Spike crochet stitch tutorial

This is one of those really easy crochet stitches that makes such a huge difference. If you’ll have a look at my free Christmas ornament pattern, you’ll see that without the spike stitch, it just wouldn’t look as pretty. If you know how to make a single crochet, then can more than definitely make a spike stitch too. The spike stitch is just a long single crochet. It’s really simple.

First up is my YouTube video about this spike stitch. As you can see in the video and also in the step by step picture tutorial below, I made spike stitches of different lengths. You can make them as long or short as you like. Or if you’re using a pattern, just follow the instructions if you want it to look like the original.

It would be lovely if you liked my video and subscribed to my YouTube channel (completely free).

Step by step picture tutorial

In this step by step picture tutorial you’ll find the instructions under the pictures. As you’ll see, it really is a very simple stitch.

Picture 1: insert your hook in a row that is below your last (you can choose where or do as your pattern instructs you)

Picture 2: pull the yarn through the way you would for a single crochet

Picture 3: pull the yarn through

Picture 4: pull the loop up till the top of your last row

Picture 5: continue as you would for a single crochet

Picture 6: continue as you would for a single crochet

Picture 7: that’s it. You’ve made a spike stitch!

Picture 8: continue with whatever stitch you need to make next (I usually make normal single crochet in the stitches that aren’t for spike stitches

Picture 9: here’s another spike stitches but longer than the last one. You can make them as long as you like

It’s an easy stitch isn’t it? Leave a comment below on what you think about it.

If you would like to learn another nice stitch, allow me to suggest the star stitch. This one looks a little difficult but it isn’t. It’s actually quite an easy stitch and soooooo pretty.
