This Jagged Scrap yarn afghan is made using a stitch I discovered while playing around with yarn. I don’t know why all my discovered stitches mostly use two stitches to create and this one is no different. Lol.

 

But other than the butterfly stitch this one is surely the most easiest one to recreate! Let me take you step by step on how to make this stitch so you can use it in making your own scrap yarn afghan to use up some of your left over wool.

For this project you will need:

HOOK: 5 mm hook or size H hook for the US

YARN: All the scrap yarn colors were worsted weight yarn

4 ply US, 10 ply AU

 

Also the Off white color I used in between as well. I was able to get 10 rows of Off white before I had to change to a new skein.

I used 2 and a 1/2 skeins of it, but I didn’t make a border. If you wish to, then I would grab a third. I didn’t want to use much of this color because it’s a scrap yarn afghan and don’t want you to have to go get more yarn.

About the color pattern

Since this pattern uses scrap yarn, I won’t be telling you which colors to use. I used this color wheel to help me organize my color choices.

 

I’ve never been a fan of the mixed color of scrap yarn afghans so I decided to do mine in a more organized fashion starting with my Maroons, Reds, Oranges, Browns, Yellows, Golds, Greens, Blues, Purples, Pinks and back to the beginning of the color list.

Feel free to go with what feels right to you.

To start:

Ch 171 or multiples of 2 + 1

 

 

 

Row 1 With First Color (This is a prep row for the Jagged stitch)

Dc in 3rd ch from hook, DC in all chains (170 sts)

Ch 2 and turn

 

 

 

Row 2 – With First Color

Our first stitch will be our Special Stitch – Jagged Crochet Stitch

Another tip before you get started. You will always start your Jagged Crochet stitch row by grabbing the second DC post of the row. You will grab it up as though you are making a FPDC.

 

Never use the 1st DC of the row to make your 1st Jagged crochet stitch of your row.

 

 

*YO and grab the post of the next DC, (If it’s the beginning of the row, you will grab the second post of the row)

YO and only pull through 2 sts leaving your last loop on the hook.

then moving over to the next DC, WITHOUT a YO,

insert your hook into the next DC and pull up a loop,

YO and pull through 2, YO and pull through 2 just like a

normal DC at that point.

Then Chain One This is very important! *

 

 

IMPORTANT TIP

Skip the next DC post because you used this stitch for the second part of your Jagged Stitch. Remember this stitch takes TWO stitches to complete. You’ll always be using every other DC post on your row.

Repeat this for the whole row.

Ch 2 and turn

 

 

 

 

Row 3 – With second Color

this is a prep row. To change colors I left the last two loops on my ending DC on my hook and finished the DC. Then I chained two with my new color.

The ch 2 counts as your first stitch.

This is how you’ll crochet your DC’s after a row of Jagged sts

First you come up to the ch 1 space of the stitch (remember the Jagged crochet stitch uses 2 sts)

*grab up the FLO of the 1st ch 1 st and DC ,

then DC in the next st as normal, go under both loops.*

repeat this for the entire row. (170 sts)

CH 2 and turn.

 

 

 

 

Row 4 – With second Color Jagged st row

So with your Prep row of DC’s finished you can start your Jagged crochet stitches for the row.

*YO and grab the post of the next DC, (If it’s the beginning of the row, you will grab the second post of the row)

YO and only pull through 2 sts leaving your last loop on the hook.

then moving over to the next DC, WITHOUT a YO,

insert your hook into the next DC and pull up a loop,

YO and pull through 2, YO and pull through 2 just like a

normal DC at that point.

Then Chain One – This is very important! *

Repeat this for the whole row.

Row 5 – Now use your Off White color

After you have 2 full complete rows of the Jagged stitch I would switch to my Off white color to create a row in between my colors. To help them POP but not only that, this will also make your next set of Jagged crochet stitches be reverse so that you’re showing the BACK of the stitch.

 

*Grab up the FLO of the 1st ch 1 st and DC. Then DC in next st going under both loops of the stitch. *

Just like you did before. 170 sts total.

 

 

 

Row 6 – With NEW color

You’ll be crocheting in your DC’s as normal this row.

The beg ch 2 DOES NOT count as a st this row so you will be using the first DC of the row.

*DC in 1st DC. DC in all sts.* 170 sts.

 

 

 

Row 7 – With same color as last row

*YO and grab the post of the next DC, (If it’s the beginning of the row, you will grab the second post of the row)

YO and only pull through 2 sts leaving your last loop on the hook.

then moving over to the next DC, WITHOUT a YO,

insert your hook into the next DC and pull up a loop,

YO and pull through 2, YO and pull through 2 just like a

normal DC at that point.

Then Chain One This is very important! *

 

 

IMPORTANT TIP

Skip” the next DC POST because you used this DC for your Jagged Stitch remember this stitch takes 2 sts. You’ll always be using every other DC post of your row when beginning your next Jagged st.

Repeat this for the whole row.

Repeat rows 3 – 7

 

 

 

TIPS

Be sure to count your stitches every so often to stay consistent.

You will know you’re off a stitch if the first part of your Jagged crochet stitch is not done on a DC that was done using both loops of the stitch Last row.

In other words, remember the DC you put in the FLO of your stitch?

Well take a look and you’ll see it sticks back a bit and the DC’s that you crocheted in BOTH loops of the DC from last row are more full and even stick out a bit more. This is the stitch I am referring to when I say the first part of your Jagged crochet stitch should begin on one of those stitches that stick out.
