Adds texture & fun to any crochet pattern!
I love the loop stitch in crochet and love the texture it gives to projects. I have used it in the past to add faux hair to hats such as a cabbage patch doll hat or as a textured row in a blanket. The possibilities are endless!
The Yarn that’s perfect for this crochet stitch
I have had some questions about the yarn I used for this project so I thought I’d address that. For this tutorial I used a worsted weight yarn but any weight of yarn would work with this stitch. I suggest any yarn from Lion Brand Yarn Company!

LOOP STITCH TUTORIAL
Easy / Beginner
- Yarn – any weight will work
- Crochet hook – use a hook that that the yarn label recommends.
- The loop is formed on the back side of the project so the wrong side should be facing you when you are making a loop stitch.
- At the end of every row remember to Chain 1 and Turn.
Chain desired amount and work a row of Single Crochets, Chain 1, Turn. (I used 20 in my sample)
Insert hook into first stitch. Make sure working yarn is looped around finger you are using for tension (see picture)
Hook both strands of yarn on to the hook
Pull both strands through stitch (you can now adjust the loop made at the back of the project to the desired size)
Yarn over and pull through all three loops.
You have completed a loop stitch!!! Continue working loop stitches across the row.
Remember on the next row, work single crochets.
Alternate loop rows and single crochet rows.
Here are some front view pictures of what you get when you do multiple loop stitches and change colors. (Learn how to change colors in crochet here.)
That’s it! You have now completed the loop stitch in crochet! This really is a quick and easy crochet stitch pattern!
