Last winter I’ve fell in love with the Alpine stitch so I’ve decided to learn it and make a video tutorial. Finally yesterday I’ve succeeded to make the video tutorial and the chart.
I just love the texture of this stitch, it’s so rich and elegant and I think that works very well for cardigans, sweaters, baby blankets, fall jackets, cushion covers, or just for a border on your next project.
For this stitch I recommend a DK yarn and a 4-4,5 mm hook.
sc= single crochet;
dc= double crochet;
fpdc= front post double crochet.
Make an even number of chains.
This is the video tutorial, just hit “play” to see how this stitch it’s done.
The written pattern:
Row 1: 2ch, 1 dc in 3rd chain of the hook, continue with dc until the end of the row.
Row 2: 1ch, sc in each stitch.
Row 3: 2ch, 1 fpdc in first dc of the row 1; 1dc, *1fpdc, 1dc*; repeat *-*;
Row 4: 1ch, sc in each stitch of previous row.
Row 5: 2ch; *1dc, 1 fpdc*; repeat *-*;
Make sure that where you have a double crochet on the previous row to make a front post double crochet and where you have a front post double crochet you will make a double crochet.
Repeat the pattern from row 2.
At the beginning this pattern may seem a little bit difficult, but actually is very easy, just be patient and you’ll see how beautiful it is and I’m sure you will enjoy it.
