Want to learn how to print this pattern (and all crochet patterns from any website) without printing the comments, all the pictures, etc? You can find out how by watching the short video tutorial in this post.
Row 1: dc in the third chain from the hook. Dc in the next 4 stitches. Dc2tog, dc 2 tog. Dc in the next 4 stitches. *Work 2 dc into the next 2 stitches. Dc in the next 4 stitches. Dc2tog, dc2tog. Dc in the next 4 stitches.* End with 2 dc in the last chain. Ch 2, turn.
Row 2: dc in the first st (your ch 2 and your first dc are worked in the same stitch) and in the next 4 stitches. dc2tog, dc2tog. Dc in the next 4 stitches. *Work 2 dc into the next 2 stitches. dc in the next 4 stitches. dc2tog, dc2tog. dc in the next 4 stitches.* End with 2 dc in the last stitch. Ch 2, turn.
NOTE: you will have 2 dc in the first and last stitch of each row (ch 2 counts as dc).
You will continue repeating row two until you have 55 rows (or really, you could keep going as long as you’d like). My stripe pattern is as follows:
3 rows white, 3 rows gray, 5 rows white, 2 rows pink, 5 rows gray, 2 rows white, 5 rows gray, 5 rows pink, 3 rows white, 5 rows gray, 2 rows white, 5 rows pink, 5 rows white, 3 rows pink, 2 rows white.
PLEASE NOTE: If you’re waves aren’t lining up or you don’t have enough space at the end of row 2, please see this post. There’s a 2 minute video that will answer your questions!
