How to Crochet the Crystal Stitch

Do you love learning new stitches?? I love the feeling of learning something new that I get to apply to my craft and use to create anything I want! Since I love that so much, I decided that I want to start doing a series this year called Stitching Saturdays, where I have a new crochet tutorial that I release every Saturday. I’ll do stitches that I enjoy doing, have learned, or have even created myself!

This week’s stitch is the Crystal Stitch, which is a stitch pattern that I created to make my Ocean Crystals Cowl. It’s a fairly simple stitch that uses chain stitches and double crochets to create the affect of crystals being grouped together. Very similar to the stitches used for granny squares, this stitch is very easy to pick up rather quickly. Let’s get started!

Pin it for later!

Supplies needed:
