Crochet Wattle Stitch - what's not to like ?
This is a superb stitch to work with,very simple so you don't have to keep referring back to the pattern.
I have seen it used for all sorts of things, I have made a super long and super chunky tassled scarf.
I also think it would make a really cool cushion cover, if you made it on a smaller hook, for a denser texture.
Anyway here is how you do it
The stitch works in multiples of 3, so make a chain as long as you require and make sure the total number of chains is divisible by 3.
skip 2 chains, in 3rd chain from the hook, 1dc,1ch and 1 tr all in the same chain, *sk 2, (1dc, 1ch, 1tr) in 3rd chain. Repeat to the end of the chain. Turn.
Ch1, in the chain 1 space between your tr and your dc, (1dc, 1ch, 1dc) into the ch1 space. Place (1dc,1ch, 1tr) in each ch1 space along the row. In the last st place 1 dc. Turn.
Now all you have to do is repeat row 2 until you reach your desired size.For my scarf I used 4 x balls of super chunky and a 12mm hook, made a chain of 18 and just kept going, my scarf is long (not quite Dr Who), it measures 2.5m I then made 5 tassles on each end and it looks fab.
