Gorgeous Crochet Stitches
- The Mixed Cluster by Daisy Farm Crafts would be gorgeous in a baby afghan.
- The Harlequin Stitch reminds me of Kings, Queens, Castles and adventures. Great for a scrap blanket! I love the way that Daisy Farm Crafts used rainbow colors to show off this fun stitch!
- I love how an easy combination of double crochet stitches, single crochet stitches and post stitches can make for amazing texture! I combined these 2 fun stitches in my Onward and Upward scrap afghan project.
- I love the puffy goodness of this braided stitch by Crochet Beja. I’m thinking placemats. Or even a small coaster. Or a bag even. Beautiful!
- This Tulip Stitch Baby Blanket features one of my favorite stitches of all time! This crochet stitch naturally forms a scallop border on the edge. Mindless crochet with 2 skeins of inexpensive Ombre yarn for an easy baby blanket? Yup.. count me in!
- Here’s another stitch with a beautiful scallop edge. Check out this Iris Stitch by the Unraveled Mitten.
- The Larksfoot Stitch is one of my favorites. I love how the pattern makes for a perfect scrap afghan. The Happy Lark Scrap Afghan in jewel tones speaks to my soul!
- This variation of the Alpine Stitch by Bellacococrochet is beautiful. Note that this stitch tutorial is in UK terms. You can find a conversion chart for US to UK Crochet terms here.
- My friend Jessica over at Stitching Together used a variation of the Diamond Lattice stitch to make this sweet Diamond Lace Blanket for her little boy. Isn’t it lovely?
- The Arrow Stitch by the Crochet Crowd is one that makes me just want to reach right through the photo and give that bit of crochet goodness a big ole squishy squeeze! Sigh. So many things I could make with this stitch.. a cozy hat.. maybe a pillow..all the possibilities!
- All the lines and texture in this Cluster Stitch by Hopeful Honey makes me feel organized in some weird way. Like I have my crochet life in order or something. Maybe that’s just me… This sweet stitch would be great in a scarf.
- The Sedge Stitch makes an easy crochet baby afghan. Can you say mindless crochet while watching Netflix? LOVE that! It would also look great in a large afghan, scarf or pillow.
- Oh why oh why is there a stitch called the waffle stitch? Now I’m ready for breakfast. Again. Sigh. Here’s a great tutorial by Heart Hook Home.
- I love the tweedy look of the Herringbone Half Double Crochet Stitch. If I’m going to be completely honest, it’s not my favorite stitch to make. That tiny little change between a regular half double crochet and a Herringbone HDC slows my roll a little. But I’m willing to sacrifice for the craft, because this is one beautiful stitch!
- The crocodile stitch always makes me think simultaneously of Peter Pan (ya know his ‘hook’ incident) AND a mermaid. It makes me both want to get IN the water AND stay out! I know. I’m weird. But this crocodile stitch tutorial by Bhooked Crochet is awesome!
- This Side Saddle Stitch by Make and Do Crew intrigues me so much. It immediately makes me want to pull out my hook and a big skein of yarn to crochet something amazing. Maybe a baptism worthy baby blanket or a cozy shawl or throw… So many possibilities.
- I love an easy stitch with a lot of texture like this Silt Stitch. It’s great for a nubby little dishcloth but would also work up great as a single stitch pattern baby afghan or throw.
This bean stitch by Nicki at Nicki’s Homemade Crafts has me thinking all sorts of cozy thoughts. A fall squishy hat for days you need to keep your head warm, but maybe don’t need the full on winter garb. I could also see it in an afghan or scarf too.
- This Crochet Box Stitch by Crochet News has had me intrigued for so long. I love that tumbling block vibe and how the color diamonds attach to the previous round. Delicious. Just delicious. This would be great as a scrap afghan or as a way to show off colors. It’s a showstopper really.
- The Berry Stitch has been on my ‘to make’ list for far too long. I really like how Katie at Salty Pearl Crochet has worked it into a fun washcloth. Definitely going on my ‘make list’ soon.
- The Balanced Shell stitch by Heather at The Unraveled Mitten is one of my favorites. I love that it works as a beautiful pattern on its own–maybe as a lacy scarf or shawl. But I also love that you could totally just put that as a border on an otherwise dull blanket to kick it up a notch! Gorgeous.
- Oh the Elizabeth Stitch. I don’t know what I love more… her beautiful NAME or her lovely LOOKS! This great tutorial by Dabbles and Babbles shows you every detail to making your own beautifulness.
- The crochet crunch stitch by Stitching Together has great texture! This is another stitch pattern that’s known by more than one name..but any way you say it, it’s a beauty! Love that bumpy goodness.
- This rice stitch by Heart Hook Home is totally calling my name. What is it saying, you ask? Why it wants to be a dishcloth! Or maybe a hat. Or both. I totally just want to squish it and squeeze it forever.
- I don’t know why, but I think the bead stitch might just be the funnest stitch to make. Maybe ever. I love working AROUND a stitch to make that puffy goodness. Be sure to check out how I used this great stitch in a project!
- The Diamond stitch by Hopeful Honey reminds me of a pillow my grandmother might have had on her couch. You know the squishy comfortable kind that make you want to stretch right out and take a nap. Sigh. I love this.
- The Star Stitch is a gorgeous textured stitch that looks complicated, but is actually really easy once you learn how. I can’t wait to use this in all kinds of projects!
- In truth, anything by Lucy at Attic 24 is sure to bring a smile to my day. This granny stripe stitch blanket doesn’t disappoint. It is easy and fun and perfect for scraps!
- Blanket Stitch. Yes. Seriously. Someone actually named this one the Blanket Stitch! This great tutorial by Mama in a Stitch is going have you thinking all sorts of blanket thoughts. I see so many great possibilities with this stitch. It would look great in a solid color or an ombre. It would also make a great scarf. Fun!
- The linen stitch is another stitch with an identity crisis. You might know it by another name. Me? I know it as the stitch my grandmother used for scrap afghans. She’d make oodles of squares and when she ran out of yarn, she’d make a square with whatever colors she had—matching or not! Then she’s crochet them all into one amazingly warm bit of goodness. Love that!
- Did this Waistcoat stitch aka the knit stitch by Make and Do Crew fool you into thinking it was NOT crochet? This little stitch gets its amazing effect by one simple change in where you work a single crochet. Amazing, right?
- The Harvest Stitch by Dessert Blossom Crafts is another beautiful textured stitch. I really love those puff stitches!
