The Larksfoot Crochet Stitch Tutorial is part of the Spring Rhapsody Blanket CAL stitch tutorial series.

The tutorial for the Larksfoot Stitch is the first tutorial for Part 2 of the Spring Rhapsody Blanket. This unique stitch looks so much like a bird’s foot – the reason for its name. Since the Spring Rhapsody Blanket is all about spring and I know that one of my very favorite things about spring is watching the birds – I knew this stitch had to make an appearance in my stitch sampler blanket!

This stitch is especially eye-catching when worked in contrasting colors – it really shows off that long double crochet that is dropped into the previous row. Gorgeous!
