Stitchopedia Tutorial

Learn to crochet the little fans stitch in no time with a step by step video, a row by row written tutorial, and a crochet chart (sometimes called a crochet diagram).

White background with text that reads "Stitchopedia, crochet video tutorial, Little fans stitch" and "Jessie At Home". A round image on the right of crochet.

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

Little fans is a simple stitch pattern with a one row repeat making it great for beginners. It’s perfect for blankets because it’s quick and easy, and it looks lovely in one color or in a multiple colors. Make stripes or used color changing yarn for a quick baby blanket.

For this tutorial I’ve changed color every row. When I used this stitch in Section 11 of the Suzie’s Stiped Sampler Blanket CAL, I made stripes of different heights to show off how this stitch can change looks depending on color changes.

Little Fans Stitch Pattern Written Instructions with Photos

The Little Fans Stitch Pattern is worked over a multiple of 4 plus 1 stitches. For the video and chart in this tutorial I started with a base of 25 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.
