Loop Stitch Crochet- An Easy Step-by-Step Tutorial

The Crochet Loop Stitch is a fun way to add texture to your crochet and craft projects. I’ve always been obsessed with texture, so when I started working on the Hisi Sensory Toy, I knew I had to incorporate this loopiness.

You can only work the loop stitch on one side, so I’m working a single crochet row in between. You can use a slip stitch row if you want to make the loop stitches denser. However, I would recommend being comfortable with the single crochet row between before trying out the slip stitch as it’s a bit tighter to work with.

Loop stitches are always worked on the wrong side of your work. They take a bit of practice to get right but once you do, you’ll be hooked (or should I say looped ?)

Repeat these steps throughout the entire row. The next row will be worked in single crochet. In other words, you’ll work a repeat of row 1-2 throughout.
