Week 20 Of The FrankenScrap Crochet Along

Our next piece of the FrankenScrap crochet along is made with the Brick stitch. For this piece you will need a total of 59 meters of DK / Light Worsted yarn. I used Grundl Nizza for this piece a 100% cotton yarn with a very pretty marled look that also has an almost ombre finish to it as it worked up, getting brighter and fading to create a lovely final look . Unfortunately this yarn has now been discontinued.

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 Brick stitch creates the look of a brick wall by using raised texture to outline the pattern of the bricks. It is a simple stitch to make, and as long as you keep count of your stitches, should pose no trouble for an experienced beginner.

The Brick stitch can be used for a wide variety of crochet projects including scarves, clothing and blankets. The texture of this stitch is very subtle so does not look bold when used for clothing items.

Abbreviations

  • Ch = Chain
  • Sk = Skip
  • St = Stitch
  • Sc = Single crochet
  • Dc = Double crochet

Start by making a foundation chain of 32 with a 4mm hook.

Row 1. Make a dc in the 4th ch from your hook (your turning ch counts as the first st of the row). Make a dc in each st across – 30 st 

Row 2. Turn and ch 1. Make a sc in the first st then make a sc in the front loop only in each st across until you reach the last st. Make a sc in the last st of the row – 30 sc

Row 3. Turn and ch1. Make a dc turning ch in the first st then make a dc in the next st.

Starting row 3 of the Brick stitch

Next *make an extended dc in the unused loop 2 rows below (YO, insert your hook into the st, YO and pull up a loop. YO and pull through 1 loop only. YO and pull through 2 loops, YO and pull through the last 2 loops).

The Brick Stitch

Joining Your Pieces

Your finished piece should be 30 stitches wide and 31 rows high, which counts as 47 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 18.5cm wide and 24.5cm 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 Brick stitch should be joined below week 18’s Spiked Granny piece, but only to the last 30 stitches, and sit flush with the right hand edge of the blanket. The first 19 stitches on the left hand side of the Spiked Granny piece will be left unattached.

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