How to Crochet the Spike Stitch – Stitchorama Collection by Naztazia


Hi I’m Donna Wolfe from naztazia.com Today I’ll show you how to crochet the spiked stitch. I’m using worsted weight yarn and an H hook. To begin chain 36 or any multiple of 5 + 1. Skip the first chain and make one
single crochet in each chain across. You will make a total of five rows of one
single crochet in each stitch. You can see what the five rows look like. To
change colors begin your last single crochet stitch and then with the new
color yarn finish the stitch. Chain one and turn your work. We’re going to do elongated single crochet stitches in groups of five across the row. The first
single crochet will be a regular one in the top loops. The second single crochet
will be done one row down. The third single crochet will be one
more row down. The fourth another row down. And the
fifth single crochet will be done another row down. Now we will repeat this group of five
again. Start off with the regular single crochet stitch. Number two will be done
one row below. Stitch number three one more row below. Stitch number four
another row below. And finally stitch number five another row below that.
Continue doing groups of five single crochet stitches across. At the end if
your count is correct your last single crochet will be near the edge. Once completed chain one and turn your
work. Do four rows of one single crochet across. You’ll have one elongated row
plus the four regular single crochet rows for a total of five white rows. I’m
switching to the green color now. Chain one and turn. We need to follow the
previous elongated row’s pattern. So this time we’re starting off with the longest
single crochet stitch and then we work our way upwards. We’ll end our five stitches with a
regular single crochet. Continue this pattern across the row. Afterwards make
four rows of regular single crochet stitches. Next I’m switching to the pink
color. This time our stitches start off at the top and get longer as we go.
Regular single crochet followed by elongated single crochet stitches that
continue to grow in height as we proceed. After the spike row, do four more rows of
regular single crochet. Continue this for as long as you wish. And that’s how I
make the spike stitch.
