The Little Waves Crochet Stitch is a fun and simple stitch that incorporates Double Crochet and Front Post Double Crochet stitches. It makes a beautiful, reversible pattern that is both airy and fairly dense. Below you will find the written directions and a video tutorial to walk you through creating this beautiful stitch. Also, I have a pin for you to save to your Pinterest Boards 🙂

Thank you Stacy, this stitch is beautiful. Its on my ‘Definately got to give this one a try’ list … 😀
I’m so happy that you like it! On March 6th I just might be releasing a few free patterns that use this stitch 😉
What size is your crochet hook for the Little Waves baby blanket?
I haven’t released a baby blanket pattern with this stitch yet (I’m currently working on one). But, the size of hook depends on the yarn that you’re choosing to use. For instance, the blanket I’m working on currently is using the DK / #3 light weight yarn and I’m using a G / 4 mm hook. I would recommend swatching to see how you like the drape and then determine your hook from there.
Thank you Stacy! I have started a baby blanket with this stitch using #3 Baby Sport yarn and I’m using a G+/4.5 mm hook and I love the way it is looking. Thank for sharing this stitch, looking forward to your next pattern.
Sounds like you’re on the perfect track! Tomorrow I’ll be releasing a “set” that uses this stitch – can’t wait to share it with you! 🙂
What type/weight of yarn did you use?
For the tutorial I used Caron Simply Soft #4 Worsted Weight Yarn. For the Making Waves table set I used Lion Brand Comfy Cotton Blend #3 DK weight yarn.
I’m going to try thus stich, starting it today!!
Yay! It’s such a fun stitch – I hope you enjoy it!
