Scoubidou Square Stitch

Although not necessarily the easiest Scoubidou stitch, the square stitch is definitely one of the most important. Many other scooby string stitches require that you use the square's starter stitch to start them and the completion stitch to finish them. Therefore I would recommend that you attempt to master the square stitch before anything else in the world of Scoobies.

You will need:

  • Two strands of scoubidou the same length.
  • To find the centres of both strands
  • Tip: Use contrasting colour Scooby Strings so you don't get confused!

    Starting Stitch

    1. Find the centres of the two scooby strings and cross one over the other. 2. Pinch the cross so you have a free hand to begin the first loop. 3. Take the underneath strand (red) and flip it away from you over the other strand (blue) to create a loop.

    4. Take the other end of this scoubidou (red) and flip it towards you over the blue strand to make a second loop. 5. Take the right side of the blue scoubidou and take it over the first loop then under the second (like a weave). 6. Then take the left side of the blue scooby and pass it over the loop nearest to it and under the second.

    7. Try to keep the fingers on one hand pinched at the centre to secure it as it is fiddly! It should look a bit like this. 8. Grab the two left strands with your left hand and the two right strands with your right and pull very tight. 9. The stitch should look something like this when you've pull it tight.

    10. If you turn the stitch over there should be a loop going from one side to the other (red in my case). And thats the starting stitch!

    11. Again, take the right side of the red scooby strand and flip it away from you over the blue strand to create another loop. 12. Then take the left side and flip it towards you over the blue strand to make a second loop. 13. Take the right side of the blue scoubidou and take it over the first loop then under the second.

    14. Then again, take the left side of the blue scoobidou and pass it over the loop nearest to it and under the second. 15. Grab the two left strands with your left hand and the two right strands with your right and again pull very tight. 16. Until the scooby strings are securely welded together.

    17. There you have another stitch completed! 18. This is how the project should look after doing about an inch or so of stitching. 19. And this is how it should look after a lot more stitches!
    Completion Stitch

    20. Make another square stitch however leave it loose this time. 21. Grab any one of your four strands and take it under the strand to its left then up through the centre of the loose stitch. 22. Do this with all four strands (be careful with the last one) so they are all going in the valign="top" same direction.

    23. Pull the strands very tight, each one individually of you need to. 24. Until you are left with a secure knot that wont unravel! 25. Snip the strands with a pair of scissors about 1/2 an inch away from the completion knot.
