CROCHET STITCH OF THE MONTH – THE ALIGNED COBBLE STITCH

Welcome to my monthly stitch of the month post. This month I’m featuring an easy crochet stitch called the Aligned Cobble Stitch.

I fell in love with this stitch for one reason…the texture. Isn’t it just divine! It has a lovely raised pebble sort of look to it and the symmetry in the pattern is great for all those people out there who like the clean and tidy look.

Not only does this stitch look amazing, the aligned cobble stitch is also ridiculously easy to crochet. It’s the perfect stitch for someone who’s new to crochet but looking for a little more adventure.

As long as you can single crochet and triple/treble crochet you can crochet this sweet little stitch.

Check out some of my patterns that use the Aligned Cobble Stitch including the Aligned Cobble Anytime Tote, the Aligned Cobble Stitch Fingerless Gloves and the Aligned Cobble Tea Towel Crochet Pattern.

The Cross-Over Block Stitch Crochet Tutorial

| Crochet

The cross-over block stitch is a really easy stitch to crochet - if you can chain, single and double crochet then you can crochet this awesome stitch.Crochet Stitch of the Month – The Cross-Over Block Stitch

Welcome to my monthly stitch of the month post. This month I’m featuring a stitch I call the “Cross-Over” Block Crochet Stitch.

Earlier this month I was looking for a stitch for an infinity scarf I was hoping to make (look for that pattern coming shortly). I came across a stitch called the Block stitch – I was looking for something super easy and this definitely fit the bill. But I wasn’t wowed by the look and I felt it could use a little somethin’ somethin’ to spruce it up. I decided that crossing-over the block might give it some extra flair and texture so I gave it a try. Yep, that’s all it needed. I was in LOVE!

Now, I’m not implying that I invented this stitch. I’m sure it’s already out there and everybody uses it but somehow I’ve missed it. So, if you know if this stitch exists and what it’s called please let me know.

The cross-over block stitch is a really easy stitch to crochet so fear not. If you can chain, single crochet and double crochet then you’ve already got all the crochet skills you need to make this awesome stitch.

It’s the perfect stitch to use when you want an easy crochet pattern to do while you’re watching Netflix or your kid’s soccer game.

Cross-Over Block Stitch

Start by chaining multiples of 3 + 2 to the desired length.

Row 1: Insert your hook into the 5th chain from the hook, dc in each chain until the end of the row. Turn.

Row 2: Ch3, then in between the 3rd and 4th dc (the dc under the ch DOES NOT count as the 1st dc), do 1sc, ch2, *skip 3 dc and do 1sc, ch2 between the dc from the previous row * rep until the end of the row, ending with a sc in the last dc. Turn.

Row 3: Ch3, 2dc into the ch space below, plus 1dc crossed-over to the sc at the bottom of the turning ch. *2dc into the next ch space, plus 1dc crossed back over (to the right) into the sc from the previous row*. Rep until the end of the row ending with an additional dc in the last ch space (no cross-over).

Continue Rows 2-3 until you have reached the desired length for your project.

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.
