Crochet Granny Stripe Stitch Tutorial

I’m bringing you all another stitch tutorial this week with this crochet granny stripe tutorial.

It’s a really easy stitch to learn. If you know how to make a chain and double crochet, you’re good to go. Very beginner friendly.

It makes for a light and breezy stitch. The granny stripe stitch is perfect for a light blanket, summer tops or fall scarves etc. It’s pretty versatile for whenever you want something a little breathable.

It’s also one of those crochet stitches that look good from both sides, so it opens up a lot of design options.

If you’re feeling more ambitious than a crochet stitch tutorial, you should check out these free patterns I have on the blog.

The granny stripe stitch will look familiar if you’ve played around with a granny square, which is worked in the round but shares some aesthetic similarities. Check out my granny square tutorial if you’re not familiar.

I’m using Berroco Vintage Chunky #5 bulky weight yarn, as well as a 5mm crochet hook. You can use any yarn or hook size you prefer for this stitch tutorial, whatever you have is good. Just have fun!
