Friends, meet the Crochet Rope Stitch! Do you love it as much as I do? (And isn’t this color yummy?) It has so much body. It would look great in a scarf, shawl and all kinds of other great crochet projects!Are you having fun learning new crochet stitches with me? I love how we can take basic stitches we already know and get a whole new look by combining those stitches in a different way!
If you can double crochet and chain you can handle rope stitch crochet! So easy and yet so beautiful! Im dreaming of a summer shawl worked in a lovely yarn.. maybe one of those hand dyed skeins that keeps calling my name! Sigh.
A word about stitch names… some stitches have multiple names. Some crocheters also call this a V-stitch. Other crocheters crochet their V-stitch without the chain in between the 2 double crochet stitches. I am treating them as 2 different stitches, but will note this in both posts.

Rope Stitch Crochet Tutorial
This lacey texture is so easy. It’s a perfect step up for a beginner. All you need to know is how to double crochet and chain. Two simple stitches, one amazing design!
- Any size hook. I used US G6/4 mm crochet hook (Check out my favorite hooks here)
- A yarn weight that works with your hook size. I used worsted weight yarn.
- tapestry needle and scissors
Remember, you can make your swatch with any size hook and yarn weight. Read all about How to Swatch Here.
