Introduction: How to Crochet the Alpine Stitch
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.
Step 1: Row 1:
Chain 2, 1 dc in 3rd chain of the hook, continue with dc until the end of the row.
Step 2: Row 2:
Chain 1, sc in each stitch.
Step 3: Row 3:
Chain 2, 1 fpdc in first dc of the row 1; 1dc, *1fpdc, 1dc*; repeat *-*;
Step 4: Row 4:
Chain 1, sc in each stitch of previous row.
Step 5: Row 5:
Chain 2; *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.
