BUS AT CAL Square 15: FLAT TRAMLINES.
The new stitch used is the LINKED double treble. It makes it grow very fast and is a nice flexible flat fabric as a result of the way it is worked.
It will be abbreviated to LDTr.
With 6 mm hook chain 17 and then change to the 5 mm hook and chain 4.
Row 1: first stitch of the row: insert hook into 2nd ch from hook and pull up a loop ( 2 loops on hook)
insert hook into 3rd ch from hook and pull up a loop ( 3 loops on hook), insert hook into 4th ch from hook and pull up a loop( 4 loops on hook), now yarn over and pull through 2 loops at a time , three times, first LDTr made.
For the next LDTr and every next LDTr in the row you use the horizontal strands that have now appeared on the LDTr worked.
See Photo where 2 pins indicate the loops where the hook is inserted before pulling up a loop.
Inserting hook under second loop on previous LDTr.
After yo and pulling up a loop.
then yo and pull up loop: there will be 4 loops on hook.
Repeat across the row until 18 LDTr completed.
Row 2: ch 1 and work a dc into each of the 18 sts., turn.
Row 3 is as row 1, the first stitch however is slightly different: ch 3 and use the 2nd and 3rd ch for the start of the loop collecting, then insert into the stitch at the base of the chains and use that to collect the 4th loop, then finish the LDTr as before, the next LDTr are all worked as described above with photos in row 1.
Repeat row 2 and 3 until the square measures 15 cm, ending on a dc row.
