12 Stunning Crochet Stitches for your next crochet blanket, afghan, scarf, throw pillow, bag and more! | The Unraveled Mitten

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 stacks and stacks of blanket and afghan crochet pattern ideas. Lately, they are my go-to project to make.

You can find all my best tips for crocheting blankets here (including a size chart!)

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?

What Should I crochet??

Besides crochet blankets, this collection 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 that last idea! That would be a really fun crochet-along. What do you think?

  1. I’m with you in not wanting to do many blankets. If I make one, I like to change stitches frequently and I’m not a great fan of stitching squares together. I’ve been thinking of doing a flat piece, changing the pattern every 6 inches or so and making it look like separate squares. Of course, they need to make up to the same height and width.
    You have a few stitches there I haven’t seen before and I would like written patterns with a link to tutorial if I get bamboozled.
    I would love to see more.

  2. I am new to The Unraveled Mitten and Iā€™m excited to see all the great resources available! I love learning new stitches, finding new patterns and getting new ideas! Thank you!

  3. Thank you for this fabulous stitch collection. I’m thinking of doing a square of each and making them into an afghan. It would be awesome for a pattern that helped get each of the stitches into the same size squares!

    1. I just looked that one up, very pretty!! I’ll add that one to my list to do in the next coupke weeks. Thanks for the suggestion.
