The Royal Ridge Stitch is an easy crochet stitch that features delicate ridges. The ridges are very easy to create!
This crochet stitch would look lovely in a variety of crochet projects. As there are no particular required stitch counts, the stitch is quite flexible making it an excellent stitch for almost anything! As I am a huge fan of crochet blankets, it would definitely be a go to stitch, especially as there is texture on both sides. It would also work well in crochet sweaters and cardigans! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

This Royal Ridge Crochet Stitch is worked entirely in half double crochet stitches after working your foundation row of single crochet. What creates the texture is the placement of the half double crochet stitch. Usually when you work a half double crochet stitch, you will work the stitch by inserting it under both of the top loops of the next stitch in the previous row.
However, when you work the Royal Ridge Crochet Stitch, you will work the half double crochet into the “third loop” of the stitch below. The third loop is the horizontal bar or loop that can be found directly below the front loop of the stitch below. If you are uncertain of where to find the stitch, be sure to check out the free video tutorial that can be found following the written pattern 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 Wooden Streamline crochet hook by Furls Crochet. However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose.

The Royal Ridge Crochet Stitch
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 may use any multiple of stitches and then add one for your foundation chain.
Single crochet in the second chain from your hook and in each stitch across. Chain one (this does not count as a stitch) and turn your work.
Half Double Crochet in the first stitch and in each stitch across. Chain one (this does not count as a stitch) and turn.
Half Double Crochet in the third loop of each stitch across (if you are unfamiliar with the “third loop,” be sure to check out the above discussion and watch the free video tutorial below!). Chain one (does not count as a stitch) and turn your work.
And that’s it!
You will now repeat your row three until your work reached the desired height. Fasten off and weave in your ends.
