Blo stands for “back loop only” and is a common crochet stitch. To work the stitch, you insert your hook into the back loop of the stitch only, yarn over and pull through (two loops on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops on hook. That’s it!
The blo stitch is often used in conjunction with the front loop only (flo) stitch to create texture and interest in a piece.
How to Crochet: Crocheting in Back Loops Only (BLO) Amigurumi
Blo stands for back loop only. When you work in the blo, you are working only in the back loop of the stitch. This creates a nice ridge on one side of your work.
Blo Crochet in the Round
Crocheting in the round is a great way to create beautiful, circular projects like afghans, hats, and more! But if you’ve never done it before, the process can seem a bit daunting. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you get started:
1. Start by creating a slip knot on your crochet hook. Then, insert the hook into the center of your yarn ball and pull up a loop.
2. Next, make sure that there are two loops on your hook (the loop from the yarn ball and the one you just made).
Then, yarn over and pull through both loops to create your first chain stitch.
3. Now you’ll want to continue making chain stitches until your work is about 6 inches long. Then, insert your hook into the first chain stitch (the one closest to the hook) and pull up a loop.
Make sure that there are now three loops on your hook.
4. Yarn over and pull through all three loops to complete your first double crochet stitch! Continue making double crochet stitches into each chain stitch around until you reach the end of the round.
When you get back to where you started, simply slip the stitch into the top of the first double-crochet stitch to join everything together.
5 . And that’s it!
What Do Blo And Flo Mean in Crochet?
BLO stands for back loop only, and Flo stands for front loop only. These are both common crochet stitches that create different textures in your work. When you crochet BLO, you will work only in the back loops of the stitch, creating a ridge effect.
When you crochet Flo, you will work only in the front loops of the stitch, creating a depression or “v” shape. These two stitches can be combined to create all sorts of interesting textures in your crocheted fabrics!
How Do You Count Single Crochet Blo Rows?
To count rows of single crochet when working in the back loop only, simply count each time you turn your work. The turning chain does not count as a stitch, so you’ll start counting at the second row.
Blo stands for back loop only and is a common crochet stitch. To work the blo stitch, you will insert your hook into the back loop of the next stitch and complete your crochet stitch as normal. The blo stitch creates a slightly different texture than other stitches and can be used to create unique patterns in your crocheting.
