The Silt Stitch is a pretty stitch! Best of all, it is only a two row repeat making it easy to remember!
It is also created using basic stitches.

The pattern begins with a row of double crochet stitches, followed by a row of clustered single crochet stitches and double crochet stitches. The pattern is repeated throughout the pattern creating a subtly textured piece of fabric.
While the texture is kept mostly to one side, both sides of the fabric are pretty. Because it grows quickly, this is a great stitch for those larger projects.
For this tutorial I will be using the Caron x Pantone yarn by Yarnspirations along with a 6 mm crochet hook. The hook shown here and in the video below is a wooden streamline hook by Furls Crochet. However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose.
This stitch is worked in rows in this tutorial. At the end of each row you will need to either chain one or chain three and turn your work. The chain 3 at the beginning of a row will count as a double crochet stitch.

For this stitch pattern you can use a multiple of three stitches for your foundation chain.
For my swatch I will be making a foundation chain of 21 chain stitches.
Double crochet into the fourth chain from your hook and then in each stitch all the way to the end.
Chain 1 and turn your work.
In the first stitch, work one single crochet stitch and two double crochet stitches. * Skip the next two stitches and in the next stitch work one single crochet and two double crochet.
Repeat from * to the final three stitches, skip the next two stitches and single crochet in the top of the starting chain.
Chain three and turn your work.
Skip the first stitch (at the base of your turning chain), double crochet in the next stitch and in each stitch all the way across.
Chain one and turn your work.
And that’s it!
For the remained of the pattern, repeat rows two and three. Fasten off and weave in your ends.
