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.

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.

Quickie: Chain-less Round Joining Method (for granny squares)
Quickie: Stacked Single Crochet – pseudo dc stitch to avoid the “ch3 = dc” in projects worked in the round. I use this when I am making granny squares or granny stitch border on my filet blankets. It is best used with my Chain-less Round Joining Method.
