Week 25 Of The FrankenScrap Crochet Along

Our next piece of the FrankenScrap crochet along is made with the Modern Granny stitch. For this piece you will need a total of 31 meters of DK / Light Worsted yarn. I used a hand dyed mini skein of yarn for this piece. Unfortunately I’ve lost the tag to show where I got it from, but I do remember that it is 100% cotton and came from a small indie yarn dyer.

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 Modern Granny stitch is a variation of the ever popular Granny stitch and as the name suggests, puts a modern twist on the stitch. It essentially looks like an upside down Granny stitch stacked on top of a regular Granny stitch. Personally I much prefer the look of the Modern Granny stitch and love the open and light fabric it creates.

The Modern Granny stitch would suit being used for wraps, summer tops and the like. Anything that you want a light and breezy fabric for.

Joining Your Pieces

Your finished piece should be 67 stitches wide and 6 rows high, which counts as 12 stitches high for joining purposes since you have all dc rows. You can see how the pieces are joined together here. If you are following my gauge, then your piece will measure 41.5cm wide and 6.5cm 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 Modern Granny piece should be joined to the bottom of week 24’s Crossed Doubles piece with the left hand corners lining up. You will also join your Modern Granny piece to the unattached rows of the bottom of week 19’s Vine stitch piece. The right hand edge of your piece should be joined to the top left hand 12 stitches of week 23’s Thistle stitch piece.

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