Hello everyone, This drunken granny crochet stitch might be a totally new stitch to you. That’s good!
I’m trying to include more fundamental crochet tutorials on the blog, including learning new crochet stitches. There are a LOT of stitches out there, and while I don’t know them all, I’d like to share the ones I do. The ones I don’t, we can learn together as we go!
A beginner friendly stitch to add to your crochet repertoire: The crochet drunken granny stitch
I do love the name of this stitch🤣. Lets cheers with grandma and crochet together. This is a very simple, beginner friendly stitch. It’s just a one row repeat that you can make many different things from.
You can use the same stitch with multiple colors or single. For the following written instructions, I’m using one color. If you want to try with multiple colors, you can check out the video tutorial for this stitch as well.
If you like this yarn and would like an easy beginner friendly crochet pattern for it, here’s my Crochet drawstring pom pom bag project.
Hope you have fun. See you next time. Happy crocheting!
