Crocheting with only the basic stitches is like coloring with only 3 of the crayons in the crayon box. Sure that’s fine for people who just started out crocheting, but if you’ve mastered the basics (slip stitch, single crochet, half double, double crochet, and treble crochet), then it might be time to step out of your comfort zone. Let’s learn some new unique crochet stitches today!
Of course, a lot of these stitch patterns are perfectly suited to beginners. These fantastic tutorials will show you new ways to put basic crochet stitches together to create new and exciting patterns and textures.
Each crochet stitch pattern brings something different to the table. This is an excellent reference to bookmark for the new time you are in search of that “perfect stitch” for your next crochet project.

Common Questions about Crochet Stitches
When you start out, you learn a basic stitch or two and then add to your knowledge. The first step in crochet is learning to tie a slip knot. Then a basic chain and you can move on to the single crochet stitch. The next basic crochet stitch is a double crochet stitch or a half double crochet stitch. Finally, you move on to taller stitches such as the treble crochet stitch (also called triple crochet stitch).
Eventually, with these basic crochet stitches, you can work a more advanced crochet stitch such as a popcorn stitch, puff stitch, loop stitch, or even crochet cables! This list has 50 amazingly beautiful stitches, but it is by no means exhaustive. The world is truly your oyster with a skein of yarn and your trusty crochet hook!
This is really in the eye of the beholder. Some people swear by a traditional granny stitch and love the classic look you get with this stitch pattern.
Others prefer a textured crochet stitch such as the grit stitch or bullion stitch. There really is no right or wrong and many people love lacy stitches as well, such as the duchess lace stitch. (Check out this stitch in the Duchess Baby Blanket here!)
Of course, this doesn’t take into account the many beautiful Tunisian Crochet stitch patterns – but that’s for another post.
