When thinking about creating a new crochet pattern, I came across the Samurai Crochet Relief Stitch on a Russian website (darievna.ru). This stitch is also known as the Cable Stitch to some crocheters.
It is not just for experienced crocheters, but also easy to learn for beginners. All you need to know is how to crochet a chain and how to crochet double crochets.
So let’s get started and show and teach you how to do this beautiful stitch. I do have a video below on how to do this stitch from the start, in case the pictures are not enough.
- Make a chain of multiples of 4 plus 3 (examples: 12+3, 16+3, etc) -> the last chain of 3 counts as a dc
- sk st (which is chain number 4 from the hook), place 1 dc in the next 3 stitches
- yo, from the back go insert the hook into the skipped stitch, yo, pull thru the yarn (be sure to keep the tension not too loose, but also not too tide) you now have 3 loops on the hook), finish it like a normal dc (yo, pull thru 2, yo, pull thru 2)
- repeat from step 2, until the end of the row, 1 dc in the last chain, turn
- ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), sk st, place 1 dc in the next 3 stitches
- yo, from the back go insert the hook into the skipped stitch, yo, pull thru the yarn, finish it like a normal dc
- repeat from step 5, until the end of the row, 1 dc in the last chain, turn
- repeat steps 5 thru 7 until you are done with your pattern
