Hello everyone and happy 2019!!!

I hope ya’ll had a fantastic 2018 — to kick things off I am starting the new year with a tutorial on the Crunch Stitch.

The Crunch Stitch will leave you with a gorgeous finished piece. It’s a great stitch for blankets and scarves. This looks like a complex stitch, but it is actually very beginner friendly!

Notes:

  • This stitch is worked in multiples of 2 + 1

Abbreviations:

  • ST(s) – Stitch(s)
  • CH(s) – Chain(s)
  • SL ST – Slip Stitch
  • HDC – Half Double Crochet

Pattern instructions:

  • Create your foundation chain. For this tutorial, I chained 12 +1 = 13
  • Row 1: Skip the first 2 CHs. In the 3rd CH, *work a SL ST. 1 HDC in the next stitch. Repeat from the * until you have reached the end of your first row. In the very last CH work a SL ST. Turn your work and CH 2.
The first row completed
  • Row 2:*SL ST into the next HDC. 1 HDC into the next SL ST. Repeat from * until you reach the end of the row. SL ST into the turning CH. Turn your work and CH 2.
The second row completed

Repeat Row 2 until you have reached your desired length and that’s it!

One of the big perks about this stitch is that it’s reversible. Which makes it a perfect stitch for blankets, shawls, scarves you name it. Because both sides of your work will come out looking beautiful.
