The Celtic Weave Crochet Stitch

The Celtic weave crochet stitch is a stunning and intricate pattern that adds a touch of elegance to your projects. This technique involves crossing stitches to create a woven, textured look reminiscent of the traditional Celtic designs. By alternating front and back post stitches, you achieve a beautiful woven effect resembling a cable knit.

This stitch is often used in blankets, scarves, and garments, adding depth and sophistication to your crochet creations. While it may seem complex, once you get the hang of the technique, it becomes a captivating and rewarding pattern to work on. So, grab your yarn and hook, and dive into the world of Celtic weave crochet for projects that showcase both skill and style 🙂

Instructions for the Celtic Weave Crochet Stitch:

This tutorial is just for a practice swatch. However, if you’re a confident crocheter and want to just jump into making a project (dishcloth, scarf, etc.) then go for it!

Step 1: Make a starting ch of any multiple of 4 + 3. I started with 27. Ch 1, turn.

Step 2: Work one dc in the first st and in each st across. Ch 1, turn.

Step 3: (Ch 1 does not count as a st) Work one dc in the first st.

Step 4: Skip the next two sts.

Step 5: Work one fptr around the next st. So, yo twice.

Step 6: Insert your hook behind the post of the dc from the row below and pull up a loop. You will now have 4 loops on your hook.

Step 7: Yo pull through two loops. Repeat this a total of 3 times until you have completed the st. First fptr is made.

Step 8: Work one fptr around the st after that one.

Step 9: Now, go back to the first skipped st and work a fptr around that st.

Step 10: Then work a fptr around the second skipped st.

Your work should have an X shape with two sets of sts leaning toward the right and two sets leaning toward the left.

Step 11: Now, skip the next two sts.

Step 12: Then work one fptr around the next st.

Step 13: Then work one fptr around the st after that.

Step 14: Now, go back to the first skipped st and work one fptr around that.

Step 15: Then work one fptr around the next skipped st. Now you should see two X shapes formed.

Step 16: Repeat steps 11-15 until the end of the row. Make one dc in the very last st. Ch 1, turn.

Row 2 is complete.

Step 17: Next row: work one dc in the first st.

Step 18: Turn your work toward you so you can see the other side. You will be working a bptr around these next two sts.

Step 19: Yo twice.

Step 20: Now you’ll work a bptr. (Looking at the back of your work) insert your hook through the backside of the post of the next dc from the row below. Pull up a loop. You will have 4 loops on your hook.

Step 21: Yo and pull through 2 loops. Repeat this a total of 3 times until your st is complete.

Step 22: Now work a bptr in the st after that.

Step 23: Skip the next 2 sts.

Step 24: Once again, turning your work toward you so that you can access the sts from the back, work one bptr in each of the next 2 sts.

Step 25: Now, using your thumb, push the 2 skipped sts out toward the back so they’re easier to see.

Step 26: It’s a bit trickier to work into these sts, but you will work one bptr in each of these skipped sts. Use your thumb to continue to push the sts out the back to make them easier to access.

Keeping the back of your work facing you, you can now see the X shape forming again.

Step 27: Now, skip the next 2 sts.

Step 28: Work one bptr in each of the next 2 sts after that.

Step 29: Now, go back and work one bptr in each of the two skipped sts.

Step 30: Repeat steps 27-29 until you get to the last three sts.

Step 31: Work one bptr around the first two sts.

Step 32: Work one dc in the very last st. Ch 1, turn.

The third row is now complete.

Step 33: This row is a repeat of row 2 (steps 3-15). I’ll walk you through the first part. So, dc in the first st.

Step 34: Skip the next two sts.

Step 35: Work one fptr around each of the next two sts after that.

Step 36: Then, go back to the 2 skipped sts and work one fptr around each of those sts.

Step 37: Repeat steps 34-36 until you get to the very st. Work one dc in the last st. Continue to repeat rows 3&4 until your practice swatch is your desired size.
