Single Compress Stitch

This Single Compress Stitch appears in a free pattern called the Textured Crochet Blocks Afghan. It is 2 Motifs of 6 motifs that are required for that pattern.

The two motifs that I am referring to is that two motifs are identical in stitches but done with different colours to add variety to the afghan.

When changing colour, you have to keep in mind that this is a one sided pattern if you are doing so. The opposite side doesn’t look so organized. So if you are going to change colours, ensure two rows of the same colour to keep it looking great. If you want more than two rows of the same colour, ensure you keep an even number such as 2, 4, 6, 8 and etc.

If you want to do this pattern in a larger size, the multiple counts are 2 sts + 1 ch.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.
