What kind of stitch?

Does someone know what this stitch is called? I want to make the bag, but make it a bit wider and shorter so I want to know if I need a certain stitch count or something.

Thanks!

I looked at the link and it says it’s called ‘bauble stitch’. I don’t do crochet but I think it should be fairly easy to change the bag dimensions.

Can’t find anything about it though. I’m a beginner so I am not certain how to modify things :slight_smile: I also find the pattern not so beginner-friendly and a tad confusing.
I guess I’ll just find another bag pattern similar to this stitch.

I found it on Ravelry which has a link that will take you to the pattern. It’s written for dk yarn; using worsted with the appropriate hook would make it larger. If it would be enough wider then do fewer row repeats to make it shorter. I see V stitch and bauble mentioned. I’ve not had enough coffee to try figuring out the multiple. Maybe someone else is awake enough to do it.

If you only did knitting, I know I’ve seen a really similar knit stitch! And it would probably be easier to work out the stitch count. Ah well, lol.

I’d look at the pattern again later, but I just find her way of writing the pattern a bit confusing. I’m thinking of making a wider base since I’m intending to use it as a beach bag. Ive found tutorials on how to make a base (oval, square, etc), but I guess my main problem is how to transition to the bauble pattern after I’ve reached the size that I want for the base.

I had coffee and woke up enough to realize there is a chart. Duh.
It looks like a multiple of 6 to me. If I started and was off by a stitch or two I’d I’d do an increase or decrease to compensate and keep on hooking.

Welcome to the knitting help forum.
Glad you provided tha name of the pattern and a link.

Begin Bauble Pattern:
(also, see chart)
Rnd 1: Ch 5 (counts as dc, ch-2), dc in same
dc that was used to join previous rnd (first V-
st completed), *sk 4 dc, V-st in next dc; rep
from * around, sl st into third ch of beg ch-5
to join—26 V-sts.

First the repeat is 5 stitches and is repeated 26 times for a round of 130 sts.

Thanks! Just to confirm, the V-stitch is this part: Ch 5 (counts as dc, ch-2), dc in same
dc that was used to join previous rnd ?

Just for the first v stitch. Then skip 4 DC and DC in next st. Ch 2 DC in the same stitch. Repeat 24 more times. Sl stitch to 3rd chain of the first stitch to join round.o
