To work the Griddle Stitch, you start with a multiple of 2 sts, with 2 more for the base chain. You can, of course, use any size yarn and the appropriate hook. For this tutorial I used Lion Brand Vanna's Choice and a Furls Fiberarts US-I, 5.5mm hook.
In this example, I'm starting with a foundation chain of 12 - that's 2 multiplied by 5, plus 2. To start the first row, skip the first 3 chains - those will count as the first dc st. Then work 1 sc into the next ch, then dc into the next ch. Continue alternating between sc and dc until you end the row with a sc in the last ch. Turn.
For row 2, you'll ch 3 (once again, this counts as the first dc), and then sc in the next ch, and then dc in the ch after that. Continue to alternate as before, ending with a sc st in the top of the ch 3 that started the previous row.
And then... repeat row 2 until you're done! That's all there is to is - alternating dc and sc sts, with the dc sts worked into sc sts, and the sc sts worked into dc sts. You could start the row with sc and end with dc if you prefer. And you can work the Griddle Stitch in the round too if you like - just as long as you have an even number of stitches to work with.
I hope you've enjoyed this tutorial! The Griddle Stitch is easy enough for beginners, and it creates a fantastic texture too. In fact, this stitch pattern makes up the back of the Pampering Massage Soap Saver! Now for the chart!
