Woven chain loop stitch
Fantastically effective and so very, very easy. chain in multiples of 5 plus 1ch for the foundation row. Ch1, dc in second chain from the hook, dc4, chain 8, dc 5, ch8, dc 5 etc.to the end. On the reverse row Turn chain 1, dc in every stitch to the end.
You repeat these two rows and thread the loops through each other to make this little raised rope. Isn't it fab?
These would look better on a larger piece of work as it is worked in multiples of 10. My little swatch doesn't really do it justice but it is going on the blanket pile anyway.
I'm off to check out everyone's hexagons and type up the final hat pattern to publish tomorrow. Jo x
