How to Create Woven Crochet?
Do any of you know how do a woven crochet pattern?
I don't mean a basket weave stitch.

Please check out the picture here:
Aging Successfully, Fall 2009.
The article is Zora, and the picture is on the bottom of page 16.

I will appreciate any help you can give me. This pattern is driving me crazy

Thanks,
Ruth

I've heard about this before, but didn't get a chance to try it yet. Good luck...

I think we have the answer.

It is a woven fabric to which someone is adding an sc chain border.

I am so happy to have the solution, but I wish it was a crochet solution!

Thanks for your consideration.
Ruth

I don't think this is exactly what you're looking for, but another way to have "woven" crochet is to crochet in a mesh pattern (like filet crochet), and then weave yarn in and out between the meshes. I've seen afghans and scarves done like that.

Hope this helps.

Wasn't there some way to imitate woven stitches with crochet? I thought there was. Well then, my bad.

I can't download the magazine to see it. There's a way to crochet with two (or more) different yarns, each in filet mesh, so they're woven through each other but are both crocheted, not woven after the fact. It makes a thick, fluffy, very light fabric. Could that be it? If so, I might know how. I have an afghan that I bought as a kit years ago. It had the instructions with it, and James Walters did a tutorial on the technique.

Oh blueygh2! Thanks so much for linking to my woven stitch! I've actually been thinking of adding a video tutorial to that post so it can be seen in action! I love this stitch and use it often, in fact I'm using it right now for a project using Boucle yarn which is notoriously difficult to work with. Using the woven stitch makes it usable!

As for a crochet stitch that uses two colors and looks like they are woven together, I actually have a pattern for a stitch like that which I have used for both baby blankets and also for one super huge full size afghan. I'll put it on my list of things-to-do and see if I can get a little tutorial up and share the stitch with you. Might not be what the original writer was looking for, but something to add to our list of crochet stitches!

how to create woven crochet?
Hi, when I saw your post I liked this pattern too. Im not sure if you found an answer or if you are on here anymore but if anyone is interested, I wrote the magazine that published it and this is the response I recieved:

My mother used to crochet and I think she called that pattern Railroad. But I don't crochet and I suspect the name is an old one. It may have a more modern name now.

--Nina Tumosa

So, im off to do some more research and will let you know if I find anything.
