Wave Stitch

The typical wave stitch has a beautiful raise into the hill tops and lowering down to the valleys. Getting started is usually what stumps a crocheter. Keeping the edges straight is pretty easy once you start to identify the repeat pattern.

Video tutorial is also available to show you how to do this.

Free Pattern

This pattern is in sets of 14 chains. Meaning that 14 chain stitches between the repeat of the pattern exists. In the afghan shown, there is 15 sets of 14 chain stitches. At the end of the line, you will add 2 chains.

  1. Chain 14 = 1 set, repeat Chain 14 over and over until you get your desired width. This aghan has a total of 15 Sets. At the desired length, add 2 stitches.
  2. Skip 2 CH (counts as 1 DC), 2 DC into the next CH, * 1 DC into the next 3 CH, using next 3 stitches create DC3TOG, using next 3 stitches create DC3TOG, 1 DC into the next 3 CH, 3DC in the next 2 chain. Repeat from * all the way to the end. End last stitch with 3DC.
  3. CH 3 (counts as 1 DC), 2 DC into the 1st stitch. *1 DC into the next 3 stitches, Using next 3 stitches create DC3TOG, using next 3 stitches create DC3TOG. 1 DC into each of the next 3 stitches, Next two stitches get 3DC each, repeat from * all the way to the end. Final stitch ends with 3DC.

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.
