Learn this Easy Textural Crochet Stitch Tutorial + Video


easy crochet stitch

I'm naming this easy crochet stitch The Crochet Ripples Stitch, because of the textural ripples in the fabric made by this stitch. This stitch is comprised of single crochets, double crochets, and front post single crochets. We will also be creating and working into chain 3 spaces. I consider this crochet stitch EASY, but not great for absolute beginners. Follow along with the written pattern below or the concise VIDEO TUTORIAL if you're a visual learner!



How Does The Crochet Ripples Crochet Stitch Work?

This stitch is comprised of clusters of 3 double crochets, chain 3 spaces, and front post single crochets. The clusters of 3 double crochets are always worked into the chain 3 spaces. The front post single crochet is responsible for the texture of this stitch. It sort of pins the fabric down, and makes the fabric around it puff out, almost like buttons on a mattress.

Is This An Easy Crochet Stitch?

Yes! While some may not be familiar with the front post single crochet, it is easy to learn and the pattern for the Crochet Ripples Stitch is very repetitive. The Crochet Ripples Stitch is a one row repeat pattern, and the repeat within that one row is rather short. In other words, you will have this stitch memorized very quickly with no need to refer back to the pattern!


Crochet Ripples Stitch Pattern
