How to Crochet Ribbing

Ribbing isn't just for knitting! Creating a crochet ribbed stitch is actually quite easy. Let us show you how!

Updated April 10, 2019
How to Crochet Ribbing

Ribbing is just for knitters, right? Wrong! You can just as easily crochet ribbing, and this video tutorial by Heidi Gustad will show you how. By alternating rows of single crochet stitches and slip stitches, learn How to Crochet Ribbing and create a ribbed piece that looks just like the knitters make. It's so creative and pretty-looking.

Using this crochet ribbed stitch is a great way to add some stretch to the bottom band of a hat, for instance, or to work into the sides of a sweater or top design to add just a bit of stretchiness. Follow along with our video or take a look at the simple pattern written below with images.
 

Easy

Materials List

  • Crochet hook of choice
  • Yarn of choice

Ribbed Crochet Pattern:

  1. Foundation Chain: Any number of stitches your pattern requires (this tutorial uses 6).

  2. Row 1: 1 sc into 2nd chain from hook. 1 sc into each chain st across, turn.

    Tip: Don't crochet too tightly throughout this process because it makes each row more difficult.

  3. Row 2: 1 Sl st into each sc across. Ch 1 and turn.

  4. Row 3: 1 sc into each sl st across, turn.

  5. Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you have reached your desired length.
