The Solomon’s Knot Stitch crochet pattern is another one of those crochet stitches that everyone should give a try!
The Solomon’s Knot stitch is sometimes referred to as the Lover’s Knot and it is a beautiful and lacy stitch design that is created by working “knots” into elongated chain loop stitches.
I tried this stitch several years ago in a project but quickly put it down. The stitch initially took a lot of patience and practice. The most challenging part of the stitch is getting all of your loops to be roughly the same size, and to find a size of loop that you are comfortable working in.
If you are working this stitch in a particular pattern, the pattern may tell you how long you will have to draw up your loop. If not working a particular pattern, I am most comfortable pulling the loop up about a 1/2 inch. Do not worry! I will explain all in the video tutorial below.
For this tutorial today I will be using a small amount of cotton yarn. This yarn is a worsted weight yarn called Pima Cotton by Lion Brand Yarn. I will also be using a 5 mm crochet hook. The hook you will see me using in the video tutorial below is a Clover Soft Touch Hook also available on Lion Brand through the link above.
Thank you so much for stopping by! If you enjoy learning new crochet stitches, you will find many more in the “Crochet Stitches” category here on Rich Textures Crochet, or you may wish to check out the Bouillon Crochet Stitch. I update this website with a new crochet stitch every week!

This stitch is worked in rows in this tutorial. You may work it in one colour or many. I will be working the stitch in a solid colour.
To begin, make a slip knot and then a foundation chain. For your foundation chain you will need a multiple of four stitches plus two stitches (4+2).
Sc in the 2nd ch from your hook and in each ch across. Ch 1, turn.
Sc in the 1st st, *work 2 knot-sts (See “Stitches and Abbreviations”), sk the next 3 sts, sc in the next st; Rpt from * across. Ch 4 (Counts as a tr st), turn.
Work 1 knot-st, sc in the top of the next knot-st, *work 2 knot-sts, sk the next knot-st, sc in the top of the next knot st; Rpt from * across until one knot-st remains, work 1 knot-st, tr in the final sc. Ch 1, turn.
And that’s it!
For the rest of the pattern simply repeat rows 2 (Skipping the next knot st, sc and working the next knot in the top of the next) and 3 for as long as you would like. Fasten off, weave in your ends.
Add a Final Edge:
Sc in the 1st st, *ch 3, sk the next s-knot, sc in the top of the next s-knot; Rpt from * across, ending with an sc in the top of the final turning ch. Ch 1, turn.
Sc in the 1st st, *3 sc in the next ch-3 sp, sc in the next st; Rpt from * across. Fasten off, weave in your ends.
