Crochet Bean Stitch
Learn how to crochet the bean stitch with this video tutorial!
Crochet bean stitch is a delightfully squishy stitch that should make its way into your library. This bean stitch crochet tutorial with Heidi Gustad is the perfect way to learn a new stitch that will add texture to your next crochet pattern.
As you can see by the bumps and look of this stitch, it is a super fluffy, textural stitch that would look great in a variety of places. In order to keep that look it is important to not make your stitches too tight because you will need to draw six stitches through a loop.
Despite some of the confusion that might come with counting to make sure you have the number of loops on your hook right, the finished basketweave texture of the bean stitch would look great anywhere.
NotesYou'll need an even number of chains to begin.
