Hi all,

I hope someone can help me out here. When I went to Japan, I bought several Japanese crochet books. Seen as they always include a chart I thought that the language difference wouldn't be a problem. The project I'm doing right now, though, has a stitch in it that I have never seen before and that I have not found on any stitch-overview-lists yet. It's the lowest one on the first picture: It looks like a half-double crochet with 2 chains, between two normal single crochets. I've also included a photo of it in the pattern itself.





Anyone know the name of the stitch, or perhaps even how to make it?

According to Google Translate it says:

"Knitting information, to see the SI chain stitch, put only on the small side the medium-and-long-braided"

...hope that helps?

That's the clearest translation I've seen so far! I tried looking it up kanji by kanji, but my grammar isn't good enough. Google gave me "Ju in knitting knitted twin-lens thin braided chain stitch I put the fine knitting knitting", which wasn't very helpful. Tongue Unfortunately, your translation also isn't clear enough to replicate the stitch.

@ alwaysinmyroom: That would be great! Below is a photo of what the finished work should look like.




Edit: After googling "braided chain stitch crochet" I found a website that might be quite close to what I'm looking for! The blue one is made with a half-double crochet and 2 chains, and it seems to create a circular shape similar to the one in the above picture.
