Can anyone identify this stitch?  My grandma made it for me 20 years ago and now I want to make one for my kids.  But I have tried many stiches that just don't seem to be the same.

Thanks for your help, I haven't done any crocheting since my grandma showed me how to 20 years ago! :)

It looks like 2 stitches together. I think I see a hdc in there, but I'm not sure.

To me, it looks like it could be the brick stitch, as shown in this tutorial http://crochet.about...y/blcrazyst.htm

but with 3 stitches per "brick" rather than 4.

 

Due to the years of use, the stitches have stretched in places and compacted in others, so i think that any new piece of crochet is not going to really look exactly like it, even if it is the same stitch pattern.  

 

Following what Jennifer said in post 2, you could try doing 2hdctog, chain 1, then on the next row do the 2hdctog into the chain space, that might look very similar.  

 

It's very cool that you still have and use it!

Thanks ladies! I did try two stitches in one, but it's not the same.  Grandma's stitch all comes together in one big stitch,  I have tried half double and a few others, just cant get it. I will look at the brick stitch, thanks Kathy!

It may be hdc2tog. If you look at the base of each one, you can see 2 stitches.

I tried a few hdc2tog, ch1 and this is what I got. Similar, but not quite the same.

You could try dc2tog. Might be even closer, but idk.

Also dc dec is on there as well.

I believe it might be: draw up a loop as if doing a sc, but do not finsih , draw up another loop as if doing a sc, then draw through all loops together, ch 1 etc.  coming back, do that "sc cluster in the ch 1 space.

Thanks Mamarose, I will give it a try, since I still can not figure it out.

I haven't tried it myself, but that's what it looks like to me.

I initially thought it was a dc and hdc together with a chain in between.  But I tried it and that wasn't it.

 

I'm thinking it's simply a single and hdc across and done in the sc of the previous row and not working into the hdc, no chains.  So for the starting row I'd work an sc and hdc in every other chain to start.  I know it doesn't sound like it could be right, but give it a shot on a guage swatch!  Do at least 3 rows to see the pattern of the stitches and compare to your grandmas.

I was just poking around looking for a pineapple edging and found this Pineapple Stitch from 1917 that looked like the photo you posted... maybe with a chain in between??

 

Hope this helps...

I like that Pineapple stitch, not so sure about the fringe for every row, but stitch is cool!


I have been busy, so I still haven't decided on a stitch to use yet.  Hope to figure it out soon so I can get it started! :)

 

Thanks again!
