Brick Crochet Stitch Tutorials
This stitch looks the best in 2 different colors so you can actually see the bricks or tiles. But you can easily use more or fewer colors. Furthermore, you can also expand or condense the bricks.
I go very detailed into that in the video tutorial below. So even if you prefer just using the photos to gain more knowledge, I would highly recommend watching the video as well. It is short and will give you all the details about the brick crochet stitch.
So, let’s get right into how to crochet the Brick Stitch which looks best in brown yarn, but to make it easier to see for the tutorial I am showing it below in green yarn.

How to crochet the Brick Crochet Stitch Pattern
Row 1 of the Crochet Brick Stitch
This stitch is made with a multiple of 8 stitches. In row 1, crochet 1 sc in each st, starting from the 2nd ch from the hook. During the last stitch be sure to change colors on the last pull-through. Be aware that the turning chain is not counted as a stitch, so place the first stitch in the same stitch as the turning chain.
Row 2 and 3
For Rows 2 and 3 do the following: Ch 1, *1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc in the next 3 sts, 1 hdc, 1 sc, sk 1 st, ch 1, repeat from * until the end, always finishing with the sc, not the [sk 1 st, ch 1]. During the last stitch in row 3 change colors again to the previous color.
Row 4 of the Brick Stitch
For Row 4, do the following: ch 1, 1 sc in the next 7 sts, 1 dc into the skipped stitch 3 rows below, repeat from * finishing with a single crochet, not the double crochet. For Row 5, ch 1, 1 sc in each st, changing colors during the last stitch to the previous color.
Row 6 and 7
We are now shifting the “bricks” of the brick crochet stitch over. So do the following for Rows 6 and 7: ch 2, 1 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc, sk 1 st, ch 1, *1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc in the next 3 sts, 1 hdc, 1 sc, sk 1 st, ch 1, repeat from * until the last 3 stitches where you do the following: 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc. During the last stitch in row 7 change colors again to the previous color.
Row 8 and 9
For Row 8, ch1, place 1 sc in the next 3 stitches, 1 dc into the skipped stitch 3 rows below, then place *1 sc in the next 7 stitches, repeat from * until the last 3 stitches, where you place 1 sc in the next 3 stitches.
In Row 9, ch 1, 1 sc in each stitch. During the last stitch in row 9 change colors again to the previous color. You will now repeat rows 2 through 9 until you reached the desired length you need.

What to use this stitch for?
The brick crochet stitch is a very versatile stitch combination. What makes it even better is that it is a completely beginner-friendly crochet stitch. Once you master the basic stitches, you can then move on to combining them into other stitch combinations and patterns.
This brick crochet stitch is suitable for many crochet projects. It would look amazing on a large project like a blanket, throw, or an afghan. These items would really show the stitch combination. There are also many variations of this stitch as seen in THIS beautiful blanket.
However, you can also use it for smaller projects like hats, scarves, or cowls. You can really play around with the color combinations for these projects.
As I mentioned above, it is an amazing crochet stitch for achieving a “tile” look. This is especially handy if you are making a gingerbread house decorations for Christmas.
