We have a whole write-up on other great beginner stitches for you to try as well!

The Yarn That’s Perfect for This Crochet Stitch

For this sample, I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice yarn & a size H crochet hook. If you’d like to make this, a bulky yarn such as Wool-Ease Thick & Quick would work too plus it would crochet up faster.

  1. Your web page has too many video ads which jumps in while you are teaching a stitch. This is annoying. I gave up on your site.

    1. Hi, I am sorry you feel that way. When I offer free crochet content and stitch tutorials like this, ads are needed, so I can support my family. If you want to give it a try again, you can click the x button on the video ads, and they won’t show up.


  2. Griddle stitch row two had me confused. There are no chains to stitch into in the second row; there are only SC and DC from row one. Should the SC go into an SC from the first row or into the DC of the first row?
