crochet pyramid with 2sctog tutorial

how nice of you to come by!

 

during one of the last days with a little sun i was crocheting in a corner of the garden and thought maybe i can make a tutorial.

there were several people who showed interest (on my blog and instagram) and asked me about the white crochet stitches

 

the white crochet stitches are 2sctog and like the 2hdctog i love to use them for bags because it creates a solid fabric. additionally it results in a grid that you can use for example embroidery stitches.

 

the tutorial is not a detailed one, but a brief explanation with pictures of how to crochet 2sctog if you work in the round. unfortunately, a few pictures failed and some others are of poor quality, but i hope they are clear enough. i used leftover catania cotton yarn and crochet hook size 3.5 mm, acrylic yarn ends to stuff the pyramid and a needle with a blunt tip to close the edges. my pyramid measures about 9 x 9 cm.

for the best result do not work too loosely.

 

as always i use american english terms:

ch = chains

ss = slip stitch

sc = single crochet

2sctog = 2 single crochet together

 

how to crochet 2sctog 

first i like to say that the original idea of this pyramid shape is from lazy earthlings i only changed the single crochets into 2sctog.

please follow the photos.

 

1. make 21 chains and crochet 1 sc in the second chain from hook and into all subsequent stitches on both sides of the beginning chains, end with ss into first sc and make 1 ch.

 

2a.  draw up a loop in same stitch as ss and in next stitch (see yellow arrows on photo), 3 loops on hook, yo and draw through loops on hook. *draw up a loop in same stitch and next stitch, 3 loops on hook, yo and draw through loops on hook*, repeat between * and * until end of row.

 

2b. the last 2sctog of this row you make this way: draw up a loop in the last sc of the row, skip the ch and draw up a loop in the same stitch as you made the first 2sctog in, yo and draw through loops on hook, ss in first 2sctog, 1 ch.

 

3. all the next rows: draw up a loop in same stitch as ss and in next stitch, 3 loops on hook, yo and draw through loops on hook. *draw up a loop in same stitch and next stitch, 3 loops on hook, yo and draw through loops on hook*, repeat between * and * until end of row. for the last 2sctog draw up a loop in the last stitch of the row, skip the ch and draw up a loop in the same stitch as you made the first 2sctog in, yo and draw through loops on hook, ss in first 2sctog. 1 ch.

 

4. soon your work begins to turn, but just keep on crocheting and it will be fine again.

 

5. if your work is approximately square, 9 x 9 cm, then do not ch at the end of the last row, cut the yarn but keep enough length to close the pyramid, put the yarn ends in it and close the pyramid by sewing the edges together, weave in the yarn end.

as you can see when making your own, the pyramid is somewhat transparent and therefore i have chosen yarn ends in a similar color.

 

6. pyramid is done! enjoy!

 

 

until next time!

  1. Superleuk! Bedankt voor je uitleg, ik kende de dubbele vaste nog niet, leuk om te leren.

  2. Een leuke steek die een mooi stevig resultaat geeft.
    Helaas alleen te gebruiken als je in rondjes haakt.

    • Hallo Estella,
      Dank voor je bericht! Je kunt de steek ook gebruiken bij heen en weer haken, maar het resultaat vind ik minder mooi, maar dat is mijn persoonlijke smaak.

      • Je hebt gelijk, je kunt deze steek wel heen en weer haken, maar het leuke, onverwachte effect krijg je alleen als je in het rond haakt.
        Ik heb deze steek nog niet ergens anders gezien, alleen als steek om te minderen.

        • We zijn het met elkaar eens, want inderdaad, het leuke effect van deze steek krijg je bij het in de rondte haken🙂 Vergelijkbaar met de 2hdctog.
          Dank voor je respons Estella, leuk!
