Starter SuperBrick Stitch

The SuperBrick Stitch is simply the Brick Stitch with one additional strand thrown into the mix. This is the square version of the CorkScrew Stitch! You'll need 3 strands of scoubidou of one length, and a fourth strand approximately one and a half times the length of one of the shorter strands.

Before you begin, you'll need to FIND THE CENTERS of the four strands...

 

 

 

 

 

After finding the centers of our four starting strands...

Start by laying the three shorter strands ON TOP OF and ACROSS the longer strand, which should be facing away from and towards you...

Take the end of the longer strand that faces you and bring it UP and OVER to create the first loop...

Now take the long strand that faces away from you and bring it UP and OVER towards you to create the second loop...

There are SIX weaves, instead of FOUR, as in standard Brick. Take the short strand that is FARTHEST away from you and bring it UP and OVER the loop closest to it, then UNDER the loop farthest from it...

...and pull it through.

Now take the next farthest strand from you, which should be on the other side of the stitch, and bring it UP and OVER the loop nearest it, then UNDER the loop farthest from it...

...and pull it through. You've just completed a Square Stitch; but let's continue...

Similar to the way you started the stitch, take the third strand, which should be on the same side you started the stitch on, and bring it UP and OVER the first loop, then UNDER the second...

...you know what to do, right? Pull it on through!

Take the fourth strand, and bring it UP and OVER the first loop, then UNDER the second loop...

...and pull it through. You've just made a Brick stitch! Now for the SuperBrick...

Grab the fifth strand and do the same; over the nearest loop, then under the farthest loop...

...to be pulled through, like this.

Almost done! Take the last strand, the sixth one, and put it over the near, under the far...

...and pull it on home! Take a good look at this stitch, as it's nothing more than THREE Square stitches!

Now begin to pull this stitch tight...

...all tight! There's the basic SuperBrick Starter stitch!
