The stitches and techniques below (except the Crab Stitch) are included as a word and/or picture tutorials in my patterns (when I use/recommend them), but over the years many of you have asked to actually see I do different stitches and techniques.

I’m working through a list of things I’d like to show you, but if you have a stitch or technique you’d like to have me teach you – I’d love to! Just drop me an email or social media message and tell me what you’d like me to teach. It doesn’t have to be a stitch or technique I use in my patterns – I’m happy to show you anything!

Okay- on to the list of videos! Just click on the title of the one you want to watch to be taken to that video’s blog post page to watch. Some are “quickie” videos (90 seconds or less!) and the rest are complete videos that walk you through step-by-step.

FDC – Foundation Double Crochet

Simple tutorial (no color changing info – for that place see the FDC & Color Changing Tutorial

Reverse Single Crochet aka the Crab Stitch

I LOVE this stitch for the finishing round of a blanket! It looks awesome and is super easy – once you test it out for a bit. It does feel odd at first to crochet “backwards” but the result is totally worth the time to learn!

Standing Double Crochet

How I start new colors for a new panel, or how I start a new color at the beginning of a project worked in the round (classic granny squares or any of my filet pattern borders).

Granny Cluster Decrease (GCD)

I think I made this stitch up! I use it in all my patterns where I turn filet blocks into joinable granny squares. Also used for putting a granny stitch border around blankets.

Crocheting into the “3rd Loop”

Some of my patterns utilize the “third loop” of a stitch. This is the loop under the top pf your stitch, on the back of your work. It’s VERY easy, just check out this quick video!

Invisible Join

This video will blow your mind, guaranteed. The invisible join is hands down the BEST way to join a round of crochet if you will be finishing your color in that round.

Magic Ring

This video shows you how to start a crochet pattern that would be worked in the round (like a granny square) using the Magic Ring (or loop) method.

Tr2Tog – Treble 2 Together or Treble Decrease

This video shows you how to crochet the tr2tog stitch, though I work mine with less loops for a less-bulky final stitch.
