It’s that time again…time to learn a new stitch! This week I am going to show you Solomon’s Grid. I love this stitch pattern because it is a variation on the Solomon’s Knot or Lover’s Knot and it is great for light shawls or scarves. For this tutorial, I will show you how to make a square. It’s about 10″ x 10″. I hope you enjoy the tutorial! Happy Crocheting!
Solomon’s Grid Tutorial
- DK yarn in any color of your choosing. I used Berroco Vintage DK for this example.
- Furls Size H Crochet Hook
- Yarn Needle
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
dc – double crochet
sk – skip
t-ch – turning chain
Chain a multiple of 4 x an odd number of stitches + 3 for foundation chain (Ex: 4 x 5 + 3)
4 stitches & 2 rows = 1″
Solomon’s Knot: Pull up a loop on hook to approximately 1″, ch 1, insert your hook under leftmost loop, 1 sc to close the knot.
Row 1 cont’d: You will see that there are 3 loops created after you’ve chained 1. Insert your hook under the leftmost loop (You will have 1 loop on the left of your hook and 2 loops on the right). 1 sc to close the knot.
Rows 3-20: Repeat Row 2 ending each row with 1 dc in the t-ch.
And that’s it! You should have a square that is approximately 10″ x 10″ square. I normally make an 8″ x 8″ square but I thought it would be a wonderful stitch to make a shawl or scarf with so I made the square bigger to show you what the stitch pattern would look like.
