping cross-stithces – by skipping 1 stitch, (the one above the V-shape we have from previous round) and always starting the cross-stitch
in a middle stitch with a single crochet to this middle stitch,
between the two V-shapes and the 2nd single crochet will always be worked
into the V-center of my skipped stitch Again I’ll skip one stitch, begin the cross-stitch with a single crochet
into the next stitch and then complete it with a 2nd single crochet,
into the V center of the skipped stitch We will repeat this until the end of this round At the end of this round, we will still have 25 cross-stitches then we will re-position our marker, and begin another round just the same way,
without increases And again, also at the end to the next round, we will still have 25 cross-stitches. This is my rug after 2 rounds of
skipping cross-stitches, without increases. and after a total of 5 cross-stitches rounds. I will do 1 more round of skipping cross-stitches, without increases. If your rug looks like this,
and your V-shapes are quite close together make another round of skipping cross-stitches. If you have more gaps between your V-shapes, just continue straight to the next increasing round. A big part of this pattern is the ability to switch between rounds with or without increases… So this is how my rug looks after another round of skipping cross-stitches. I’ll now make an increasing round. The next increasing rounds in this rug will be done
by on and off increases, and not by increasing on each cross-stitch,
like we did in the first 3 rounds. I’ll now show you how… We will move our marker as usual The first cross-stitch will be an increasing cross-stitch, with no skipping. I’ll make a single crochet in the next unworked stitch and will make my 2nd single crochet into the prev stitch, in which I’ve already worked. In this case I don’t have a V-shape under this stitch so I’ll work into the regular stitch. The following will be a skipping cross-stitch – I’ll skip one stitch and begin the next cross-stitch into the next stitch When I want to go back into the stitch I’ve skipped, I have an empty V-shape here so I’ll work into it Again – 1 cross-stitch without skipping a stitch – I’ll work into the next unworked stitch and going back into the previous (worked) stitch, which has an empty V-shape under it,
so I’ll work into it Again, 1 skipping cross-stitch, and since I have an empty V-shape
I’ll make the 2nd single crochet into it Now, a cross-stitch without skipping and this time we can see
that we don’t have an empty V-shape, so I’ll work the 2nd single crochet
into the prev regular stitch I’ll continue this round making 1 skipping cross-stitch
and 1 cross-stitch without skipping, this is while when I have an empty V-shape
I’ll work my 2nd single crochet into it, and when I don’t have an empty V-shape,
I’ll work the 2nd single crochet into the regular stitch. I’ll continue this across this round,
until I get to the marker. We’ll do increasing rounds,
and skipping cross-stitch rounds, alternately, as needed. It will be different between one yarn to another, and between one crocheter to another… Usually, I begin with 1 increasing round and 1 skipping round, and again 1 increasing round, and 1 skipping round. in most cases, when the rug is getting bigger you’ll be able to make more skipping rounds, between your increasing rounds. but unfortunately, you’ll need to “feel it”, as you go… That’s it. you’re welcome to keep following my posts, I hope this was useful, and send me pictures of your rugs! 🙂 Bye…
