Seed Stitch Repeat Free Crochet Pattern


For the next “Five Free Pattern” focus, we are going to show you a basic textured stitch pattern called the “Seed Stitch”. You may also see or hear this stitch called a “Moss Stitch” or even a “Tweed Stitch”, and it looks very similar to a knitted Seed Stitch. Whatever the name, you will love this stitch pattern because it is so easy to do.

Are you ready to learn the Seed Stitch Repeat Crochet Pattern? It’s so easy! All you have to know is single crochet and chain 1. That’s it! You work a row of SC 1, CH 1, then in the following row you single crochet in the chain 1 space of the previous row and then chain 1. Here’s a close-up view of the stitch pattern.

Our sample was crocheted using a self-striping yarn, so don’t let the color change scare you-the yarn did that all by itself! We will teach you how to work color changes into this pattern in some of the other projects.

In this particular project you are just learning the stitch. For this reason, you don’t need any specific yarn or crochet hook; just grab whatever you have. If you are very new to crochet and don’t have supplies yet, Deborah Norville’s Everyday Soft Worsted Yarn is a great yarn to have on hand. It’s very soft and easy to work with, and it also comes in multi-colors and even a sports-related yarn called Go Team that uses common sports team colors. And of course, Deborah Norville Wood Crochet Hooks are always a great choice when working with her yarns. (Hint: a size I/9 hook works great with Everyday!)

    Hi Pat, the sc 1, dc 1 across is also called a seed stitch. There are many variations of the basic stitch. Sometimes the sc and dc are worked in the SAME stitch. Great question, thanks!
