Materials Needed

  • I’ve used Caron Simply Soft. I don’t have a yarn quantity for you as The Stitch is Right Game has multiple types of stitches that each use a different quantity of yarn.
  • Size 5 mm or H Hook

To make it easier, all 8 Stitch is Right Waves have the same starting if starting from scratch. Once you get past Row 1, the 8 different designs can be started.

Stitch Multiples for This Crochet Wave Design. Each chevron = 28 sts. Side edges need 18 to keep the project balanced. Therefore; stitch multiple is 28 + 18 chains.

Project Sizes

  • Custom Size Multiples of 28 + 18. Each Chevron is 28 sts and 18 sts for the sides.
  • Scarves Ch 46 – 1 Chevron + Sides = 10″ Wide and Typically 70″ long for adults.

Starting Instructions – If Starting From Scratch

Either choose a project size above or use a customized calculation for your starting chain counts.

  1. Chain the desired width that is listed above.
  2. Dc 4th chain from hook (Chain and dc counts as 2 dc in the same stitch), 1 dc in each next 5 ch. *Dc3tog using the next three chains (bottom of chevron). 1 dc in each of the next 12 chains. 3 dc in the next chain (top of chevron). 1 dc in each of next 12 chains. Repeat from * across until the last 9 chains remain. The final ending of row is dc3tog using the next three chains. 1 dc in each of the next 5. 2 dc in the final chain.
  3. Mark this side as your right side with a stitch marker. You will need to keep an eye on this stitch marker as some of the stitches used in The Stitch is Right to have characteristics where it matters which side you start the pattern on.
  4. You may need to fasten on a new colour and pay attention to the right side and wrong side.

From this point, the below stitching instruction plus 7 others that are part of The Stitch is Right is ready to be built onto this point.

    Mike, I like the concept of the spin wheel design, however I have one question? I have stitch 6 which is the Herringbone crochet wave. I’m to pick 10 colors, however, I’m a little lost on the third spin, which I got “do only once”. Does this mean I that I change the color every row? I’m not get the third spin. Could you please let me know. Thanks.

    • Hi Patricia, the 3rd spin tells you how many times you need to do the particular pattern you spun with wheel #1 If it says do once = 1 time, repeat 1 times = 2 times and repeat 2= 3 times.

    I will follow the vídeo, but I think I found another mistake…on the written instrucciones it says to start on the right side, but on the vídeo Mikey says to start on the wrong side so that the stitchwork will appear on the right side.

  3. Julie Riha

    The written instructions differ from the video, as stated by another person. The video tells you to do herringbone on wrong side, followed by SC on right side. The written instructions say to do herringbone stitch both ways. Which is the correct way for this game we are playing? I don’t want to end up frogging perfectly good hooking to go back and fix the herringbone stitch. Therefore, I am having to pause until this is solved. Pretty please and thank you.

  4. RB

    I’m a little confused about this one – I generally only follow the written pattern and don’t watch the videos, but it was pointed out on FB that the video instructions on this one differ from what’s written. The written pattern says to do the herringbone stitch in both directions, but the video says to do it in one direction and then single crochet back. Could you please clarify? Thank you! 🙂

      Hi RB,
      I just saw the video too and was looking at the written instructions and saw where Mikey wrote under the diagram that row 3 for single crochet was actually missing in his diagram. The stitch consists of one row of the herringbone stitch and one row of sc. Have fun!

  5. I would have preferred that the video instructions for each individual stitch was just about the stitch and not the whole intro as well. Am having to forward thru the whole 20 = minutes to find just the part demonstrating the stitch itslef.

    • I hear you… I was going to put the introduction separate from the 8 stitches but then I have done that before and walluped hard with complaints with people having to find the starting video. I just cannot win in this sort of situation.

      • Sally Martin

        It’s not that hard to use your mouse to fast forward…I’m a visual person, so you can start after you see that the double crochet row is complete… Love this challenge…
