Steps Down Stitch - Stitchopedia Crochet Video Tutorial by Jessie At Home - Social

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

The Steps Stitch can be made using any set of numbers for the front and back post stitches that make the steps. I used 9 for both, but once you get this stitch down, you can change up the numbers however you want!

I think this stitch pattern would work wonderfully in a single color. For this tutorial I’ve changed color every row. When I used this stitch in Section 10 of the Suzie’s Stiped Sampler Blanket CAL, I changed colors every other row and carried the yarn up the side.

Steps Stitch Written Instructions with Photos

The Steps Stitch is worked over a multiple of X plus X stitches. For the video and chart in this tutorial I started with a base of XX 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 18+2
-or-
Ch a multiple of 18+3, turn, sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across.
Row 2: Turn, dch2 in first st, dc in each st across.
