In today’s tutorial, I will be showing you how to make the Cabbage Patch stitch. The name of this stitch is what intrigued me to try it and I am so glad I did.

This stitch is made up of a 2-row repeat. One row of crossed double crochets and then a row of shells stitches. It works up quick once you get the stitch pattern memorized.

Still curious about that giveaway? Keep reading I’ll give you all the details after the tutorial!


  • I used a #4/worsted weight yarn
  • 5 mm hook
  • Please feel free to use any yarn weight/hook combo your heart desires


  • I use US terminology
  • Ch(s): chain(s)
  • Dc: double crochet
  • Sk: skip
  • St(s): stitch(es)
  • Sp: space

A Closer Look at the Crossed Double Crochet

Did you understand the crossed double crochet from row 2? Here is a color coded picture that I hope will help you master this stitch.

In the first row you made groups of 4-double crochets. In the second row, you will make a double crochet in the last double crochet of the group from the previous row (Purple). Then chain 2.(Green) You will finish your crossed double by making 1 double crochet back into the first stitch of that group of 4 (blue).

And that’s all there is to it! What are you going to make, I would love to know?

    Love this pattern very easy, just wondering how you end it as in which row is the last and do you put boarder around it? Thanks.

  4. Dee says:

    How do you end the blanket? The four cluster stitches make it similar to a fan. Do you do single ceochets?
    Thank you for the pattern, by the way. It comes together beautifully!

  5. Jo Ann Cheatham says:

    I have searched the instructions and can’t see any where what to do after row three. Do we repeat row two and three? Just three? Or one, two, and three?! TIA
