Looking for an Easy Pretty Crochet Stitch – Do the Wave!

Stitchopedia Tutorial

Easy pretty crochet stitches are some of the best stitches to have in your repertoire. They’re great for blankets, scarves, wraps and more.

Yarn used in this tutorial was provided by WeCrochet. All opinions are my own.

Easy pretty crochet stitches tend to be easy to memorize, and they’re perfect for crocheting while traveling or binge watching your latest fav show. This simple wave crochet pattern looks like it would be hard, but it’s actually quite simple. Change colors every other row for a beautiful crochet creation.

For this tutorial I’ve changed color every row. When I used this stitch in Section 14 of the Suzie’s Stiped Sampler Blanket CAL, I changed colors every other row.

Wave Stitch Written Instructions with Photos

The Wave Stitch is worked over a multiple of 14 plus 1 stitches. For the video and chart in this tutorial I started with a base of 29 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 a multiple of 14+1.
-or-
Ch a multiple of 14+2, turn, sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across.
