Today we will teach you how to work a new crochet stitch. If you are planning to use some more autumnal yarns to make a scarf or cowl, the texture of this stitch is perfect—not too thick or dense. Perfect to keep you cozy on the early cold days. Won’t you crochet the alpine stitch with us?

For this tutorial, we’re using a skein of our yarn The Baby Alpaca in mustard, a yarn that will slide smoothly while knitting, and a 5mm crochet hook.

Before we explain how to work the stitch, here’s a list of the stitches that you should know in case you want to quickly review some:

Now let’s begin!

To make this stitch, start by working an even number of chains plus 3 more.

Row 1: work the first double crochet in the 5th chain and continue working in double crochet until the end of the chain row.

Row 2: chain 1, work 1 single crochet in the second stitch of the previous row and continue working in single crochet until the end of the row.

Row 3: chain 3, 1 double crochet through the back loop in the second double crochet stitch from the first row. Double crochet in the 3rd single crochet from the previous row (you should skip a stitch before the double crochet through the back loop occupies this space). Continue working in 1 double crochet through the back loop and 1 double crochet until you reach the end of the row. You should end this row in a double crochet.

Row 5: chain 3, then work 1 double crochet in the second single crochet stitch from the previous row, then work 1 double crochet through the back loop, hooking this into the equivalent double crochet from the third row. Work 1 double crochet, skipping 1 stitch from the row below (the stitch that is occupied by the double crochet through the back loop). Continue working, alternating between 1 double crochet through the back loop and 1 double crochet until you reach the end of the row. Remember that the row should end with 1 double crochet.

Repeat rows 2 to 5 as many times as you like to make your work longer.
