Identify a stitch pattern?
Hi everyone, I'm new here and very glad to have found this forum. I've been lurking around a bit this morning, and there seems to be lots of knowledge here.

I have a question about a pattern. My daughter is in love with this afghan, but it is coming undone. I was hoping that I can identify the pattern or stitch... whatever it's called, and recreate it.

Here are some pictures. If you can't tell from the pics, maybe I can try to take a better one.

I should say, that the type of yarn is almost rope-like, as it's not as fuzzy as yarn, it's tighter and more dense. The afghan is very heavy for its size.

Thank you for your help,

Kerri

That's crocheted, but I don't do much in that craft, so couldn't say which stitch is used.

Thanks so much for the quick reply. See how much I know... can't tell the difference between crocheting and knitting.

Do you say it's crocheting because the type of yarn, or the stitching? The material is very soft, and smaller than your typical yarn... but like I say, kind of heavy. I think that is the reason she likes it so much, is the weight of it makes it very comfy.

I just noticed there is a crocheting thread here. Is there a way that I can post in that section, and refer them to this thread? Maybe copy/paste the url to the crocheting section?

Yes, you can do that, or just repost in the Crochet Forum.

It's crochet because of the stitch, both knit and crochet can use the same kind of yarn. It was probably a thinner baby/fingering yarn and crochet sts are a little bulkier than knit ones with the same kind of yarn.

That's funny that you mention 'baby'. She was baby when she received the blanket, and is now 5 yrs old. Still takes it everywhere, even on a very short car ride

Does baby/fingering, mean for a baby stitch? ha ha.

I did repost it at the crocheting thread... doesn't seem to be as much traffic there as knitting.

It's a thinner yarn to make lighter weight baby clothes with and is usually in pastel or 'baby' colors. It's also the same weight as sock yarn.

Give it a day or so, it's slower on the weekends so not as many people might be online right now.

the closest I can guess is single crochet, chain 1, single crochet, chain 1, etc. Then the next row is the same thing, with the single crochets lining up on top of each other. it's not quite right, but maybe close enough.

then the outside edge looks something like chain 5or 6, single crochet in the chain space of the row below, repeat.

Hm looks like shells to me.
Maybe two or three dc's hooked off together. (followed by chain x)

The edge seems to be chain x, sc as base, and sc on top of that.

(Sc, ch 1, sc, sk 2 ch) across got it for me. It's the sc version of a v-stitch.
Not sure about the edging, though.
