Let's Learn a New Stitch! - Solomon's Grid Stitch Tutorial | www.thestitchinmommy.com

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!

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.
