A great stitch but not for the beginner....
Back in August 2012 I made a little bag from a magazine using interlocking block st.
I didn't understand the stitch properly and did what I thought was interlocking block st.
I posted these pictures of the incorrect st....two seperate mesh sections that then interlocked
only to be told it wasn't how to do the st.
So i removed the pictures and added the correct way to do the st.
But it seems I had, purely by chance stumbled upon a stitch/crochet called
INTERLOCKING CROCHET....it was a stitch after all.
......well the beginnings of a stitch, actually many intricate and fabulous stitches
and it seems that its been around for years.
Taught to Tanis some 20 years ago, who has developed the stitch and written a book called INTERLOCKING CROCHET you can find it here.
I haven't seen the book but it is supposed to be all about her work with 80 Interlocking crochet patterns to try out..
It's definitely not a stitch for a beginner, you really do need to remember what you are doing at every moment.....are you stitching through a hole behind a stitch or infront of a stitch...it took me a couple of goes to get it right but worth the effort.
Love this version of interlocking crochet..a tiny square inside another square
I can see lots of colourful experiments to come using just this one version of interlocking crochet coming on.
