How To Crochet Spike Stitch

by Jelena Nemchenko 13 Sep 2023 0 Comments

Are you tired of the same old crochet stitches and looking for a way to spice up your projects? The spike stitch might just be the answer you've been searching for.

How to crochet spike stitch

The spike stitch, also known as the long double crochet or elongated stitch, is a crochet technique that involves working a double crochet into a row or rounds below the current row. This creates a raised stitch that adds a unique texture to your work. The spike stitch is easy to learn and can be used in various ways to create stunning patterns.
