Pattern Look-Up Request: Crochet Ridge Stitches
Requested by: Kimberly
Ridge Stitches are a great way to create texture in your crochet project. When you work ridge stitches, you work into a different loop of the stitch than you do when you crochet basic crochet stitches. Normally when we crochet, we work under the Front and Back Loops (the “v” of the stitch).
Half Double Crochet – Back Bar or 3rd Loop
Different effects can be created, depending upon which loop you work under – some create a very distinct ridge (i.e. horizontal bar) while others make a more subtle ridge (i.e. working under the front loop). Ribbed fabrics are created by working under one loop of each stitch. The resulting fabric is stretchy and textured.
Ridge Stitches are created by:
- working under the back loop (bl) of a stitch
- working under the front loop (fl) of a stitch
- working under a horizontal bar of a stitch
- working under the back bump of the chain stitch
When you work around the post of a stitch, this is called a raised crochet stitch. It is also a great way to create texture in your project.
