Arcade Stitch

Love. We all have moments where we instantly fall in love. A mocha at the new coffee shop. A colorway that was just released. Someone’s Instagram page. These moments are so magical. You feel like you have found a little piece of yourself somewhere out in the world.
One of these moments for me was when I saw the Arcade stitch. So freaking gorgeous. It reminds me of a childhood waiting for the weekend to head to the beach.
It’s a beautiful stitch that should be added to everything.

Let’s get stitchin!

This is stitch can be used with any weight of yarn and it’s recommended hook.

The base chain will be multiples of 6 plus 2. For this tutorial we will be using a base chain of 24.
The pattern is made of the base chain, the set up row, and 4 repeating pattern rows.
