Diagonal Spike Stitch: Crochet Stitch Tutorial


If you know how to stitch the double crochet, you are ready to learn the diagonal spike stitch!

I’m always looking for ways to add texture and I love learning new stitch patterns, how about you?!

This stitch is worked in a multiple of 4 +2 and uses double crochets with a slight twist.

Why learn the linked double crochet cluster?

The diagonal spike stitch is such a simple and easy way to vary a large panel of double crochet.

If you’re like me, you get a little bored when doing a large piece, like maybe a blanket, that is just nothing but double crochet.

You can use this stitch to add some texture. Maybe every other row, or do 2 rows of each alternating.

Hooray for texture!

In about 7 minutes, you will be on your way to significantly improving your crochet life! Just grab a hook and some yarn and watch the video tutorial for this amazing crochet stitch below!
