The ruled lattice stitch is a series of straight lines (rows of single crochet stitches) which alternate with rows of Vs. It is not a difficult pattern but you must be able to recognize the stitches and therefore I recommend it for those stitchers with some experience. Most of the stitches in this pattern are single crochet and chain stitches.

Materials and Supplies

Any weight yarn with the appropriate size crochet hook. Our sample was made using worsted weight yarn and a size H (5.0 mm) crochet hook.

ch = chain
dc = double crochet
rep = repeat
sc = single crochet
sk = skip
sp = space
st(s) = stitch (es)
tch = turning chain
