Stitch: Simple Subtle Texture

I don’t have a photo of my sample yet, but wanted to jot it down quick and make a quick diagram before I forget what I did on the edges…nice texture for a dishcloth or maybe a throw.  I have seen this before, so not my invention.  Might be an interesting scarf with a bulky yarn…

Used worsted weight and H hook, I might like a larger hook with it for a throw, it is a bit looser.

(since this was quickly jotted down, can not attest to it’s accuracy)

ch an even number (so you end up with an odd number of stitches).
1 – sc in 2nd ch from hook, {dc in next st, sc in next st} continue across, ending with sc in last.  ch 3 (counts as dc), turn.
2 – sc in top of 2nd st, dc in next across, {sc in next st, dc in next} across.  ending with dc. ch1, turn.
3 – sc in first st, repeating row 1
4 – repeat row 2
and so on….

added 8/13/15:  Doing the same thing but replacing the dc’s with trc’s gives a more dramatic texture.
