Crochet Stitch: Flying Birds {crochet pattern, stitch}

Hello Again!  I'm back today with yet another new stitch for you to try out, and this one is called the Flying Birds stitch.  I call it that because if executed correctly, it forms upside-down V's that look like flying birds!

Copyright 2010-2012 LiLu Studios: This Crafting Life, by Lori Steffens. {http://www.thiscraftinglife.com/} Make it, Wear it, Love it, but above all, Share it, don't Sell it!

Begin with a foundation chain by chaining 30.
Row 1: Sc in second chain from hook, *ch 1, sk next ch, sc* repeat to end, turn.
Row 2: ch2, hdc in next st, *ch1, hdc dec* to end, turn.
Row 3: ch1, *sc, ch1, sk next st* repeat to end, turn

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until your design is finished.

How to make the hdc dec:
 YO, insert hook into same st as last st (will be either hdc or hdc dec depending on where you are in the row), YO, pull through, YO and pull through two loops (will leave 2 loops on hook), then sk next st, YO, insert hook into next st, YO, pull through, YO and pull through all four loops on hook.

Note- In row 2, the stitches are worked into the ch 1 spaces, and in Row 3, the sc's are worked in the top of the hdc dec's.

  1. I just so happened to get an unexpected package of yarn today in the mail and then I found this pattern. Your instructions are so simple and to the point, and its such a nice pattern to work with. I love it so far! I'm only on my 4th row but I think this will be an infinity scarf.
    Thanks for the great stitch pattern!
