The Reverse Blanket Stitch

The reverse blanket stitch is a beginner-friendly crochet stitch that is made using only chain, single crochet, and double crochet. This pretty crochet stitch is an easy one-stitch repeat and is perfect for a variety of different projects.

Some crochet projects you can make with this stitch include blankets, pillows, cardigans, or shrugs.

I absolutely love this stitch and can’t wait to share it with all of you. It’s so simple and pretty! This stitch is similar to the Suzette crochet stitch, except you add 1 extra double crochet and put it in reverse order.

So if you can make the Suzette Crochet Stitch, you can definitely make this crochet stitch.

The perfect crochet wave stitch border

One of my favorite things about this stitch is that it creates a pretty crochet wave stitch border all on its own. So you don’t have to add any extra stitches. The double crochets at the end of the row creates an indent that eventually turns into little waves.

Some crochet projects that I’ve made with this stitch include a shrug and two blankets.

Awww, thank you so much! I'm so glad the videos are helpful and that you love the patterns. It brings me so much joy seeing others enjoy the patterns. šŸ˜Š That's so funny, my mom crochets the same way too. šŸ˜Š Sometimes will compare our work and it nearly looks identical.
