This is another pattern for the Twilight Crafts Black & Red Swap.  While the pattern itself is very easy, working on it is a bit tedious.  It’s well worth the patience to get the awesome pattern that works up as you go.

  • Color A – Black (worsted weight)
  • Color B – Red (worsted weight)
  • Size H Hook
  • Gauge – 4dc = approximately 1″, 2 rows = 1″

Special Note: The pattern is achieved by changing colors at the top of every dc across.  At the end of rows, continue to change colors at the to of ch 3 (i.e. ch 2, change color for third ch).

Throughout the pattern, you will be working across the strand of yarn that you are not using.  This means you’ll only have ends to weave in at the beginning and end.    See the illustrations in BD Chessboard for examples on how to do this.

Because of the way this pattern is worked, you’ll want to pay special attention to your two strand of yarn so they don’t get too twisted.

With Color A, ch 22

Row 1:  dc in 4th ch from hook, change color at top of dc, (dc in next ch, change color at top of dc) across

Row 2: ch 2, change color, (dc in next ch, change color at top of dc) across

Repeat pattern for Rows  3-12, always working across the color not on the hook, finish off.
