Crochet Brick Pattern


This pattern resembles stones, stacked on top of each other. It consists of single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet and chains. This means that even as a beginner, you should be able to figure it out, but I must warn you – the edge might be pretty hard to make. I will try to show and explain as we go along, in order to make it do-able for almost every skill-level.

Edge color: choose a neutral color, it is great if it is a little darker than the contrast color.
Contrast color: Choose one or more nuances of the same color, preferebly lighter than the edge.

ABBREVIATIONS

st(s): stitch(es)
ch: chain
sc: single crochet
hdc: half double crochet
dc: double crochet

Start
For every stone you want on your work, ch 10 sts
(edge color) 1 sc in the 2nd st on the ch, 1 sc in every st on the ch (do not turn with a ch-st)

Row 1
(contrast color)
(1 sc, 1 hdc, 5 dc, 1 sc, ch 1, skip next st) Repeat for all sts on the row (use the ch1 to turn with)

Row 2
Repeat row 1. Make sure the ch1-spaces line up.

Row 3
(edge color)
1 sc in next 9 sts, 1 dc in the skipped st, in the first edge row. PUll this st long (see the video) in order for the fabric to lay flat.

Row 4
1 sc in each st

Row 5
(contrast color)
ch 2, 2 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc, ch 1, skip next st (1 sc, 1 hdc, 5 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc, ch 1, skip the next st) repeat for the rest of the row.
Also do half a stone on the other side: (1 sc, 1 hdc, 3 dc)

Row 6
Repeat row 5

Continue working from row 1 to row 6, alternating between making the stones and capping them with the edge color.
