When I recently went to Michael’s Craft Store and picked up some Caron Bakes Cakes, I knew right away what I wanted to try out with it. I always loved making the chevron aka ripple stitch, but never tried it out with any of the Caron Cakes. So, when I bought some Caron Baby Cakes, I had to try it using the Chevron stitch using single crochets.
And it work out great and looks really pretty. The colors and the stitch together look very elegant and darling. You absolutely have to try any of the Caron Cakes with the Chevron stitch, especially with the single crochet.
If you have never tried the Chevron or Ripple Stitch, I will explain how to crochet it step by step and also provide many photos and a video at the end if you are more of a visual learner.
So, let’s get right to it and show you have to create this delicate stitch. I used a different color yarn for the tutorial itself to better visualize it as the Caron Baby Cakes are very light in color.
Chevron aka Ripple Stitch Tutorial:
1. Make a chain of a multiple of 11 plus 2, then place 2 sc in the 2nd ch from the hook
2. Next, crochet 1 sc in the next 4 chains
3. Then skip the next 2 chains, crochet 1 sc in the next 4 chains, and then in the next chain, place 3 sc in the same st
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until the end of the row, in the last chain, place 2 sc, ch 1, turn
5. Crochet 2 sc in the first st
6. Crochet 1 sc in the next 4 sts
7. Skip the next 2 sts and crochet 1 sc in the next 4 sts
8. In the next st, crochet 3 sc in the same st
9. Repeat steps 6 thru 8 until the end of the row, place 2 sc in the last st, ch 1, turn
10. Repeat steps 5 thru 9 until the desired length is achieved.
In case the above picture and written tutorial for the chevron stitch using single crochets was too hard to understand, I have a video version of it below.
