The Tulip Crochet Stitch

Do you love relaxing crochet stitches? I love a good crochet challenge, but sometimes it’s nice to just sit back and crochet on auto-pilot. The tulip crochet stitch is exactly that: a nice, easy repeat that can be made while you’re relaxing or binge-watching your favorite television show.

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: Ch any multiple of 4. I chained 16.

Step 2: In the third ch from the hook, work 3 dc.

Step 3: Ch 2.

Step 4: Work one sc in the next ch.

Step 5: Skip the next 2 chs.

Step 6: Work 3 dc in the next ch.

Step 7: Ch 2.

Step 8: Work one sc in the next ch.

Step 9: Repeat steps 5-8 all the way across the starting ch. Ch 2, turn.

Step 10: Locate the ch 2 space from the row below.

Step 11: In this space, you’ll work:

  • 3 dc
  • ch 2
  • 1 sc

Step 12: Continue to work the same sts from step 11 in each ch 2 space across the row. Ch 2, turn.

Step 13: Repeat row 2 (steps 10-12) until your practice swatch is your desired size.
