I LOVE the Spiked Sedge Stitch! When I came across it not too long ago I just knew it was one that I had to learn.

This is a fabulous stitch for many reasons! It features some wonderful texture and it is reversible making it a great stitch for so many projects!

I look forward to using this one in washcloths, beanies and blankets! I look forward to seeing how you use it in yours!

This stitch is worked similar to the Sedge Stitch except that your final double crochet stitch is worked as a spike stitch into the space two rows below.

Materials for this Tutorial:

For this tutorial today I will be using a small amount of Pima Cotton Yarn by Lion Brand Yarn. It is a worsted weight yarn. The hook shown in the video below is a 5 mm crochet hook.  However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose.

Thank you so much for stopping by! If you enjoy the tutorial below, be sure to also check out some of the many other crochet stitch tutorials on my site and pin this for later! You may wish to start with the Front and Back Loop Single Crochet | How to Crochet.

The Spiked Sedge Stitch:


Ch – Chain

Dc – Double Crochet

Hdc – Half Double Crochet

Rpt – Repeat

Sc – Single Crochet

Sk – Skip

Sl St – Slip Stitch

Yo – Yarn Over



This stitch is worked in rows in this tutorial.

To begin, make a slip knot and then chain your desired number of chains.  For this stitch pattern you will need a multiple of three stitches for your foundation chain plus two (multiples of 3+2).

Row One:

Sc in 2nd ch from your hook and each across.  Ch 1, turn.

Row Two:

[Sc, hdc, dc] in 1st st, *sk the next 2 sts, [sc, hdc, dc] in the next st.  Rpt from * across to final 3 sts, sk 2, sc in final st.  ch 1, turn

Row Three:

[Sc, hdc] in the first st, dc in the space below the first sc 2 rows below, *sk the next 2 sts, [sc, hdc] in the next st, dc in the sp below the sc 2 rows below; rpt from * to end and sc in final st, ch 1, turn.

And that’s it!

For the remainder of the pattern simply repeat row three.  Fasten off and weave in your ends.
