Bumpy Rows Stitch





This is beginners friendly stitch pattern that creates great texture - you need only to know how to do chain, single and double crochet stitches (in US terms). 

This stitch is great for afghans, blankets, scarves, garments or anywhere you want texture while it is still easy to crochet and remember. The best part with this stitch is it creates straight edges, no need of additional border.

Pattern:
Ch 127 (around 72cm/28.5 in), join with ss in the first ch (the starting chain should be multiple of 3 + 1). Be careful to not twist the chain.

Round 1: Ch1,  hdc in same ch, hdc in each ch, end with ss in ch1.

Round 2: Ch1,  hdc in same st, hdc around, end with ss in ch1.

Round 3, 4: repeat round 2.

Round 5: Join white and repeat round 2 with white.

Round 6 [white round]: Ch 4, dc in starting st, skip 2, * [dc, ch, dc] in same st, skip 2 *, repeat * - *, end with ss in the 3rd ch of the starting ch4. Put stitch marker in the last worked st and remove the hook.

Round 7 [grey round]: Join grey in the ch space between the last two dc from the previous round. Ch 3 (counts as dc), 2 dc in the same st, * work 3dc (cluster) in the next chain space *, repeat * - * till the end. SS in the top of the ch 3 from the start of the round. Put the stitch marker here and remove the hook. Continue the next row with the white yarn. 

Round 8 [White round]: With the hook draw the white loop (from the last worked white stitch where the marker was) so it is between two clusters of 3 dc from the grey row and ch 4, dc in the same st. Skip the next grey cluster from the previous row, * [dc, ch, dc] between the clusters of 3 dc from the previous row, skip the next cluster *. Repeat * - * till the end of the round, end with ss in the starting chain. Work only in the white stitches from the previous black round. Remove the marker from the last worked stitch of the grey row and put it here. Continue next row with the grey yarn.

Yarn: Worsted. I used Alize Lanagold - combination of wool and acrylic.
Hook size: 5.5mm or I (hook size conversion chart)
Stitches used: dc, hdc, mc
Finished size: Teenage, adult (men and women) size



Abbreviations:
dc - double crochet
hdc - half double crochet
mc - magic circle (or magic loop) to start the hat
ss - slip stitch

Notes:
- Each round starts with ch 2 (I use ch 2 for dc instead of ch 3 as it makes almost unnoticable start but if you are not used to it you may ch 3 as usual instead).
- Each round ends with ss in the top of the starting ch. 
- The starting chain counts as stitch (dc or hdc).




Pattern:
Round 1: In mc dc 10, ss in first dc (10 st).

Round 2: Ch 2, dc in same st, 2 dc in each st, end with ss in ch 2 (20 st).

Round 3: Ch 2, dc in same st, *dc in next st, 2 dc in next st*, repeat * - *, end with ss in ch 2 (30 st)

Round 4: Ch 2, dc in same st, *dc in next 2 st, 2 dc in next st*, repeat * - *, end with ss in ch 2 (40 st).

Round 5: Ch 2, dc in same st, *dc in next 3 st, 2 dc in next st*, repeat * - *, end with ss in ch 2 (50 st).


For teenage size skip round 6 and 7 and go straight to round 8.

Round 6: Ch 2, dc in same st,  *dc in next 4 st, 2 dc in next st*, repeat * - *, end with ss in ch 2 (60 st).


For women size skip round 7 and go straight to round 8.

Round 7: Ch 2, dc in same st,  *dc in next 5 st, 2 dc in next st*, repeat * - *, end with ss in ch 2 (70 st).

Round 8 - 11: Ch 2, dc in same st, dc around, end with ss in ch 2.

Round 12 (for adult size only - women, men): repeat round 8

Round 13: Join black, ch 1, hdc in same st, hdc around, end with ss in ch1.

Round 14: Join green, ch 1, hdc in same st, hdc around, end with ss in ch1.

Round 15, 16: With offwhite ch 1, hdc in same st, hdc around, end with ss in ch 1

Round 17: Repeat round 14

Round 18: Repeat round 13

Round 19, 20: With brown ch 1, hdc in same st, hdc around, end with ss in ch1. 

And last the green part is sewn with big needle and green yarn. It is very easy to sew. The solid arrows is where the yarn go above, the pattern repeats every two hdc stitches. Simply insert the needle from the wrong side between some of the green hdc (1 on picture), then insert the needle in the upper green side (skip two hdc), repeat arroun the hat, then do the same but in the other direction so you make green 'X'




That's all
