The Little Arches crochet stitch is a beautiful stitch. It has slight lace like qualities and I think it would be a beautiful baby blanket stitch. Consisting of double crochet and chains, this stitch is really easy to work up and is a simple one row repeat.

Pattern use ideas

  • Blankets
  • Scarves
  • Home decor


Feel free to play around with yarn weights and hook sizes for this stitch pattern, but I have used:

Yarn: I used Scheepjes SoftFun in Rose

Hook: I have used a 4.5mm Athena Hook

Darning Needle



Written in US terms

This pattern gives you the basic principles for the little arches stitch, designed to help you create your own projects.

Video tutorial can be found at the base of the post.

Chain(s): Ch(s): Yarn over and pull up a loop.

Double Crochet(s): dc(s): Insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop, you will have two loops on the hook. Yarn over, pull through remaining two loops.

Unsure of the differences between UK and US terms? Need a refresher on how to do your stitches? In my ‘How to crochet: A handy reference guide’ EBook I help you with all of these terms and you can always have them to hand! You will also get exclusive access to free video instructions.
