Crochet Weave?

I came across this picture in Aging Successfully, Fall 2009 (Vol. XIX, No. 2) Newsletter.

For those of us who love needle work the article, Zola, is also a sweet read (p. 15-16).

I love the look of this simply beautiful stitch.

Does anyone know its name? How do you do it?

I am going to ask the author of the article, Barb Tackitt, if she knows any more about this stitch. I will keep you posted.

UPDATE: (2009-DEC-14) With help from other Crocheters on Ravelry I think we have a solution. This is a picture of a woven fabric. The needle artist is adding an sc crocheted edge. It feels good to have a solution, but I am so unhappy that it was not a crochet solution.

Other thoughts were, basketweave stitch, X-stitch, and Woven Stitch.

That is beautiful, yet simple. I, too, was hoping for a crochet solution. Any good patterns for a newborn tunic-style dress? (They must be simple, too.)

Hi, when I saw your post I liked this pattern too. Im not sure if you found an answer since then but if you or anyone is interested, I wrote the magazine that published it and this is the response I recieved:

My mother used to crochet and I think she called that pattern Railroad. But I don't crochet and I suspect the name is an old one. It may have a more modern name now.

If you did find out what the stitch is, please share! I'll do some more research and see if I can dig something up.

I am sorry. But, this is a knit stitch called the WICKER PATTERN and it is a very easy stitch.

Here is a link to one of my capes that I have knitted with this pattern on the colar area,

If you need to ask me questions about this pattern please convo me though ETSY

Thank you

That looks an awful lot like Tunisian Crocheting.

I've done this stitch before and I love it. This is actually knitting, not crochet. The pattern "Cross Stitch Scarf" is from 101 Designer One Skein Wonders. Here's another image:

Hope this helps.

This is actually a loom woven piece. She is casting off the edges. I make squares to join together like this. Google potholder loom weaving and you will see images just like this.

Well as a weaver, knitter and crocheter. I am going to have to say that is crocheting the edge of a woven piece. very common edging technique used for triangle shawls such as the ones made on these looms http://www.hillcreekfiberstudio.com/

Hi.
I found this page / crochet stitch which might easily be adapted to look similar to this knitted wicker stitch (see Polly's comment): http://domihobby.ru/451-obemnyy-pletenyy-uzor-kryuchkom.html Although it's in Russian, it has very easy to understand photos of the stitch.
I'll try to simplify it, by doing 2 stitches instead of three, as it suggests. If I manage it, I'll send you a photo of the results.
All the best, and thanks for your blog!
Wendy

I know this is an old post, but I just found it on pinterest. I think either way it is adding an edging, but I think it could easily be Tunisian crochet, aka afghan stitch, or woven. It's amazing how much Tunisian crochet looks like weaving. I saw one comment suggest it could be Tunisian and wanted to back them up. :)

Wendy said...

Found this, which looks exactly as the photograph.

I don't know if you are still looking for this stitch, but there is a new weave stitch going around pinterest... it's knitting so it's probably not the same, but here it is!

Hi, I believe there is a crochet version of this stitch named "Bean Stitch" http://freevintagecrochet.com/how-to-crochet/bean-stitch

It's not exactly the same as the knitted version however it is very, very close :)
