Watch how to crochet the spatter pattern stitch (video and written instructions)

The spatter pattern stitch creates an intriguing interlocking pattern, which looks like spokes radiating outwards, spider webs or even, of course, liquid spraying from a central point. It's a delicate yet structured pattern which would be ideal for blankets or throws.
This pattern is suitable for intermediate level crocheters and only involves three stitches - chains, single crochet and double crochet, so you'll be speeding through projects with it.

You can use any yarn for the spatter pattern stitch, though be aware that the pattern could start to look clumsy if you choose a very chunky weight. The pattern would look nice and delicate in a fingering weight yarn, for a summer shawl, or a DK weight would produce a pleasingly warm blanket. Check your manufacturer's band for hook size suggestions. You will also need a pair of scissors and a tapestry needle for weaving in ends.
