Week 36 of The 50 Stitches crochet along features the Harvest stitch. This stitch creates a beautiful pattern of columns of puff stitches. This would be a great stitch to add detail to jumpers or cushions.

You can find the links for all the squares in the crochet along here. The free pattern is below, but if you’d like the ad free printable version, it is available either as part of my Lifetime Pattern Pass, or you can purchase it on its own for £5 from Ravelry

This pattern is written in US terms, but the UK translation is below.

Double crochet (dc) = Treble crochet

The Pattern

For this square you will need a 4.5mm hook

Start by making a foundation chain of 31

Row 1. In the 3rd chain from your hook make a sc (the turning chain counts as a stitch) sc in each chain across – 30 stitches

Turn

Row 2. Chain 1 and make the  alternate turning chain in the first stitch. Dc in the next stitch *skip 2 stitches, and make a puff stitch (yarn over and insert your hook into the stitch. Yarn over and pull up a loop 3 times until you have 7 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through 6 loops on your hook, yarn over and pull through the last 2 loops) 

puff stitch

Chain 2 and make a puff stitch in the same stitch.

make the puff, chain 2, puff all in the same stitch

Skip 2 stitches and make a dc in the next 2 stitches*

Repeat between *and* You will only have 26 stitches in this row.

Turn

Row 3. Chain 1 and make the alternate turning chain in the first stitch. Dc in the next stitch. *In the chain space between the puff stitches in the row below make (puff stitch, chain 2, puff stitch). Make a dc in each of the dc stitches*

Repeat between *and* – 26 stitches

Turn

Rows 4 – 10. Repeat row 3

Turn

Row 11. Chain 1 and single crochet in the first stitch. Sc in the next stitch and in the top of the puff stitch. *Make 3 sc in the chain space, sc in the top of the puff stitch and in each dc* repeat between *and* – 30 stitches

The Border

Sc in each stitch along the top and bottom. 

For the sides, make 3 sc in the sides of each dc row, make 2 sc in the side of row 11 and 1 sc in the side of row 1.

You should have 30 sc down each side, plus an extra stitch in each corner for the turn. This will make your stitch count as 32 stitches across each side and 124 stitches total (remember the extra stitch corner stitch is counted in the stitch count for both sides)

You have now finished your square and join and you can tie off and weave in the ends

You can now add the interlocking border, joining this weeks square to last weeks as you join. You can see how to do this here
