How to Crochet the Block Stitch
Learn how to crochet the block stitch with this easy-to-follow video tutorial. The stitch itself is pretty easy to work and requires a starting chain of multiples of 5, plus an additional 2 stitches. To work this stitch, you'll need to be familiar with single crochet and double crochet stitches as well as chain stitches. After that, just follow along with the video and any pattern you're referencing - it's that easy! As Heidi mentions in her video, this stitch is great for any afghans or cowls or really anytime you want to try some granny square-style colorwork into your designs.
To start, chain any multiple of 5, plus an extra 2 stitches. In this video, we are chaining 12 .
Row 1: Sc in the second chain from the hook, then *ch 4 and skip 4 sts before sc into the 5th stitch.* Repeat in between the * * for the rest of the row.
Switch to your second color and ch 3. Turn.
Row 2: Dc4 into the ch-4 space, then ch1. Repeat for the row. For the very last stitch, instead of chaining 1, dc.
Switch to your first color, ch 1 and turn.
Row 3: Sc into the top of your first dc stitch, then ch4 and single crochet into the ch 1 space below. Ch 4 and single crochet into the last stitch.
Repeat rows 2-3 for the stitch.
