Have you tried the grit stitch yet?

The grit stitch is such an under-rated and under-used stitch! It is such a versatile stitch! You could literally use it for anything – garments, bags, washcloths, baskets, blankets ….

Just get a load of this texture

Working the grit stitch is simple and great if you are a beginner or whether you are more experienced and want a great stitch to work while watching TV or need five minutes away from the kids.

THE GRIT STITCH

The grit stitch is worked over two stitches. It consists of   *(sc, dc) in the first st, sk the next st* repeat.

To work in rows you would have a starting chain of 2 +1,

Row 1: dc in third ch from hook, sk next chain, *(sc, dc) in the next ch, sk the next ch* and sc only in the last ch.

Row 2: ch1, turn, dc in first st, *sk1, (sc, dc) in next st* to end and sc only in last stitch.

It really is that simple!
