In this DROPS video we show how we crochet "The block stitch". Crochet a chain stitch row with a number of stitches divisible by 3 + 1 chain stitch. We work 15 + 1 chain stitches in the video. Work 15 chain stitches with Color 1. ROW 1: Work 1 chain stitch, 1 single crochet in 2nd stitch from crochet hook, 1 single crochet in next stitch, * 2 chain stitches, skip 2 stitches, 1 single crochet in each of the next 2 stitches *, repeat *-* entire row and finish with 1 single crochet in each of the 2 last stitches, turn. ROW 2: Work 3 chain stitches, 1 double crochet in the 1st stitch, now work 3 double crochet in each chain stitch loop the entire row. Finish with 1 double crochet in the last stitch, but use Color 2 in the last pull through, turn. Cut Color 1. ROW 3: Work 1 chain stitch, 1 single crochet in the 1st stitch, 1 single crochet in between last stitch group and last double crochet in previous row, * 2 chain stitches, 1 single crochet in between stitch groups from previous row *, repeat * - * entire row and finish with 1 single crochet in the 3rd chain stitch from previous row, at same time change to Color 3 in the last pull through, turn. Cut color 2. ROW 4: Work 3 chain stitches, 1 double crochet in the 1st stitch, work 3 double crochets in each chain stitch loop the entire row and finish with 1 double crochet in the last stitch, turn. Cut Color 3. Now repeat 3rd and 4th row to desired length. We use the yarn DROPS Eskimo in the video. This small sample patch is crocheted in DROPS Puna with crochet hook size 3.5 mm = US E/4.

Ok thx! So how do I do the Math when I see a block pattern what I want to remake?

Dear Irma, you should have a number of stitches divisible by 3 + 4 chains - you will have then (as you can see also on the picture to the video): 1 tr, xx tr-groups (we have here 3) and 2 tr. Hope this helps. Happy crocheting!

Hej! Awesome tutorial! Do I make it right that when I begin with 15 + 1, in the oneven rows I end up with 12?

Dear Irma, that's right, we also get 12 trebles (Uk-English)/double crochets (Us-English) in the video. Happy crocheting!

What pattern is this for? I really like it. It would be great for a bag.

Dear Lucy, you can use it for any purposes, make a swatch to check your tension and then you can take any other crochet bag pattern to make your own adjustments. Happy crocheting!
