The SuperBrick Stitch

     Also referred to as "Wall", the SuperBrick Stitch is nothing more than THREE Square Stitches side by side. To start this stitch, you'll need four strands of scoubidou, three of the same length, and a fourth that is approximately 1½ times as long as one of the first three. For me, I can get almost two inches of superbrick when my shorter strands are three feet long each.

      First, FIND THE CENTERS of the three short strands...

      Next, FIND THE CENTER of the longer strand...

      Using the centers, create a STARTER SUPERBRICK STITCH before continuing...


Hold a "starter superbrick stitch" as shown.

Bring the far strand UP and OVER towards you to form the first loop...

Now take the near strand UP and OVER away from you to form the second LOOP, next to the first.

Start the WEAVE by taking the short strand farthest from you UP and OVER the nearest loop, then UNDER the farthest loop...

...and pull it all the way through.

The second strand comes UP and OVER from the other side, then UNDER the far loop...

...and is pulled through as well.

Here we go again, this time with the third strand, which should be of a different color this time. UP and OVER the first loop, then UNDER the second loop...

...and pull through, yet again!

Fourth strand goes up and over the near, then under the far loop...

...if you did it right, it should look something like this.

Almost done! Take the fifth strand, of the 3rd color, up and over the first, then under the second loop...

This SHOULD be getting easy for you now! Pull it on through!

Last strand... You know what to do, right?!?

...and after we've pulled it through!

Double check all your weaves before you start pulling! See how we have nothing but THREE SQUARE stitches here...

Pull all the strands tight...

...repeat the above, and it should begin to look like this...

...and here it is from the side!

Continue working the SuperBrick Stitch until the SHORTEST working strand you have is between 3½ and 4 inches long, then do a SUPERBRICK COMPLETION STITCH to finish off the project.

A SuperBrick Stitch Project, properly completed!
