Learn how to crochet the Interlocking Arched Columns Woven Crochet Stitch with this complete photo & video tutorial by Nana’s Crafty Home!
This stitch is a variation of the stitch I used for one of my first crochet patterns on the blog – the Just Peachy Hat pattern. This stitch variation has been featured in my Mountain Trail Pattern series you can find links to all of those free patterns below:
The Mountain Trail pattern series started with the Mountain Trail Tweed Poncho. The other patterns in this series are the Mountain Trail Tweed Blanket, Mountain Trail Beanie Hat, Mountain Trail crochet cowl pattern, Mountain Trail Infinity Scarf pattern and the Mountain Trail Head Band. I have a new one coming out soon!
I think you are going to love this stitch – it has such a unique look – almost a woven appearance. I think it looks similar to Tunisian Crochet as well!
This stitch is created by working a row of filet – double crochet stitch + ch 1 and skipping a stitch between. Then the next row you are working a single crochet stitch on top of each double crochet from the previous row and working a double crochet stitch in the skipped stitch from the previous row. You will be working the double crochet stitch either in front of or behind the chain 1 from the previous row. For one row it will be in front and 1 row will be behind. The stitch then looks like a combination of interlocking columns and arches.
This stitch is best highlighted using color changes from row to row. Changing colors really enhances the woven look of this stitch! But even in one color the texture would be lovely!
