Stitchopedia Tutorial

The Alpine Stitch is beautifully textured with post stitches and creates a solid, warm fabric that even looks great in a solid color.

Not only does the Alpine Stitch look great in a solid color, but it’s also quite cool changing colors every 2 rows. For this tutorial I’ve changed color every row. When I used this stitch in Section 4 of the Suzie’s Stiped Sampler Blanket CAL, I changed colors every other row.

Alpine Stitch Written Instructions with Photos

The Alpine Stitch is worked over an odd number of stitches. For the video and chart in this tutorial I started with a base of 16 single crochet. The stitch pattern begins with row 2. I’ve also included a finishing row to end your swatch with a row of single crochet. The first and last rows of single crochet are simply to neaten up the top and bottom of your swatch if you want to keep it for future reference. I like to staple mine to an index card with the name of the pattern on it.

Row 1 (WS): FSC an odd number of stitches.
-or-
Ch an even number, turn, sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across.

Row 2 (RS): Turn, dch2 in first st, dc in each st across.

Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sc in first st and in each st across.
