Infinity Crochet by Briana K©

The cable design on this swatch is worked in a new and innovative crochet method developed by Briana Kepner, which creates clean and beautiful stitching, Infinity Crochet.

All of the post stitches are ‘floated’ on a single crochet background, and no single crochet stitches are skipped. This allows the cable design to be raised further from the background than with traditional raised stitches, as well as maintaining an undisturbed gauge in the main fabric.

Follow the new exclusive Infinity Crochet by Briana K© process by reading the techniques in the Special Stitches section below.

Special Stitches

4-st LC (4-st left cross)
This group of sts counts as 4 sc and 6 floating sts.
Worked as follows: sk3fs, FF3TR around next floating sts, sc in each of next 4 sc, working over floating sts just created FF3TR around skipped floating st.

4-st RC (4-st right cross)
This group of sts counts as 4 sc and 6 floating sts.
Worked as follows: sk3fs, FF3TR around next floating sts, sc in each of next 4 sc, working under floating sts just created FF3TR around skipped floating st.

CC (closing curve)
Completed CC counts as 1 sc and no floating sts.
Worked as follows: sk3fs, FFDC around 4th floating st stopping with 2 loops on hook, FFDC around 3rd skipped floating st stopping with 2 loops on the hook, FFDC around 5th floating st stopping with 2 loops on hook, FFDC around 2nd skipped floating st stopping with 2 loops on hook, FFDC around 6th floating st. stopping with 2 loops on hook, FFDC around 1st floating st. stopping with 2 loops on hook, insert hook into next sc and pull up a loop, yo and pull through all loops on hook.

FF3DC (front float double crochet)
Yo, insert hook from front-to back-to-front around post of first floating st (or next available floating st, if no st is indicated) and pull up a loop, [yo and draw through 2 loops] twice. Repeat steps for 2nd and 3rd floating sts

FF3TR (front float treble crochet)
Yo twice, insert hook from front-to back-to-front around post of first floating st (or next available floating st, if no st is indicated) and pull up a loop, [yo and draw through 2 loops] 3 times. Repeat steps for 2nd and 3rd floating sts

OC (opening curve)
This group of sts counts as 4 sc and 6 floating sts.
Worked as follows: Skip 2 sc, FF3TR around next sc 1 row below, sc in each of 2 skipped sc and in each of next 2 sc, FF3TR around the base of each stitch in the FF3TR just made, starting with the 3rd floating stitch. *tip, rotating your work when completing the OC is helpful

Notes on the Infinity Crochet Symbol Swatch

  • The chain at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
  • Some rounds will increase in stitch count due to floating stitches and then decrease again on the next round.
  • If the cables pull in too much and the fabric does not lay flat, simply add one yarn over to each floating stitch.
  • If the cables are too loose, take away one yarn over from each floating stitch.

I have never seen anyone crochet the way you hold the yarn in your left hand fingers. Is there an origin of that method? I love your creativity. What an amazing gift you have - and you are!! Funny how I love learning - not necessarily actually doing. I am, however, going to give your Macchiato hat - love the look and the detail. For sure, I'm a novice crocheter - about 20 chevron ripple afghans and now enthralled with you and the Seafarer's Cap by Beth Hall.

Nice to meet you! I think I might hold the yarn this way because it carries over from a way knitters might hold their yarn lol. I've always told people to just go with what's comfortable for the best tension. :)

Brilliant! I am so tickled as to have found this method for the cabling stitches in crochet. Next up, The Traveling Vine Shawl. Thank you! Penny
