Play with colour as you work this Crochet Flame stitch! You may work it in a simple colour or in multiple as I will demonstrate below.
Regardless of how many colours you use, this stitch is interesting to look at and fun to work. the pattern is made by working rows of single crochet and rows of spike stitches. The fabric is a solid piece that is similar on both the front and the back making it a great stitch for your reversible projects. It would create a trendy baby blanket or modern throw for your home!

Sc – Single Crochet

This stitch is worked in rows in this tutorial. You may work the stitch in one colour or many. I will be working the design in three colours: A, B, C.
To begin, make a slip knot and then chain your desired number of chains. For this stitch pattern you will need a multiple of six stitches for your foundation chain, plus 2 (multiples of 6 + 2).
For example, with colour A, ch 26.
Dc in the 4th ch from your hook, *ch 2, sk the next 2 sts, dc in each of the next 4 sts; Rpt from * across ending with a dc in each of the final 2 sts. Ch 1, turn.
Work 1 sc in each st and 2 sc in each ch-sp all the way across. Join colour B in the final st. With colour B, ch 2, turn.
*Dc in the next st, long dc over each of the next 2 sts working into the 2 skipped sts 2 rows below, dc in the next st, ch 2, sk the next 2 sts; Rpt from * across, hdc in the final st. Ch 1, turn.
Work 1 sc in each st and 2 sc in each ch-2 sp across. Join colour C in the final st. With colour C, ch 3, turn.
*Dc in the next st, ch 2, sk the next 2 sts, dc in the next st, long dc over the next 2 sts working into the skipped sts 2 rows below; Rpt from * across ending with a dc in each of the final 2 sts. Ch 1, turn.
Work 1 sc in each st and 2 sc in each ch-2 sp across. Join colour A in the final st. With colour A, ch 2, turn.
And that’s it!
From here work rows 3-6 alternating your colours A, B, C every two rows as per the pattern above. Fasten off and weave in your ends.
