Larksfoot Stitch | Crochet Stitch Tutorial

The perfect way to play with color and unique texture

The larksfoot stitch is as easy to crochet as it is unique. Use this stitch for any project where color is a must! It’s versatile enough to work with many different types of projects like blankets, scarves and even garments.

For the demonstration today I’ll be using my 6.5 mm rose gold Furls Odyssey crochet hook and Lion Brand Color Made Easy yarn but you can pair this stitch with any of your favorite yarns!

Let’s give it a try!

In this tutorial we’ll work up a test swatch so you can get the hang of the Larksfoot stitch before diving into a project.

(By the way, let me know in the comment section what types of patterns you would like to see from me that use this stitch!)
