Stitchopedia Tutorial

The Lark’s Foot or Icicle stitch is a nearly solid decorative stitch that looks great in two or more colors.

For this tutorial I’ve changed color every row. When I used this stitch in Section 1 of the Suzie’s Stiped Sampler Blanket CAL, I changed colors every other row. I feel this stitch looks best when the color is changed every other row; not only is it easier to carry colors up the side of your work this way, but it accents the stitch design quite nicely.

Lark’s Foot Stitch Written Instructions with Photos

The Lark’s Foot stitch is worked over a multiple of 4 plus 1 stitches. For the video and chart in this tutorial I started with a base of 17 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.
