Di sent this in…from Kate at http://foxslane.blogspot.com
- I am using US crochet terminology.
- I usually use a size 2 hook but its fun to experiment. The smaller the hook-the smaller the ric-rac, the bigger the hook, the bigger the ric-rac.
- I use 4ply mercerised cotton but its fun to experiment with different plies and yarns.
- My words describe the picture above them.
- The stitches I am using are chain (ch) and double crochet (dc).
STEP FIVE – Turn your work so that the crochet you just did is up the top as per the photo.
Then do two dc’s, chain and another dc into the chain space from the previous round.
Then chain three. and turn.
STEP SIX – Repeat step five until you reach your desired length.
Always ch3 after each cluster and then turn.
Stitch onto skirts, socks, quilts, cushions, frames, cards, dresses, tops, pants… anything really.
Here’s the whole thing again in crochet language;
Chain 4 (only this once)
(2dc, ch1, dc) in fourth chain from hook, ch3, turn
(2dc,ch1,dc) in ch1 space from previous row, ch3 turn. Repeat this line until you reach the length you want.
