Spider Stitch (Stitch Sampler Scrapghan CAL 2021 – Part 12)

March 26, 2021

The last week’s stitch is the Spider Stitch! This is a new-to-me stitch, but since I learned it I’ve started a few projects using it. It creates a solid piece of fabric with a pretty texture. Perfect for tops and sweaters that don’t need a tank underneath!

Stitch Sampler Scrapghan Crochet Along 2021 - Hi there! Thank you for your interest in joining my Stitch Sampler Scrapghan Crochet Along 2021! We're going to spend the next 13 week making this pretty blanket, one square at a time!

It’s not too late to join the Stitch Sampler Scrapghan CAL! You can find all the Scrapghan Crochet Along info HERE. Join my FACEBOOK GROUP to share your progress with your fellow crocheters!

Scrapghan Tips

· If you’re having trouble getting the sizing right, remember that it’s easier to adjust a square that’s too small than one that’s too big.

· If a square comes out too small you can add an additional round for the border, go up a hook size, and/or steam block and stretch the square to the size you want.

· The edges might curl. This can be fixed with some steam blocking. It won’t be noticeable after sewing.

· Each square has at least 2 rounds of border. For the last round of the border I used the same color for each square (the dark gray). This is the same color used for the sewing.

· The squares will be released in sewing order, starting with the bottom left. I left a long end for sewing on each of the squares. The long end is approximately twice the length of one side.

· Each square does not need the same number of stitches for the border.


Ch 36

Row 1: (sc, ch 1, sc) all in 2nd ch from the hook, *skip 1 ch, (sc, ch 1, sc) in next ch* repeat from * to * across (36 sc)

Row 2: ch 1, turn, (sc, ch 1, sc) in each ch 1 space across (36 sc)

Row 3 – 40: repeat row 2


With the same color used for the square, work around the entire square

Round 1 (rs): ch 1, sc evenly along the side of the square, working 1 sc in the side of each row to the corner, 3 sc in corner, sc in each stitch across to next corner, 3 sc in corner, sc along the side of the square, working 1 sc in the side of each row to the corner, 3 sc in corner, sc in each stitch to last, 2 sc in last stitch, join to first sc

Change to border/joining color

Round 2 (rs): ch 1, *sc in each stitch across to corner, 3 sc in corner* repeat from * to * around, join to first sc with sl st

Fasten off.

Fasten off. Leave a long end for sewing.

Weave in the other ends.

  5. Seems that this stitch requires a lot more than 95 grams of worsted weight (using H hook) to get 12 inch square!
