“SIMONA CARDIGAN” – CROCHET PATTERN BY HILARIA FINA

También disponible en: Español

Punk music buds as kind of simple and noisy rock, it turned to be a way of transgression that challenged and criticised the patterns established by society. Punk philosophy could be summarised in the next three following points: do it yourself or do it your way, refuse dogmas and question what established, reject fashions and mass society.
Punk movement aesthetics were also looking to give a transgressive and different image. Simona is inspired by “bomber” jackets style, very typical from this movement.

STITCHES AND TECHNIQUES USED


MAGIC RING
Wrap yarn around two fingers, leaving 7cm long tail. Insert hook right to left under the two rows and pick the strand up (the one that leads to the skein), pulling the yarn back under the two rows, YO and pull through the loop (do not count as first stitch). Keep working the following stitches into the ring. Remove the ring from your fingers and pull the tail end to tight the ring.

SLIP KNOT
With about 15 cm of yarn, make a loop. Insert your hook through the center of the loop, draw the end of the yarn through the loop, and pull on the tail to tighten.

CHAIN (ABBREVIATION ch)
YO and pull through loop on hook.

SLIP STITCH (ABBREVIATION: sl st)
Insert hook in stitch, YO and pull through both loops on hook at once.

SINGLE CROCHET (ABBREVIATION: sc)
Insert hook in stitch, YO and pull through the stitch (2 loops on hook), YO and pull through both loops on hook at once.

DOUBLE CROCHET (ABBREVIATION: dc)
YO, insert hook into the stitch, YO and pull the yarn through the stitch (3 loops on your hook), YO and pull through the first 2 loops on the hook in one go (2 loops remain on the hook), YO again and pull through the remaining 2 loops on the hook.

BACK LOOP ONLY (ABBREVIATION: BLO)
Instead of crocheting in the entire stitch which is both loops on the top of the stitch, you only go through one of the loops.

FRONT LOOP ONLY (ABBREVIATION: FLO)
Instead of crocheting in the entire stitch which is both loops on the top of the stitch you only go through one of the loops.

CROCHETING INTO THE BACK BUMP OF A CHAIN
Usually you crochet in the right side of the chain. When you turn your chain, you’ll see a small ‘bump’ on the wrong side of each stitch. Insert your hook under this back bump.

INVISIBLE FASTEN OFF
Cut yarn, pull the yarn tail through the last stitch completely and thread yarn tail onto yarn/tapestry needle. Skip one stitch then insert needle into the next stitch under booth loops of the second stitch of the last round. Next, insert needle back into the same stitch that the yarn tail is coming from but into the back loop only. This creates a closing stitch. Weave tail into wrong side before trimming.

HOW TO JOIN TWO PIECES WITH A SLIP STITCH SEAM
Line up the stitches of the 2-pieces of crocheted fabric with the wrong sides of the work facing.
PLace a slip knot on your crochet hook. Insert the crochet hook into the both loops of the top piece of fabric and both loops of the bottom piece of fabric, YO and pull the yarn through all loops on the hook in one go.
Insert your hook into the next set of stitches (both loops of the top piece of fabric and both loops of the bottom piece of fabric), YO and pull the yarn through all loops on the hook in one go
Repeat across.

NOTES


  • This pattern is written in US terminology.
  • When you crochet in rows, each row stars by turning the piece and working some chain stitches (know as the “turning chains”) to get the right height for the following stitches.
  • When you crochet in closed rounds, you will close each round with a slip stitch into the first stitch of the round. The next round starts with one or more initial chain stitches (know as the “turning chains”) to get the right height for the following stitches and follows the same direction as the previous round.
