How to Zigzag Lozenge Stitch in Craft
The zigzag stitch is a common stitch expert cricketers’ use to create
Afghans and more. The steps are relatively easy and must be learned to
finish the “Evening News” Afghan, or other patterns of Afghans. After
you finish your chain, bobble, Chevron, cluster, cross double,
crossbatch, V-stitch, etc, you will need to zigzag your lozenge
stitches. To get started we encourage you to read the steps below.
How to Zig your Zag to create the lozenge stitch:
To start the zigzag lozenge stitching you will need a base. The base is
factored by multiples of two, plus one. In the first row, starting on
the left side, chain two stitches to start your half-double crochet.
Half double in the following stitch and skip one stitch including a
half double, chain, and another half double in the following stitch.
Repeat the steps starting with the final stitches skip one stitch and
work two half doubles in your final stitch, then turn.
How to half double stitch:
Chain stitch and then intersperse your hook so that it goes into the
second chain stitch and away from your hook. Chain stitch again and
draw up your yarn bringing it through your finished chain and three
loops on your crochet hook. Chain stitch again and draw up your yarn
bringing it through each of the three finished loops on the hook, and
the finish, working a half-double stitch into your pattern.
In the second row, continue to zigzag on the right side. Chain stitch 3
times to complete the start double crochet. Double crochet your first
stitch and chain one time, and double crochet three clusters in the
following space. Repeat your steps starting across, and to the finish
working through the final space, adding one chain, two double crochets
in clusters and at the crown of your turning chain, and then turn.
Moving to row three, chain stitch twice for your first half double.
Skip the starting stitch and half double, one chain, and another half
double followed by space and repeat your steps across, and to the
finish, completing with a half double in your crown section of the
turning chain, and then turn.
Adding Zigzag to Row 4:
Row 4 you will chain stitch three times for your first double, skip the
initial stitch and cluster three doubles in the following space. Chain
another stitch across, and to the final working a double crochet into
the crown of your turning chain, and then turn. Moving to row, five add
two chain stitches to the first half double. Half double another stitch
into the first stitch, half-double, first chain, half double, and into
the following space. Repeat your steps across, and to the finish
working two, half doubles into the crown of your turning chain, and
then turn. Complete your steps by repeating the second through five
You have completed the zigzag lozenge stitching steps. Now you can move
to the sample squares, which sums up eighteen rows. Once you complete
the steps, you can move onto the borders, and finally finishing your
Afghan. Once you finish however, you will need to edge the pattern to
finally finishing your Afghan.
Remember when you design an Afghan, particularly the Evening News; you
will need to work through a seven ½-inch gauge. When you start your
pattern, keep texture and colors in mind. We encourage you to visit the
Internet to learn more about the Evening News Afghan and the patterns
available to you. In the period in-between, we can continue learning
how to sample your squares.
