Hey everyone! In today’s Crochet 101 lesson, I’m going to teach you how to make the woven stitch. This is a beginner-friendly stitch using two basic crochet stitches: the single crochet and the chain stitch. The woven stitch is one of those stitches that require little thinking once you get the hang of it. You are basically working in the chain spaces rather than in the stitches themselves. The end result looks beautiful!
For today’s tutorial, you will need worsted weight yarn (I’m using Red Heart Super Saver) and a size I-9 crochet hook (I’m using Clover Amour). I recommend using a solid color in order to see the stitch definition more clearly. Gather up your supplies and let’s begin!
To begin, you will need to make an even numbered chain. For the purposes of this tutorial, I will be making a chain of 20.
Next, you will make a single crochet into the 2nd chain from the hook.
*Chain 1 and skip the next chain. Make a single crochet into the following chain. Repeat this process from * until you reach the end of the row. You should end the row with a single crochet in the last chain. Chain 1 and turn.
Make *1 single crochet in the chain 1 space from the previous row.
Chain 1. Repeat from * until you reach the end of your row. Single crochet into the last chain 1 space. Chain 1 and turn.
That’s how to make the woven stitch! Repeat that last row over and over again to practice. This is such a simple stitch that I’m positive you will fall in love with it just like I did! If you’re interested in making a pattern using the woven stitch, I recommend this easy baby blanket pattern.
