As a born and raised Californian, avocados are an essential part of my state’s culture. When it comes to food, everything that is done California style, always has some form of avocado on it! Since it’s such a big part of my everyday life, I started thinking about how I could translate it to crochet color work, and how it would make the perfect stitch pattern. I am so excited to share my brand new Avocado crochet stitch pattern! It’s a simple tapestry or intarsia crochet stitch patter, which uses single crochet stitches and bobbles to create a fun and summery crochet stitch.
Before we get to the Avocado stitch, if you’re new to crochet color work, I’ve got two great tutorials here on my blog to teach you! I know that crochet color work can seem really intimidating, but trust me, once you get started on it, you won’t want to stop! All it takes is learning how to change colors, and you can make whatever color work pattern you want.
Depending on how far apart your avocado stitches are, you can use either tapestry or intarsia crochet to make this stitch pattern. If your avocados are close together, then tapestry crochet is just the technique you’ll want to use. If they are more spread apart, then intarsia crochet will work better since you won’t carry the yarn. I have tutorials for both techniques here on my blog. For tapestry crochet, you can check out: The Beginner’s Guide to Tapestry Crochet. If you’d rather use intarsia crochet, you can find a tutorial for that at: The Beginner’s Guide to Intarsia Crochet.
I’ve also created a step by step video tutorial for this stitch pattern available on my Youtube Channel! You can find that tutorial at: Avocado Stitch Crochet Tutorial.
This crochet stitch pattern is a part of the Stitch Exploration Event with Joy of Motion, Knitting With Chopsticks, and I! Throughout the month of June, we have put together 30 crochet stitches, with one releasing each day. They are all designed to help you grow your crochet skills, and range from lace stitches, to simple, to color work ones!

Repeat 2-9 till your swatch reaches the desired length. I repeated those rows 1 more time to get the size of swatch pictured above.
Once your swatch reaches the desired length, fasten off and weave in the ends.
