SC and Longstitch Zigzag Repeat Pattern
Designed by Sandi Marshall 4/98
for playing with color.
For each repeat of graph (9 1/2" x 9 1/2"):
Worsted Weight Yarn:
1 1/2 oz. Color A
1 1/2 oz. Color B
Size H crochet hook
7 sc sts = 2"
7 sc rows = 2"
How to do the sc longstitch: insert hook in sc of three rows below, draw up a long loop, complete as sc.
Note: Crochet over the yarn color not in use to carry it along the back of the work. Part of the effect of this pattern is having the dots of color showing through where you have crocheted over the unused color.
With Color A, chain 34.
Row 1 on graph: sc in 2nd ch from hook; sc in ea ch across. (33 sc)
Rows 2 - 32: Continue to follow graph, making color changes as indicated and working a longstitch when indicated on graph.
If you enjoy working with long strips for making afghans, start with row 1 again after you have completed row 32 on graph. Continue with the same two-color scheme or introduce new colors at the beginning of each new repeat as desired.
If you enjoy working with smaller pieces, end off at the end of row 32. Start a new piece with row 1 on graph.
This can be a good scrap yarn project. Have fun playing with colors ... change colors for every zigzag or at any point you feel like introducing a new color.
One more way to use the graph:
To crochet an afghan all in one piece with this graph, chain 166. This will give you 165 stitches, which is repeating the graph across 5 times. This will make an afghan 47 1/2" wide. Continue to desired length.
For a lap robe, chain 67. (66 sc) Three repeats across the graph and 28 1/2" wide.
