How to Crochet Jacob’s Ladder Stitch – Chain Loop Braids by Naztazia


Hi I’m Donna Wolfe from naztazia.com Today I’ll show you how to crochet the Jacob’s Ladder with chain loops. To begin chain 37 or
any multiple of five plus two. In the fourth chain from the hook make a double
crochet. And double crochet in each stitch across. At the end you’ll have 35 stitches. Chain
one make one single crochet in each stitch across. And you’ll have 35 single
crochet stitches on this row as well. These two gray rows just form a nice
foundation for the loop stitches. I’m switching to the blue yarn for the
loop row. Chain three. This chain three counts as one double crochet stitch. Make four more double crochet stitches for a total of five double crochet stitches. Three Four, and five. Now chain ten. 9 and 10. Slip stitch in the top of the last
double crochet. Next make five double crochet stitches. One, two, three, four, and five. Chain ten again. 9 and 10. Slip stitch on the double crochet again. Continue this process across the row. Chain one. We’re going to single crochet
in groups of five across the row. One, two, three, four, and five. Push the loop out of the way and single
crochet in the next five stitches. One, two, three, four, and five. Push the loop out of the way
again. Single crochet in the next five stitches. You might need to really look
at your previous double crochet stitches to see exactly where to put those five
stitches. And five. Continue this across the row. I’m switching to the pink yarn now. We’re
just going to repeat the previous loop row. The chain three counts as one double crochet as before. Double crochet in the next four stitches. Three, four, and five. Chain 10 and slip stitch. Continue the same process across the row. Once this loop row is completed you’ll chain one and proceed with a single
crochet again. One, two, three, four and five. Push the loop out of the
way and work the next five stitches with single crochet. Continue making and
alternating the double crochet loop rows with the single crochet rows for as long
as you wish. Now it is time to connect the chain loops. Begin at the bottom and
weave the loops in like this. You are basically chaining with the
chains. Continue upwards until the last loop. And leave that last loop just
hanging. Move on to all of the other columns of loops. Feel free to either use
a hook or just your fingers to do this. Once you are finished with the loop rows
I like to make one plain double crochet row with no loops on it. Chain one and turn. Now think in groups of five for this row. Make five single crochet stitches. On the fifth stitch we’re going to catch
that chain loop from behind and then finish the single crochet. Then start over counting the next five
single crochet. And that first one will catch the same chain loop. Two. Three. Four. And on this fifth stitch catch the
next chain loop. And on the first set of five stitches
catch the loop again. Continue with this process across the row, catching the
chain loop with stitches number five and stitches number one. You can see what
this looks like. At the end I like to finish this with one more row of plain
double crochet stitches. You can see what this looks like on the back and on the
front. And that’s how I make the Jacob’s Ladder with chain loops.
