The Crochet Loop Stitch Adds Texture

I love the loop stitch in crochet and love the texture it gives to any crochet project. I have used it in the past to add faux hair to a cabbage patch doll hat or as a textured row in a blanket.

The possibilities really are endless with the loop stitch!

I have had some questions about the yarn I used for this loop project, so I thought I’d address that. For this tutorial, I used a worsted weight yarn, but any weight of yarn would work with this stitch.

  3. Thank you so much for this! I have been trying to find a good tutorial for the loop stitch and this finally helped it sink in. Thank you! I was wondering if I did the loops over a dowel or even a knitting needle could I do a row of them over it and then pull it out when I’m done?

  4. I love the look of this stitch. Can you tell me is after it’s finished to the loops pull if they are snagged? I guess I’m asking if they are “tight” or “loose” if pulled. Hope that makes sense. Thank you!
