The Falling Brick Stitch is a very easy crochet stitch that works up very quickly!

The stitch pattern is quite open and lacy.  It uses basic crochet stitches such as the triple/treble stitch and the chain stitch.  While I am not sure that I would make an entire blanket out of this stitch, it would make a great stitch for a more lacy project such as a shawl or a lacy top.  I look forward to seeing how you use it!

Materials for this Tutorial:

For this tutorial today I will be using a small amount of Pima Cotton Yarn by Lion Brand Yarn in a single colour. It is a worsted weight yarn. The hook shown in the video below is a 5 mm (H/8) birchwood crochet hook by Rowan Yarns.  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 Zigzag Spike Puff Stitch | How to Crochet.

The Falling Brick Stitch


Ch – Chain

Rpt – Repeat

Sc – Single Crochet

Sk – Skip

Sl St – Slip Stitch

Tr – Triple/Treble 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 ten stitches plus six stitches for your foundation chain (multiples of 10+6).

For example, ch 36.

Row One:

Tr in the 5th ch from your hook, tr in each of the next 4 sts, *sk the next 4 chs, tr in the next st, ch 4, tr in each of the next 5 sts; rpt from * across to the final st, tr in the final st.  Ch 4, turn.

Row Two:

*Work 5 tr in the next ch-4 sp, sk the next 5 tr sts, tr in the next tr, ch 4; Rpt from * across, tr in the top of the starting ch-4.  Ch 4, turn.

And that’s it!

Repeat row two for the pattern.  Fasten off, weave in your ends.

  1. Would this be a good stitch to use for the sides of a reusable grocery bag?
