How to crochet the “Knit” Waistcoat or Center Single Crochet (csc) Stitch Tutorial

Learn how to crochet a “knit” look stitch with this tutorial! Also called the Waistcoat or Center Single Crochet (csc) stitch.

Abbreviations:

ch = chain

sc = single crochet

csc = center single crochet

Notes:

This stitch needs to be worked loosely. I recommend going up at least 1 hook size from the recommended hook size for the yarn you choose. The yarn I am using recommends a size 8 mm hook and I am using a 9 mm hook.

When working row by row I do not recommend working a chain 1 at the beginning of each row. Since you are only growing by approximately a 1/2 stitch each row you really don’t need to chain 1 at the beginning. This will make your ends look cleaner without the bulk from the chain 1.

Stitch is worked with any number of chains + 1 for the foundation chain.

Sample = 20 chains

Instructions for working Waistcoat Crochet Stitch or Center Single Crochet Stitch row by row.

Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch to end. Turn.

Row 2: csc in each st to end. Turn.

Continue repeating row 2 to size desired in pattern.

In the round tutorial:

Sample: 20 chains

Round 1: Without twisting chain, sc in 1st chain made and in each ch to end.

Round 2: csc in 1st st of previous round and in each st around.

Continue repeating round 2 to size desired in pattern.
