How to Crochet the Bean Stitch

How to Crochet the Bean Stitch
How to Crochet the Bean Stitch

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.

Bean Stitch Directions

  1. Ch a mult of 2 stitches

  2. To make the first bean stitch: Ch 1 and turn. Insert hook into the next st, yarn over and draw up a loop. Without pulling anything else through, yo again and insert hook into the same stitch, yo and pull through. Yo again, insert hook into that same stitch and pull up one more loop (6 loops on hook). Yo one last time and draw it through all 6 loops on your hook. Yo and draw through to secure those stitches (ch). One bean stitch made. 

  3. Continue the bean stitch across the row

I am currently working on this, I watched the video and understood the concept but then came to the written pattern . This does not match what was in the video. There is nowhere in the video that show you slip stitching at the end of the row. When I looked at other videos not one has a slipstich in it. Can you help me with this?

This is a really unique stitch, I am excited to try it. Thanks!
