Summer Crochet Stitches Easy to Intermediate

My latest quick crochet is not a novel new stitch, but rather a simple pattern made from the most basic stitches.  This stitch can be mastered by beginners and added upon for intermediate to advanced crocheters.

Done in mutiples of 4 plus 1, start off with a chain of 13 for a pattern. 

Sc in 2nd ch from hook, ch 5, sk 3, sc in next ch.  Repeat till the end of row, ending with a sc

Row 2:  ch 5, sc in next ch loop, repeat till end. 

This pattern is lacy, quick and airy.  I've made a few garments by using this pattern and adding flowers and leaves to embelish.

Happy Hooking!  Kim
