Are you ready to learn new crochet stitch patterns? Join the new Striking Stitches CAL! During the next 2 weeks, I’ll be sharing a new crochet stitch pattern every other day.
No time right now? Pin these crochet stitch patterns for later.
*This post contains affiliate links (only for products I love, use and spend my own money on obviously). This means I earn some yarn money if you make a purchase through one of these links (of course at no extra cost for you!), which I promise to use to create more awesome patterns like this one. All opinions are my own. See my full disclosure here.
The stitches range from simple crochet stitches to crochet stitches for blankets, lacey crochet stitches and unique crochet stitches. Each crochet stitch pattern will include step-by-step instructions and detailed pictures and explanations to make sure they all become easy crochet stitches for everyone!
The crochet stitch patterns are written for 15 cm x 15 cm / 6 x 6″ squares. Each stitch will also have stitch repeat instructions so you can easily use it in your own projects!
Crochet Stitch Patterns Bundle
All crochet stitch tutorials will be available on the blog but if you want a printable PDF version for easy recording and to take notes etc. You can grab the bundle with all 8 stitch tutorials here.
Sometimes it’s just easier to have a stitch dictionary on hand when you’re deciding on your next project rather than having to search online and remember where you saved that crochet stitch you want to use.
Or if you just want to get a head start and not wait for the daily stitches to be released ;).
Join the Crochet-A-Long (CAL)
What’s a CAL?
Simply put, a crochet a long is an event where we’ll all be working on the same project. Designers usually release the pattern/tutorial in phases and you can all share your progress and ask questions. This can be a specific pattern or in this case a series of new stitch patterns.
The purpose is to learn, exchange tips and tricks, hold yourself accountable and most importantly have fun!
From Monday, August 23rd to Sunday, September 6th, I’ll share a new crochet stitch every other day. This gives everyone a chance to catch up on off days. Feel free to take it at your own pace though, we’re all here to have a fun learning experience!
I will be posting all the new tutorial links on this page, make sure you bookmark or pin it for easy reference.
Don’t miss a Stitch
Make sure you don’t miss any of the stitches by joining my email list below. I’ll send you a short email anytime a new stitch is released.
Hang Out with Us
The Make with Yarn Facebook group is where you can share your stitches and ask questions. I will be hanging out in there every day to help you out and cheer you along.
If Instagram is more your thing, I’d love to see your stitches over there too! Tag me @knittingwithchopsticks and/or use #strikingstitchCAL. I’m excited to see all your stitches!
What Will you Need?
All crochet stitch patterns are designed with worsted weight WeCrochet Dishie yarn. You can of course substitute with any yarn when you want to use these stitches in your own projects, but for learning I highly recommend Dishie.
It has some amazing characteristics for learning:
- It has great stitch definition. Which means you’ll see your stitches, where to insert your hook and how the stitches are coming together much better.
- It doesn’t split easily so you won’t have to fight with it for that and you can focus 100% of your attention on the new stitches.
- It’s super affordable
- Added bonus: It comes in 30 colorways, I’m sure you’ll find what you need.
While a lot of the stitches feature only one color, some are multicolor and use up to 3 colors.
You’ll need following hook sizes:
- 5.5 mm / US I– 9 hook.
- 5 mm / US H – 8 hook
And a tapestry needle to weave in your ends.
What to Make with Your Swatches
You’ll be learning a new stitch every day and making a 15 cm x 15 cm / 6 x 6″ square but what to do with all those little squares?
Make them all with the same yarn and you can easily assemble them into a fun project. Here are some ideas:
- Baby blanket
- Pillow cover
If you plan to use your swatches make sure you check your gauge and meet the stitch pattern’s gauge so all your squares end up the same size!
