One of my favorite things about crocheting is learning new stitches! There is so much you can do with crochet beyond the basic single, half double and double crochet stitches.
I have to admit, I love to plan out afghans and blankets but I do not like to crochet them… unless it uses super bulky yarn. Anything bigger than a baby blanket and I am out lol. That is why I enjoy making these crochet stitch tutorials!

Finding New Crochet Stitches to Learn
I have a collection of stitch dictionaries that I love to flip through to find new crochet stitches to try. If you don’t have any I highly recommend getting at least one! My favorite is the Crochet Stitch Dictionary by Sarah Hazell. It has really clear photos and of the finished swatch and each step as well as charts to go along with each stitch. I have used mine so much the cover is gone and the pages are dog eared (I think I need a new copy… thank goodness for Amazon Prime!)
Another great place to find new crochet stitches is Pinterest (Do you follow me, because you really should! Head over there and click that follow button, I’ll wait right here….) Ok now that we got that out of the way, did you see my Crochet Stitches and Tips board? There is so much great crochet stitch inspirations there.
What Should I crochet??
Besides crochet blankets this collections of crochet stitches would be perfect for a scarf, hat, sweater, bag, toss pillow or pretty much anything. It might even be fun to make a square or two of each stitch and join them together in a sampler afghan.
Hmmm, I might be on to something with with last idea! That would be a really fun crochet-along. What do you think?
