The multiples of this stitch are 3 + 2
THIS PATTERN IS DIFFERENT FROM THE TUTORIALS. It’s been updated to be easier to understand.
ch in multiples of 3 and when you have the size desired ch 1.
Dc in 3rd st and in all sts. Count your stitches here lets pretend you have 21 dc’s when you end this row.
ch 3 (this will count as your first stitch) then DC into the 2nd st of the row.
Now working on the post of the stitch from the previous row, do your Embossed Pocket Stitch (EPS), * then skip 2 sts and sl st into 3rd.
Now using the post of the DC you just slipped stitched into, work a EPS onto the post. * Repeat for the rest of the row where you will be finishing your EPS by slip stitching into the last DC of the row. Then sl st in the ending ch 3 space.
Ch 3, The beginning ch 3 counts as the first st of the row. Working in the back row behind the pockets (not the front row with all the pockets) First DC into the next sl st then *DC in the two stitches behind the pocket, then the stitch in between where we slip stitched last row * repeat for row. To End your row: Your last 2 sts. You will DC in your last sl st and also DC in the bottom of the ch st, not the top. This keeps it folded down and the row even.
Count your stitches. This will be the same number as the first row of DCs. If you don’t have this number, it means you did something wrong, go back and look, turn your work over, the dc’s on the back should be lining up, if they aren’t then Rip out the row and start it again. You may have missed putting a DC in a slip stitch, they can be hard to see.
Back View – Stitches should be aligned
Ch 3, and DC on the 2nd Dc of the row. Work a EPS on the post of the next DC one row down like we did before. (This stitch should be the 1st DC of the 3 as shown in the picture below. 2 and 3 are the skipped stitches. If it helps you further, then the stitch you use is the DC you put your sl st in last row. ) Don’t worry if your first row looks strange, it’s normal, the rest of your rows will look fine.
Skip 2 sts, sl st into 3rd, Now using the post of the DC you just slipped stitched into, work a EPS onto the post. * Repeat for the rest of the row. End your row by sl stitching in the last 2 sts of the row.
Ch 3, and working in the back row (not the front row with all the pockets) *DC in in two sts behind the pocket, you have have to DC 2 into the same stitch because you only have one here, then DC in the stitch in between where we slip stitched last row * repeat for row. Dc into to slip st at end of row and in top of the ch 2. Now at the end of this row you should lose a stitch. So if you have 21 you will now have 20.
Ch only 2 this time, and on the 2nd dc of the row work a EPS. Skip 2 sts, sl st into 3rd, Now using the post of the DC you just slipped stitched into, work a EPS onto the post. * Repeat for the rest of the row where you will be finishing by skipping two stitches and ending the EPS by slip stitching into the top of the ch 3.
Ch 3, and working in the back row behind the pockets (not the front row with all the pockets) *DC in the two stitches behind the pocket, then the stitch in between where we slip stitched last row * repeat for row. Dc into to slip st at end of row and in top of the ch 3.
Repeat rows 6 and 7
