My Interlocking 'v' stitch from March 2014...

Back in 2013, i bought a book about interlocking stitches, they are quite complicated to do and if you know me i don't do complicated. After studying the book for some time i developed an interlocking stitch using 'v' stitch and granny shells...nice and easy.

I also tried out different combinations of the stitch over the following years, 'v' stitch and sc, mixing aran and chunky, dc and aran and its been copied several times and called all sorts but this is a stitch i created originally.


This is the original picture from March 2014 when i first published this stitch 
US Terms always used.


Several Versions followed over the years..






 above is done with 'v'stitch and sc..just a hint of colour
 This is a cotton version.... with a different colour for each granny shell row

and a space dyed yarn version

 mixing aran and marble chunky yarn..by using a thicker yarn for the granny shells they blackberry effect pops a bit more

 A bag in interlocking 'v' stitch...


 more sc versions, mixing cotton and wool yarns together...a more subtle colour addition

 I also did a number of patterns in the pattern club in 2016 cowls and cushion..brilliant stitch for a cushion..less stretch

An amazing new baby Grandson born the beginning of August has turned my life upside down. 

I was not expecting the emotional turmoil of becoming a Grandma for the first time. Oliver is now a month old and already trying to hold up his head doing mini push ups and looking around at the new world he has entered...growing so fast.

 Proud new Grandma Sue and gorgeous Oliver already around 10lbs in weight and growing so, so fast.
His beautiful and proud Mommy couldn't be a better dil, a gold star of a young lady.
My son has found his calling..the best Daddy in the world, hard to get a look in when he's around lol.
 Love them all to bits xx
