Understanding Crochet Stitch Multiples

When crocheters love a pattern concept, some want to change the size of the project. When there is more than 1 stitch that makes up the pattern look. A multiple must be determined.

When people message us to figure out a stitch count, we must either look at a pre-drawn diagram but in most cases, we have to draw the diagram by hand on graph paper to figure it out. This is the only way I know how to figure out a multiple, I must draw it out.

Sometimes a designer will provide the stitch multiple for you. What complicates the stitch multiple is the additional chains needed to keep the stitch repeat in balance. The multiples could be 3 + 2 or even things like 12 + 28.

The first number is the actual repeat of of the stitch multiple. The second number is the additional chains needed for the balance. If both numbers are the same like 4 + 4. The stitch multiple is just stated as 4.

Turn your phone sideways if the PDF isn’t big enough for you. The answer to the Workshop at the end can be found in the pattern itself. It’s called the Love Knot Crochet Blanket. The designer recorded it on the pattern if you want to check to see if you are right.

    Thank y’all for everything you do to help those of us lacking your talent!! I just wish my Mama was still here, she always had a hard time finding patterns, tutorials or help of any kind, as she was a southpaw (lefty). She would have loved you! Hope y’all had a Merry Christmas, wishing you a very Happy New Year from east Texas!
