Crocheting is one of my favorite pastimes. From making a scarf, to a beanie, to a pillowcase and more, it’s incredibly relaxing and so much fun to do… especially when you learn something new!
I recently learned a new stitch and wanted to share it with all of you.
Donna Wolfe from Naztazia.com is back at it again with another adorable tutorial. This time, it’s for the wave stitch.
The wave stitch is a fun, wavy-looking stitch that works great for a scarf, shawl, blanket, or handbag, along with many other projects.
To get started, you’ll need a crochet hook and your yarn. Many kinds of yarn will work for this, and Donna is using a size H 5.0 mm crochet hook.
To do this, you will need to already know how to crochet a chain, slip stitch, and half double crochet.
This simple pattern is easy to remember because it alternates between half double crochet stitches and slip stitches. To make it even easier, all stitches are done in groups of 5, making it just as quick as it is easy. These are also done in the back loops only.
Here’s how it’s done. Begin by chaining 36, or any multiple of 10 plus 6. Then, do 5 slip stitches.
In the next 5 chains, do 5 half double crochets, one for each stitch, just like the previous slip stitches.
Repeat this process over and over again to create your wave. You can add additional colors as well, making a gorgeous piece of art.
Watch Nazstazia‘s video below for more on how this is done. Then, get started with your own wave crochet project. It’s too cute!
