Week 19 of the FrankenScrap crochet along

Welcome to week 19 of the FrankenScrap crochet along, the ugliest and scrappiest crochet pattern that you ever did see!

Over the next 49 weeks, we are going to be making 53 different crochet stitches, each in a different piece of this patchwork blanket. The FrankenScrap was designed as a scrap project, so dive into your yarn stash and clear out those odds and ends that you’ve just not been sure what to do with.

Week 19 Of The FrankenScrap Crochet Along

Our next piece of the FrankenScrap crochet along is made with the Vine stitch. For this piece you will need a total of 55 meters of DK / Light Worsted yarn. I used 2 different colours for this piece. King Cole Giza Cotton DK, a 100% cotton yarn that is unfortunately discontinued in DK weight, and is now only available in 4 ply / fingering weight. It is a lovely silky mercerised yarn that is great for amigurumi and fine wearables – especially ones that you need good stitch definition to make the details pop. It is a hard wearing yarn that is easy to work with and just slides over your hook. It is a lovely yarn and one that I would happily work with again.

I also used the multi colour yarn by Cotton Kings. I don’t know which specific yarn it is from this brand, but it is a 100% cotton yarn, but it’s not mercerised so has a much squishier feel to it.

I also used a 4 mm hook – I recommend using Clover Amour hooks. A cost effective hook that is comfortable in your hands thanks to their ergonomic design, so doesn’t make your hands tired when crocheting for long periods of time. I love my Clover hooks and although I own several different hook brands, I inevitably end up going back and using my trusty Clovers.

The Vine stitch looks like berries hanging from a vine – hence the name. The 2 colours separate out the vine from the berries. I’d say this is an intermediate level stitch, and is one of those stitches you don’t see used too often. It is a dense stitch so will make for a warm fabric. The Vine stitch is a hole free stitch and can be used for clothing, blankets and many more crochet projects beside.

Abbreviations

The Vine stitch

Joining Your Pieces

Your finished piece should be 31 stitches wide and 23 rows high, which counts as 37 stitches high for joining purposes since you have dc rows and sc rows. You can see how the pieces are joined together here. If you are following my gauge, then your piece will measure 19.5cm wide and 23.5cm high. Remember this is just a size indication and if your gauge is consistent throughout, then your pieces will fit together nicely even if your sizes do not match with mine.

The Vine stitch should be joined directly below week 3’s Bamboo piece, and they should match each other in length. The right side of the Vine piece will be joined to the left edge of week 18’s Spiked Granny piece. They should join each other completely, so there are no stitches left unattached on either piece.

The layout below shows how your pieces should be attached in relation to each other.
