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!
