Stitchopedia ~ Crochet Spider Stitch from Jessie At Home

I love the Spider Stitch! I have been using it for years, but I only just learned the name. It creates a fabric that drapes nicely, without being open or lacey. Would you like to learn? I have made a video to teach you this simple stitch pattern, and I have also written out instructions for you, and made a chart and pattern for a little practice square. Enjoy!

Abbreviations:
ch ~ chain
sc ~ single crochet
st(s) ~ stitch(es)
sp(s) ~ space(s)

Spider Stitch:
Row 1: Ch an even number, turn, (sc, ch 1, sc) in 2nd st from hook, * skip 1 ch, (sc, ch 1, sc) in next ch, repeat from * to end of row.
Row 2: Turn, (sc, ch 1, sc) in each ch-1 sp across.
Repeat row 2 for pattern

  1. I love this stitch but had trouble going thru the chain 1 space. So I started over and chained 2 instead of 1. My piece looks great and it’s much easier to work with.

    • That is easier, but it will change your gauge significantly if you are trying to follow a pattern. I like the look of that stitch as well!!

  2. Hi! I just made a baby blanket with this stitch (love it!) and have some leftover yarn. I would like to make a baby hat to match. Do you have a pattern? Especially looking for one with ear flaps but not totally necessary.
