How To: Crochet The Side Saddle Stitch - Easy Tutorial

A couple of weeks ago Lion Brand sent me a large box filled to the brim with colourful yarns and wools, the best present for any avid crocheter! One of the skeins of yarn immediately caught my eye, with it's luscious colour and soft cotton. Within moments I had my pretty wooden crochet hooks out and I was fiddling around with multiple different crochet stitches.

The Side Saddle Stitch was one of these stitches, as the design has such a distinctive texture to it, making cotton yarn the perfect fit. I only recently learned about this stitch myself, but I was excited to share it with you all as I'm sure you'll be just as eager to learn this stitch so you can use it when crocheting lovely scarves and unique afghans!

If you're eager to learn how to crochet the "Side Saddle Stitch", this helpful video tutorial will guide you through all the necessary steps (in an easy to follow speed) as you continue on your ever-growing crochet journey!

Are there any other crochet stitches or techniques you'd love to learn?
I'm always open to new ideas and inspiration when it comes to 
sharing crochet with the world!


  1. It is easier for me to learn new stitches with written instructions. Why don't you try giving them. Would be much appreciated.

  2. How about a tutorial on the puff ladder stitch?
    This was in one of my patterns but the author didn't include how to do it. (I really dislike lazy authors! It was deliberate--directions said to go online and find it myself; no link.)

  3. I also need written instructions. I'll have to save this video and then play and pause and write until I have it down on paper. I really really want this pattern so I'll take the extra time to get it written down myself.

  4. Hi Olivia thank you so much for all you tutorials and patterns I have learnt so much from these you are truely a STAR

  5. Thanks just been watching part of your video, brill, will def try this stictch (once I've completed some of my WIP's).

  6. This is a beautiful pattern! Quite unique. What do you think would be a fun project to use this pattern?
