Crochet Stitches

Once you have mastered the basic stitches, the world of crochet is your oyster. Start with the simple slip and chain stitches, then move on to double crochet, half trebles, trebles, double trebles and onward. Sometimes you'll be working a whole project in the same stitch, whereas other makes might involve combining stitches to create a particular pattern or shape. Don't forget that UK and US stitch abbreviations are different. The patterns on this website are written using UK abbreviations.
