How to Crochet – The Woven Stitch


Hello Yarn Obsession Nation this is Sedie and this lesson is going to be on the woven stitch it’s a simple stitch that uses the single crochet so if you’ve
already learned how to do the single crochet then you’re well on your way to
doing this stitch if you haven’t learned how to
do the single crochet yet the information will be down below on the video you can find that I created on how to do this single crochet then
you can come back to this video and learn how to do the woven stitch let’s get started the woven stitch is a fairly easy stitch which uses the single crochet and an even number of stitches to get the
effect needed so for this demonstration were going to
chain 12 and then begin our base row and
then continue into the woven stitch so let’s chain 12 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 now to begin your base row your
going to insert your hook the second chain from the hook and as we’ve learned the second chain from the hook is
you start counting from this stitch here so that’s 1, 2 so that’s the second
chain from hook insert your hook there and do your single crochet if you haven’t yet learned how to do the single crochet please go back to the video link that is showing right now that I created for how to do it single
crochet then you can come back and continue with
this tutorial after you do your single crochet you’re
going to chain 1 your going to skip the next chain which is right here and insert your hook
into the following chain and do a single crochet in chain 1 then you’re going to skip the next stitch or chain whichever depending on what your up to we’re going to insert
the hook into the next chain pull up a loop and do
our single crochet and then a chain one skip the next chain insert your hook into the following chain pull up a loop single crochet chain one skip the next one insert your hook into the following
chain single crochet chain one skip the next chain insert your hook into the final chain
single crochet and there you have your base row and of course you going to chain
one at the end of this row for your turning chain then you turn your
work and they skip the first single
crochet for your next row you skip the first single crochet and you insert your hook underneath the chain one space those created when you skipped a stitch and you chained one
pull up a loop single crochet chain skip the next single crochet I hope you can see that pretty well skip this next single crochet and you insert
your hook into to the chain one space single crochet chain one you continue across the same way so you skip the next single crochet and insert your hook into the chain one space single crochet chain one again skip the single crochet insert into the chain one space single
crochet chain 1 when you get to the end of your row
there’s going to be you’re turning chain and what you wanna do there is you want to end with a single crochet in you’re turning chain otherwise what
you end up doing is reducing the number
stitches that your working with you don’t want to do that so once you do
your single crochet into your turning chain, chain one for
turning chain then you turn your work and you continue I’m going to do a few more rows and will return with a larger piece so
that you can see what the woven stitch looks like this is what the woven stitch looks like after you’ve done a few rows it’s a beautiful pattern and it gives a lot of texture to your piece whatever it is that your
working on one of the things that I found that is easiest in terms of figuring out
where your next stitch goes is to take a look at the pattern on the woven stitch where you have a single crochet
you also have a “V” hope you can see that every time you have a single crochet
there’s a “V” looking up at you those are you single
crochets and generally with this pattern the woven stitch what you’re going to do is you’re going to insert your hook inside those “V”‘s
you’re going to insert the hook between the “V”‘s okay so to do the woven stitch your going to insert your hook
between the “V” and then you create the single crochet
from there and as you can see the next chain 1 spaces right here between these 2 “V”s so you insert your hook there to create
your next single crochet and chain 1 for the continuation of your pattern so that is your woven stitch if you have any questions or comments leave leave them in the comments section or send me an email I love to hear from
you guys you’re always so kind and I will answer your questions as best I
can and as always have fun

  • that's the way I hold mine too…Thank you so much for this Sedruola….I will spend a lot of time here….learning new stitches.

  • I have been looking for a video on this stitch, I thought it was the linen stitch until I re-read the blog I found it at. I was able to read the pattern and understand it, but I like seeing how things are done. This was such a great video! I love how you explain every step and you can actually see what you are doing, some people don't use a lot of light in their videos. Thank you for making this tutorial, time to crochet a blanket!

  • i enjoyed watching your tutorial cuz you were clear and specific with demonstrating each stitch. and you also did several row which is so helpful and later showed a large piece of how this stitch looks. awesome tutorial!  thank you   ,  

  • Keep the videos coming because they are really helpful. I've watched this video a bunch of times because I am trying to master this particular stitch. Still a beginner but I am trying. 

  • Sedruola,  I loved your video.  I'm a knitter trying my hand at crochet now and then.  I saw a pattern for the crocheted linen stitch, found your video, and now I'm confident to try it.  Thank you for a very clear tutorial.  Sara

  • I read this is a good stitch for towels and the like but written patterns just do NOT make sense. THIS makes sense. Thank you for this! A WHOLE lot easier than I thought!

  • Your trick about identifying the v in the single crochet really helped! Thanks to you I'm completing a beautiful scarf!

  • thank you for teaching the woven stitch, I don't recall getting this stitch, ever. Has it been termed differently? I'm yet rewinding to really perfect it. Thanks again for excellent instructions:-)!

  • I have never had anyone explain which stitch to go into as well as you did. I can't wait to try this new stitch. Thanks so much for a terrific tutorial. Laurie

  • showing the v's and explaining to insert the stitches between the v's is exactly what I was looking for and wasn't getting from written instructions, thanks for this!!

  • VERY well done video!!!! Work is close enough to see, you move at a great and easy pace to keep up with, and you make it easy to understand. Thank you so much, I am definitely subscribing for more videos like this, I live in a very small town with no craft classes – you are awesome! Have a great day:)

  • If I'm making a circle brim for a child hat and need to do increses… how do I do that? I'm looking at my pattern, but the increse line looks the same as the previous line. confusing to explain. ..do you have a tutorial on how to do that. or maybe a written instruction that is better than what I am reading

  • I've looked at many videos to learn this stitch, with no luck. Yours is the best! Thank you for an explanation that was easy to follow in order to create the woven stitch. I'm a beginner and will certainly look for your other videos.

  • ths is not a woven stitch. I have been doing it using bonnie barkers instructions and it is not like this at all. It has 2 parts and you are not doing anything but a sc and a chain 1. NOT a woven stitch at all. YOu should watch bonnie barkers video and the ohter videos out there to see how it is done.

  • Awesome job in explaining which stitch to go into! Filming was excellence! Good close up views. This is a fantastic tutorial . Thanks Laurie, I will continue to follow you.
