The section on knit stitches continues. Today we’re going to have fun doing the crochet Bud stitch together! This knit stitch is adorable, enhanced with plump seeds just waiting to sprout on a sweater or even a scarf.
We’ve chosen the Vintage yarn, in cotton and alpaca, with a prefaded effect for the Bud stitch. Here it’s in the colour Chocolate but you can find loads of other gorgeous colours on our shop.
Let’s get started.
How to crochet the Bud stitch
It’s done on a number of foundation chains in multiples of 5 + 1.
Round 1: chain 3, * skip 4 chains from the hook, 1 double crochet in each of the following chains
round 2 – 4 – 5: chain 3, double crochet 1 in each stitch of the previous round
round 3: chain 3, *double crochet 1 in each of the 4 following stitches, blend 1 [=(1 yarn over on the hook, insert the hook into the stitch below, 1 yarn over on the hook and pull the thread out, pull it to the height of the previous stitch) start again from the part between the round brackets another 4 times, 1 yarn over and bind off all the loops on the hook in one go, 1 chain to close the blend] *, repeat always from * to *, finish off the round with 1 double crochet in each of the last 5 stitches
round 6: repeat from the 2nd round.
Start with the part that comes before the 1st asterisk, repeat from * to * for all the round and finish off with the part that comes after the 2nd asterisk.
