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 crochet blog post that I’ll be posting each month. I’ll be highlighting certain crochet stitches every month that I think are worth learning.

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

Over the last few weeks, I’ve shared some crochet projects with you that incorporate the Elizabeth stitch along with some detailed stitch pictures. The first project I shared was the Easy Elizabeth Stitch Fingerless Gloves. Following that we did the Elizabeth Stitch Crochet Hat Pattern and finally the Elizabeth Stitch Boot Cuffs.

While there are many different crochet stitches I love, 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). This is also one of the easy crochet stitches compared to others out there. Which is why I chose it for this crochet tutorial.

If you look in the crochet stitches tutorial, you’ll see that the stitch is 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. This is the perfect crochet tutorial for beginners.

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.
