Front Loop Only Double Crochet Stitch Pattern

Using tip #1 from May 16th’s post, double crochet stitch and what we learned about crocheting in the front loop only on May 10th, I’d like to share a simple design that you can use to make scarves, blankets, and warm shawls. Naturally, you are only limited by your imagination and can make whatever your heart desires with this simple pattern.

In this pattern, all of your double crochet stitches will show the front side only on one side, and the back side only on the other. The front side of your fabric will be smooth, while the back side will have a small ridge from the front loop only stitches you made.

Step 1: Crochet a foundation chain + 3.

Step 2 (row 1): Double crochet in 3rd chain from hook and in each stitch across.

Step 3 (row 2): chain 1, single crochet across the row

Step 4 (row 3): chain 3, dc in front loop only of each single crochet in the previous row

Repeat steps 3 and 4 to make an all over pattern.
