Celtic Weave Crochet Stitch

July 10th, 2022

Pin it now, make later!

The Celtic Weave Crochet Stitch is one of those stitches that I know many of you would avoid because it looks too complicated. And trust me, I hear you. It DOES look complicated, but I truly believe that if you take this stitch step by step, you’ll be able to achieve this stunning stitch.

    Should Row 3 end with “BPtr around next 2 sts Tr in last st. Turn” rather than the last 3 stitches being 2BPdtr and then a tr?
    Also, thank you for all the amazing instructions! I found your videos and started crocheting in Dec 2021/Jan 2022 and have quickly become obsessed! Your videos are so very helpful! Thank you!

    I’m trying to figure out how to make this gorgeous stitch into a 40×40 blanket I’ve never done this before, as I always watch tutorials telling me how many skeins to use, and how many chains. How would I figure this out? Thank you.

      Hi Terese The best way to work this out would be to make a small sample swatch that you can measure, and use to work out how many chains to make for a full size blanket. For example, if a swatch of thirty chains measured ten inches, you would need to multiply this by four
