In this photo tutorial I am going to show you How to Crochet the Alpine Stitch! I love this textured stitch and the design it creates. I’ve used this stitch in some of my designs like the Daytrip Cinch Backpack and the Pinetop Beanie.

H/5.0 mm hook
Pattern Notes & Stitches to Know
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
dc – double crochet
tr – treble crochet
fptr – front post treble crochet
rs – right side
ws – wrong side

– ch 1 does not count as sc
– ch 2 does not count as dc
– This stitch does curl in the corners naturally. Blocking and/or a border can help with this.
– Any weight yarn can be used for this stitch. Adjust the hook size accordingly.
ch any even number (for this swatch I chained 20)
Row 1 (ws): sc in 2nd ch from the hook and across
Row 2 (rs): ch 2, turn, dc in each stitch across
Row 3 (ws): ch 1, turn, sc in each stitch across
Row 4 (rs): ch 2, turn, dc in first stitch,
*fptr in the dc in the row below the next stitch,
dc in next sc*
repeat from * to * across
Row 5 (ws): ch 1, turn, sc in each stitch across
Row 6 (rs): ch 2, turn, dc in first 2 stitches, *fptr in the dc in the row below the next stitch,
dc in next sc*
repeat from * to * across to the last stitch, dc in last stitch
Row 7 (ws): ch 1, turn, sc in each stitch across
Repeat rows 4 – 7 for pattern. End with a sc row.
And that’s all there is to it! I hope you love this stitch!
