The Seed Stitch Tutorial


The seed stitch is an easy stitch to learn and creates a strong fabric. It is a great stitch for dish cloths, bags, blankets and projects that need durability.

Before learning this stitch you will need to have mastered the single crochet (Single Crochet) and the chain stitch The Chain Stitch). If this is the case with you then let’s get started. All you will need is a ball of yarn and a crochet hook.

Seed Stitch Tutorial:

I started with a foundation row of 9 single crochets.  This will count for row one.

Row 2:


Step 1: Single crochet in first stitch. (pictured above)


Step 2: ch 1 (pictured above)


Step 3: Skip the next stitch and single crochet in the stitch. (Crochet this pattern across to the last single crochet). This should give you five single crochet and five chain one spaces.  (pictured above)

Row 3:  

Step 1: Chain 1, turn your work


Step 2: Single crochet in the first single crochet and the chain one space.  (pictured above)
Step 3: Chain 1,  (pictured above)


Step 4: Skip the next stitch and Single crochet in next chain one space, chain 1, (pictured above)

Repeat across to last 2 single crochet, skip next single crochet, single in last single crochet.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until desire length.

Congratulations, you have just completed the pattern for the seed stitch.

You can see now how easy this pattern was to learn, and how pretty it looks. Would love to hear how you like it.

Until next week, keep those hooks flying.



About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.
