Hey, everyone! My name is Priscilla, owner of The Stitch Queen Crochet. I specialize in creating boho + hippie inspired crochet patterns(links to my shops and YouTube Channel are at the bottom of this post.) 👉🏾 Today I want to show you one of my all time FAVORITE Crochet Stitches/Techniques~ The Alpine Crochet Stitch!



This stitch is FULL of beautiful texture, and looks amazing in solid or multi-color projects. So keep this in your back pocket, add it to your Pinterest board to save for later, and learn it right now! :)


Okay let's get into it:


What I used/Materials List:

5.5mm (I) Boye Crochet Hook (link below)

Got everything you need? Great! Let's get started!

You're going to want to start off with making a slip knot on your hook, and chaining an odd number of chains. I decided to start off with 23 chains.



**Also, I start all of my Rows with a Chain 1, and this does not count as a stitch**


Row 1: Skip the first two chains, double crochet into the 3rd chain, then into every chain. At the end of the row, turn your work.



Row 2: Single Crochet into every stitch. Then at the end of the row, turn your work.



Row 3: Double Crochet into the first stitch, then instead of double crocheting into the next single crochet, do a front post double crochet stitch into the double crochet below it.

Optional: **If you crochet tightly, the front post double crochet may make your work curl. Try doing a front post treble crochet if this happens to you.**

After you do your first front post double crochet, double crochet into the next single crochet(not the one that you skipped to do the front post stitch in), and then instead of double crocheting into the next stitch, do a front post double crochet into the double crochet below it. (pictures below)

Keep repeating this pattern until the end of row, going back and forth between double crochet and front post double crochet stitches.

The row should end with one regular double crochet stitch. Turn your work.






Row 4: Single Crochet into every stitch. Turn your work.



Row 5: Double Crochet into the first two stitches, then instead of the crocheting into the next single crochet, do a front post double crochet stitch into the double crochet below it(this is a regular double crochet stitch from two rounds ago, you will never do front post stitch into a front post stitch, only into regular double crochet stitches).

After that, double crochet into the next stitch(not into the one you skipped). You will go back and forth between front post double crochet stitches and regular double crochet stitches until the last two stitches. Double crochet into the last two stitches. Turn your work.





👉🏾 You will repeat Rows 2 - 5 to continue the Alpine Stitch Pattern.
