This post is my submission to the Deramores Craft Blog Competition 2015.  Deramores is the UK’s number one online retailer of knitting and crochet supplies.  Visit www.deramores.com for more details.

Deramores has invited 6 crafty bloggers to predict the upcoming trends in the yarn industries.

Two weeks ago I started this knit-alike crochet-along.  We started out with backpost and frontpost stitches.  Then we learned about tunisian crochet.

This week it’s a bit more easy again.  Let’s see what happens if we crochet in the backloop only.

Crochet-along : not-knitted scarf (part 3)

The CAL consists out of 4 parts.

part 1 : back- & frontpost stitches
part 2 : tunisian crochet
part 3 : back loop only crochet
part 4 : knooking

This won’t give you a full length scarf, but you can easily repeat the 4 parts or maybe ad some other great crochet fabric to it. 

materials needed
You can use stash yarn.

Part 1 : 
1 ball (50gr, 120m) of Lana Grossa Cool Wool Merino Big melange
5 mm crochet hook

Part 2 :
1 ball (50gr, 120m) Lana Grossa Cool Wool Merino Big Pink/Purple
1 ball (50gr, 120m) Lana Grossa Cool Wool Merino Big Yellow
6 mm crochet hook

Part 3 :
1 ball (50gr, 120m) Lana Grossa Cool Wool Merino Big Yellow
5 mm crochet hook

instructions PART 3

I’m using US terminology. 

  1. chain 50 + 1
  2. make 1 single crochet (sc) in every loop on the chain, turn (50)
  3. chain 1, make 1 sc in every stitch, but in the backloop only, turn (50)
  4. repeat row 3 until you have 40 rows.
See how you create a ribbed effect ?   This looks very neat as a border for beanies, vests or even blankets.
