HOW TO MAKE THE KNIT CROCHET WAISTCOAT STITCH?
This gorgeous crochet waistcoat stitch is a single crochet which creates the effect of a very smooth stitch. You can work on this stitch using circular knitting or rotary rows. The hook input technique is slightly below the top of the loop. The hook then splits or “spreads” the threads. You must use a 5.00mm crochet hook. You can even use two different colors that go well together like the silver and white!

I just love the texture of this stitch, it’s so versatile and elegant that it works very well for a variety of projects such as cardigans, scarves, hats, jumpers, sweaters, blanket granny patterns, fall jackets, cushion covers, book covers, water bottle covers, bags, and more!
The crochet waistcoat stitch is also great because it is double sided so you can switch it up by adding embellishments on one side and it’s very useful for stopping the neckline on a sweater or bottom of a garment. It maintains its shape and is double sided which is very useful for maintaining a presentable texture for the projects mentioned above.
