How to Read a Pattern and Crochet a Lacy Stitch

Hi there,

I hope you are enjoying the different Patterns so far!  I am going to help you read a pattern in this video and crochet with you so you can understand how to follow a pattern.
Let me know if you have any questions!

Here is the written pattern and the link to my you tube channel -

Multiple of 6 + 1 plus 5 chs
Sc = single crochet,  Dc = double crochet,  Sp = space,  Tr = treble,  St = stitch, 
Ch = chain,  * * = work all in between the stars,  Tog = together,  yo – yarn over, ss = slip stitch

Row 1: Working on chain foundation, DC in 6th ch from hook.
*Ch 5, skip 5 chs, work (DC, Ch2, DC) in next ch. Repeat from *across, Ch 5 Turn.

Row 2: DC under first ch 2, *Ch 2, SC under ch 5, Ch 2, work (DC, Ch 2, DC) under ch 2. Repeat from * across, working last (DC, Ch2, DC) under turning ch, Ch 5, Turn.

Row 3: DC under first ch 2, *Ch 5, work (DC, Ch 2, DC) under ch 2 between the next 2dc. Repeat from * across, working last (DC, Ch 2, DC) under turning ch. Ch 5, turn.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 for pattern


  1. After watching the Utube video on this, it is great to have the pattern. I am off to make something using this! thank you

  2. Hi Hilly, I just found your channel on you tube. Love love what you do. I am a crocheted about to retire, and looking for retro patterns to challenge me, now that I have the time Thank you. You are a great teacher.

  3. Hi!! I'd like to know what book this pattern is in and I think it would be nice to have a picture of the pattern so I could look at it and learn how to read it too!! Thanks!!
