How to Crochet The Seed Stitch

By Kathryn Vercillo of Crochet Concupiscence


The seed stitch is an easy stitch pattern of alternating single crochet and double crochet stitches. It makes a great textured pattern, perfect for dishcloths, scarves and more.

Step One:

Crochet a starting chain. Any odd-number length will work. This example shows a starting chain of 19.

Step Two:

Sc in 2nd st from hook.


Step Three:

Dc in next st.


Step Four:

Repeat steps two and three across row, alternating a sc with a dc all the way to the end, ending with a dc.


Step Five:

Turn. Ch 1. Sc, dc in first dc. Sk sc. Sc, dc in next dc. Repeat across row.  There will be one stitch remaining at the end of the row, sc in that last stitch.


Step Six:

Repeat step five to desired length of project.
