Breezy Blocks Stitch Pattern

Breezy Blocks is a stitch pattern designed for meshed projects, or for warmer weather. No matter if you're making a shawl, a hood, or incorporating it into another pattern, this is one stitch pattern to add to your craft. It's fast, easy and looks beautiful when done.

Mom's Crochet: I originally developed this stitch pattern of blocks to add to a summer clock I was making. This became the hood. I loved it so much that I made a summer shawl using just this stitch.

Multiples of even numbers + 1 

Breezy Blocks Stitch Pattern

Breezy Blocks is one of those stitch patterns that goes so fast that you'll be done with a large project in no time. It incorporates single crochet (sc), double crochet (dc), and triple crochet (tc) into open air blocks. It's great for a quick shawl. I live at 7,800 feet above sea level, our days are often in the 80s - 90s, but our nights quickly drop into the 50s (or colder) when the sun goes down. A shawl made with this stitch is just enough to keep the night chill off.

It is also a stitch pattern that can be done both top to bottom, or side to side, depending on the finished look you want. Also, because the multiples are simply an even number +1 this can easily become part of an existing pattern and be shaped pretty easy.

Chain (ch) an even number of stitches and add 1 to the end of your chain.

Row 1: Single crochet (sc) into the second chain from the hook, and into each chain (ch) across. You should end up with an even number of stitches.

Row 2: Chain (ch) 3 and turn. Skip the first lower single crochet (sc) and double crochet (dc) into the next stitch. Chain (ch) 1, skip 1, double crochet (dc) 1 - across your work.

Row 3: Chain (ch) 4 and turn. Triple crochet (tc) into the stitch just above the previous row's post. Chain (ch) 1, triple crochet (tc) 1 into the stitch above the next post. Continue across until just before the last stitch. 

The last triple crochet (tc) of the row should be done in the second chain (ch) of the previous row. 

Row 4: Chain (ch) 3 and turn. Double crochet (dc) into the stitch just above the previous row's post. Chain (ch) 1, double crochet (dc) 1 into the stitch above the next post. Continue across until just before the last stitch. The last double crochet (dc) of the row should be done in the second chain (ch) of the previous row. 

Pattern Rows

Repeat the below Breezy Blocks pattern until you reach the length you desire. End your entire work with a single crochet (sc) row.

Pattern Row 1: Chain (ch) 1 and turn. Single crochet (sc) across. One stitch goes into the post below, the next goes around the space of the below box.

Pattern Row 2: Chain (ch) 3 and turn. Skip the first lower single crochet (sc) and double crochet (dc) into the next stitch. Chain (ch) 1, skip 1, double crochet (dc) 1 - across your work.

Pattern Row 3: Chain (ch) 4 and turn. Triple crochet (tc) into the stitch just above the previous row's post. Chain (ch) 1, triple crochet (tc) 1 into the stitch above the next post. Continue across until just before the last stitch.

Pattern Row 4: Chain (ch) 3 and turn. Double crochet (dc) into the stitch just above the previous row's post. Chain (ch) 1, double crochet (dc) 1 into the stitch above the next post. Continue across until just before the last stitch. The last double crochet (dc) of the row should be done in the second chain (ch) of the previous row.

What are "Multiples"? Pattern Stitches require groups of stitches to complete. For example, it might take 6 stitches to go through the full pattern and create the look. So you would have to chain multiples of 6.

The +: Some patterns are listed as "Multiples of ___ + ___. The + represents a number of chain stitches to add to the END of your beginning chain (not the end of each multiple).
