8 Simple Crochet Stitch Tutorials

  1. Chain Stitch and Single Crochet: This is the most basic, beginner crochet stitch. You'll need to learn this simple crochet stitch before learning the more advanced stitches in crochet.
     
  2. Double Crochet Stitch: Again, this is another fundamental stitch in crochet. Learn how to do this simple stitch today with this easy photo tutorial. 
     
  3. Basketweave Stitch: Follow this great tutorial to learn how to crochet this dense stitch. Also known as the waffle stitch, it has an interesting texture that is similar to a woven basket. In order to make the basketweave stitch, you will need to know the chain stitch and the double crochet stitch.
     
  4. Cable Stitch: This is a classic crochet stitch that creates a pretty, cabled effect. Learn how to crochet this crochet stitch in only eight steps. This is an easy crochet tutorial for you to follow and only four stitches are needed to do the cable stitch.
     
  5. Checkerboard Stitch: This stitch is quite possibly the coolest looking stitch in crochet. It works great for crochet afghans and baby blankets. Learn how to crochet the checkerboard stitch with this step-by-step guide.
     
  6. Half Double Crochet Stitch: The half double crochet is a bit of a combination of the single crochet and double crochet stitch. It is similar to the single crochet stitch in that is produces a pretty tight fabric.
     
  7. Popcorn Stitch: No, popcorn is not just for the movie theaters! This is another neat looking stitch in crochet that looks more difficult than it really is. All you do is make a cluster of double crochet stitches in the same stitch. Learn how to crochet this fun stitch with this step-by-step tutorial.
     
  8. Tunisian Stitch: Unless you have a traditional Tunisian crochet hook, which is a very long handled crochet hook, the Tunisian crochet is really only practical for making smaller items, such as wallets, headbands, belts, and other small items which don’t require more than a dozen stitches across the row.
