Interlocking block stitch stripes...

Interlocking block st. of 2dc 2 ch will give you a fantastic striped stitch. Change the colour combination and you can get  multi coloured blocks, checks or stripes simply by changing the colour.

Remember this little bag...
How to do Interlocking block stitch here...
for stripes just change colour every row and the stripes will appear just like that

It has been a really popular post so I thought I would add a few more colour/yarn combos

Stripes in Noro and Colinette are.....
Alternate rows of two different colours or yarns will give you some lovely stripes
 a random dyes yarn and almost a plain colour
every row a different colour would give a multi coloured block effect like the little bag and
2rows in one colour and a third in another will give a block  spot effect same as doing moss stitch.

It's a stitch that can be done with all sorts of combinations...2, 3, or 4 dc and ch sts, they all work to give different sizes of blocks....an easy and fun stitch to play with in many different colour combo's.
And make a fabulously firm stitch for cushions and bags in particular.

Have fun x

    1. Hi..thanks i mixed the two random dyed Noro's together to start with and moss st. but didn't like it so split them up and added a plainer yarn to each of the random dye Noro..works far better.
      Thanks x
