Learn how to crochet the Braided Loops Crochet Stitch with this complete photo & video tutorial at Nana’s Crafty Home!
The Braided Loops Crochet Stitch tutorial is part of the Spring Rhapsody Blanket CAL Stitch series by Nana’s Crafty Home.
The Braided Loops Crochet Stitch is a variation of the Jacob’s Ladder crochet stitch using double crochet stitches which allows the stitch to grow much faster!
This stitch is surprisingly easy – all you do is work multiple chain stitches between your double crochet stitches which creates a loop. At the end of your project you braid the loops together and crochet into place – super simple!
