The Wide Spike Stitch crochet pattern is a wonderfully thick crochet stitch pattern that is very easy to work!

The pattern is made up of half double crochet stitches and slip stitches.  But if you’re worried about having to work into the slip stitches, don’t! The slip stitches are simply there to add a bit of texture and you will be working over top of them and into the spaces between the half double crochet stitches below.  Be sure to check out the free video tutorial below!

The Materials:

For this tutorial today I will be using a small amount of Pima Cotton Yarn by Lion Brand Yarn in one colour. It is a worsted weight, 100% cotton yarn. The hook shown in the video below is a 5 mm birchwood crochet hook by Rowan Yarns.  However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose, even experiment with stripes of colour!

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, such as the Puff Blanket Stitch | How to Crochet and pin this one for later!
