Tulip Stitch Crochet Tutorial

The tulip stitch is a quick and easy unique crochet stitch perfect for blankets, scarves and more! Doesn’t the texture remind of a corner-to-corner crochet stitch? This crochet stitch is one I recreated from a well-loved baby blanket. 

When I was pregnant with my first child I received a lovely crocheted blanket at my baby shower. I have used it with all three of my girls and it is certainly well-loved. Ever since I learned to crochet the stitch of this blanket intrigued me. I always had intentions of sitting down and figuring it out. Well, the girls dug it out of the closet the other day, so I figured I might as well figure out this stitch.

Tracking down a name for this stitch was quite a difficult process. The closest I’ve come to find is the Tulip Stitch… also very similar to the Crazy Stitch, Slanted Shell Stitch, and the Brick Stitch. For today’s tutorial, I am going to call it the Tulip Stitch. This pretty stitch creates a heavily patterned fabric that has a really fun texture. The groups of double crochets look like they are made in a zig-zag pattern.

There is just a 1 row repeat so it is easy to memorize and it creates its own lovely scalloped border. How cool is that?! After the foundation row, all the stitches are crocheted into chain spaces rather than in a stitch. This makes this for a very quick growing project.  This is a versatile stitch that would suit a variety of different yarns and projects. From experience, I know that it makes a great baby blanket!

    I’ve actually made a lapghan and baby blanket with the tulip stitch. This pattern is similar, but is a bit lighter weight, and seems to work up a bit faster. Thank you for posting this, I’m very excited to see how it turns out as a baby blanket.

    I am German and although I understand your terminology, I can`t be successfull.

    Row 1: Dc in 3rd ch from hook, ch 2, sc in next ch * skip 2 chs. 2 dc in next ch, ch 2, sc in next ch. Repeat from * across. Turn

    What please is the difference between “ch 2” and “sc in next ch”?

    Thank you for your answer and regards from
