Crochet Stitch Patterns


Our crochet stitch patterns section is different than our regular crochet pattern section. Crochet stitch patterns teach you how to crochet using a particular stitch pattern such as the popcorn stitch, ripple stitch and shell stitches. They are not patterns for a finished item. These commonly used stitches are used to create a variety of items such as hats, afghans, scarves etc.


This section is not intended to teach you how to crochet but to give you patterns and combination ideas to help you create your own beautiful works. It is also a great place to see what all the basic stitches look like. Bookmark this page for future reference!
