How to work the crochet tweed stitch – video tutorial
I have filmed a quick and easy video tutorial on how to work the crochet tweed stitch. Check it out below and subscribe to my YouTube Channel.
For the video tutorial I have used tweed yarn from Hobbii in keeping with the stitch name! It is Tweed Delight yarn and I love the way the sample worked up.
I also used 5 mm crochet hook that added just enough ease to this stitch.
What project can I use crochet tweed stitch for?
As you can see this great crochet stitch creates a lovely textured fabric. If you watched the video tutorial you can see that it stretches nicely widthways as well as lengthways.
These are both great qualities you would look for when crocheting garments.
That is why I would recommend using the crochet tweed stitch for fall or winter garments like sweaters or cardigans.
Secondly, I think this stitch would be perfect to use for homewares too. Items like crochet blankets, throws or cushion covers would be great.
However, it is not limited to just these. You can make beautiful crochet hats, scarves and winter shawls using this lovely textured crochet stitch.
Is crochet tweed stitch a yarn eater?
Simple answer is no.
Crochet tweed stitch does not take any more yarn than crocheting a fabric with basic stitches like single or double crochet.
You do not use any more yarn for these stitches when crocheting the tweed stitch.
The texture of this stitch is created by grouping these stitches into a different formation. So consequently you do not use more yarn, you just place the stitches into different places.
In the terms of tweed stitch, you will place all three stitches into same space. Then skip a couple of stitches.
This is what creates the texture, not extra yarn.
That is another great thing about the stitch, it is textured, however it does not feel bulky at all.
For this stitch you will need to chain multiples of 3 + 2.
Row 1: starting in 2nd ch from the hook, *(1 sc, 2 dc) in same st, miss 2 sts; repeat from * across until last st, 1 sc in last st, turn.
Row 2: 1 ch (doesn’t count as a stitch here and throughout), (1 sc, 2 dc) in first sc, * miss 2 sts, (1 sc, 2 dc) in next sc; repeat from * across to last st, 1 sc in last st, turn.
Repeat Row 2 for pattern.
