Special Stitch

FPSLST: Front Post Slip Stitch

Insert hook around the next post from the front of the piece, pull up a loop and through the loop on the hook.


This project starts at the bottom, flat edge and is worked back and forth in rows.

1. With an H hook, ch 39, sc in the 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. (38sts)

2. Ch 1, turn, sc in the same st and in each st across.

3. Repeat previous row for an additional 6 rows.

4. Fold the piece in half lengthwise (bottom photo below). Ch 1, turn, working through both layers, sc in each st across. (38sts)

5. This is the first row of loops. Ch 1, turn, *FPSLST around the next post (see “special stitch”), ch 10*, repeat until 2 sts remain, FPSLST around each of the next 2 sts.

6. Ch 1, turn, sc in each st to end of row. Note: This row is worked into the sts at the top of the posts from the previous row/step.

7. This is the second row of loops. Ch 1, turn, *FPSLST around the next post), ch 10*, repeat until 2 sts remain, FPSLST around each of the next 2 sts.

8. This is the third row of loops and these sts are worked IN the stitch and not as post sts. Ch 1, turn, sl st in the same st, sl st in the next st, *ch 8, sl st in the next st*, repeat until 2 sts remain, sl st in each of the next 2 sts.

Extra row

This step is optional. Continue to step 9 if you choose to skip this row.

Ch 1, turn. Fold back the last two rows of loops. This step is worked between these two layers to add fullness.

Sl st in the first st, *ch 8, sl st in the st at the base of the loop*, repeat until last loop. Ch 8, sl st in the st at the base of the last loop, ch 8, sl st in the st after the last loop, sl st in the last st.

9. Finish off, leaving approximately 18” of yarn. Fold the piece to match the short ends. With a yarn needle, use the yarn tail to sew the layers together next to the first row of loops for approximately 2” (see photo below right). This keeps the ends together and will help keep the duster from slipping off of the handle.
