Crochet Loop Stitch Tips And Tricks

In this crochet tutorial, you will learn how to make the crochet loop stitch. We will be using photos as well as a detailed video tutorial.

This fun and interesting stitch provides extra texture and dimension. That makes the crochet stitch look like a natural rug such as a grass field or even pine needles.

In fact, I used the stitch in one of my crochet patterns which is called the Advent Wreath.

For that wreath, I used the loop stitch to create a pine needle-like texture around the wreath to make it look more real.

Simple single crochet rows would have not provided that extra dimension.

The stitch itself is very easy and fast to crochet. You just need to make sure that the loops are longer when crocheting them than you want them to be in the end.

As the loops are created with the single crochet together, you might have a tendency to pull the yarn as you keep crocheting which in return makes the loop shorter.

But if you keep your tension consistent and pull the finished loops after, you should be fine.

Although, I do not recommend this stitch as the main stitch for any wearables. It creates too many holes and the project might pull too much making the loops disappear.

Start by making a chain in the length desired or needed for the project.

Then either start with a row of single crochets or start crocheting the loop stitch right away. This is totally up to you.

In order to make the loop stitch, you will wrap your yarn you use for making your stitches, around your middle finger (if you are holding the yarn like me).

Then, insert your hook into the stitch you want the loop stitch to be. Then yarn over around the yarn that is already wrapped around your middle finger to create and secure the loop.

Next, you will keep holding the yarn around your finger and pull the just wrapped yarn (around the hook) thru the stitch.

You will now yarn over again and finish the stitch just like you would for normal single crochet.

Now, you can pull your middle finger out of the loop and let it go.

You can now crochet into the next stitch the same way as you just did to create the next loop stitch.

After you finish a row of loop stitches, your project should like something similar to mine below.

Second row

In order to make sure your loops are only on one side, you will now crochet one simple row of single crochet. This is to get back to the starting point of making loop stitches.

Repeat the above steps to crochet another row of loop stitches.

The more rows of loop stitches and in between single crochet rows you crochet the more texture and dimension you see.
