The Elizabeth Stitch – Easy Crochet Tutorial

| Crochet

The Elizabeth stitch is absolutely beautiful in my opinion - it's an easy stitch to crochet and once you get going, you'll be able to do it in your sleep.Crochet Stitch of the Month – The Elizabeth Stitch

I’m really excited this week to share a new type of blog post that I’ll be posting each month – the crochet stitch of the month. 

One of my favorite things about crocheting is learning new stitches and figuring out how I can implement them in my patterns. I’m always on the search for lovely but easy stitches, just like the Elizabeth stitch.

Over the next couple of months, I’ll be sharing some crochet projects with you that incorporate the Elizabeth stitch – starting with our first project, Easy Elizabeth Stitch Fingerless Gloves.

The Elizabeth stitch is absolutely beautiful in my opinion. From my research, I’ve also heard this referred to as the Mini Bean stitch (but I think the Elizabeth stitch sounds a little more refined and chic – befitting this gorgeous stitch). It’s sweet, elegant and has a gentle criss-cross look to it. I also love the slightly bumpy texture. More importantly, it’s a really fun and easy stitch to work up and once you get going, you’ll be able to do it in your sleep.

Elizabeth Stitch

Start by chaining multiples of 2 + 4 to the desired length.

Row 1: Insert your hook into the 4th chain from the hook and pull up a loop, yarn over, back into the same stitch and pull up another loop, yarn over and pull through all four loops on the hook. *ch1, skip 1 ch, insert your hook into next stitch, pull up a loop, yarn over, back into the same stitch and pull up another loop, yarn over and pull through all four loops on the hook. Rep from * until the end of the row, turn.

Row 2: ch 3, *insert your hook into first ch 1 space, pull up a loop, yarn over and back into same space, pull up another loop, yarn over and pull through all four loops on the hook, ch 1; repeat from * across the entire row with the last stitch being worked under the turning chain, turn.

Continue Row 2 until you have reached the desired length for your project.
