On A Quest: What is This?

This week I am calling on all of you for a favor. I really need help. I used this particular stitch about 3 years ago to make a bag for my yoga mat. At the time, I was new to Pinterest and Pinterest would not save websites if they did not contain a “pin-able image.” I have no idea where I found the stitch pattern, what it was called or who created it. I know I can figure out the pattern by looking at my existing piece, but that will not allow me to credit the creator, or see if they allowed items created from it to be sold, etc. I have spent several hours over the last month or two trying to find the website or even just a name for the stitch because I really do like it and would like to use it for items in my store. If you have ever seen it before, know what it is called, or who created it, please let me know! For those of you who have crochet blogs, if you have no idea either, if you would be willing to reblog this post to help me find it, I would be extremely grateful!

One last question for today: what is your favorite yarn for making a lightweight blanket? I am planning a Corner to Corner Graphgan for my son and I am looking for cooler yarns that still come in a wide variety of colors. What is your go to yarn?

 

Thank you for any help, suggestions or reblogs!

  1. That is a lovely stitch pattern. I think it’s fantastic that you want to find the designer to give credit, but I wouldn’t let it stop me from selling my makes. I don’t understand why anyone would release a free pattern and then say ‘oh you can’t sell anything made with this pattern’ that just seems rude and ridiculous to me. The way I see it many crochet patterns are like recipes – you can’t throw a chicken, water and rice in a pot and say you invented chicken soup. That’s just my opinion – again it’s great to want to credit the person that originally came up with this specific stitch pattern but whatever you make using it is all YOUR design. You would never worry about selling something you made using a Pineapple stitch pattern or a Fans or Shells stitch pattern so I think this it the same kind of thing. đŸ˜€

  2. I just now came across this and dug out my “Crochet Stitch Dictionary” by Sarah Hazell and while I didn’t find this stitch, I found a few that look similar. There are mesh stitches which create regular square gaps, and then there are some lattice stitches that it more closely resembles: Triangle Mesh, Ruled Lattice, Double Lattice, and Zig-Zag Double String Network are on pages 144-145 if you get a chance to check it out.
    I googled “double Lattice stitch and came up with a bunch of totally different stitches, but this is the one in my book and the link below is to a “how to” video. You could see if it looks familiar.

    That’s all I’ve got. I’ll print a copy of the stitch and take it to work and ask a couple of co-workers who might have an idea on how to find it. We also have other stitch books with more stitches we can compare it to.
    I’ll let you know if I turn up anything.

      1. So maybe Lattice is in the ballpark.Your stitch has a mirror image thing going on. I hope you figure it out. It would make a nice lightweight summer shawl.

        PS – three years is kind of a long time, but I have found forgotten websites by looking at the history on my browser. You may not even have the same computer and I don’t know if it saves for 3 years, but for shorter time periods it’s worth a try. I’ve tracked down a few recipes I regretted not pinning by looking at my history. I’ve used the “search history” feature by typing in what I think was part of the web address.
