Single Crochet Fence Stitch
(Multiple of 4 +3)
This type of crocheting has limitless possibilities and looks great as a sweater or scarf. Sit down and draw out a pattern of single crochet stitches and spaces and then implement. In this example my pattern is 2 single crochet stitches followed by two spaces.
To create this pattern crochet a multiple of 4 plus 3 additional stitches. Next, add a single crochet stitch to the second and third loop from the hook. Chain 2 and skip the next two stitches, add a single crochet to the next two stitches. Repeat across.
See the bumps at the top - these are my chain 2 spaces. Chain 3 and turn.
In the next row you will add a single crochet to each of the two chain spaces and chain 2 to skip the single crochet stitches from the previous row.
See in the above picture how the chain 3 makes the first chain 2 space. Your single crochet stitches are then worked in the chain loops.
In the third row, add a single crochet to each of the two chain spaces from the previous row. Repeat pattern across.
