Little Waves Stitch Pattern Video Tutorial
The Little Waves stitch pattern is simple, and repetitive - but very pretty, with enough variety to keep you going! I love stitch patterns where you pretty much work the same stitches into the rows below - but they change as you go.
Right side vs wrong side with this pattern is a matter of preference, and how many rows you make of each color, if you're switching colors. If you're making an even number of rows in each color, the RS/WS will be more obvious than if you do odd rows. This is because of how the post stitches show up on the "wrong" side.
In this video tutorial I used Lion Brand Cotton-Ease yarn and a US-I, mm hook from Furls Fiberarts (order your own HERE!).
This stitch pattern is made in a multiple of 8, plus 3, plus 2 for the turning chain. So if you aren't using the Chainless Starting Double Crochet (click HERE for tutorial) for the first row, then you'll starting with a multiple of 8, plus 5. If you are using the CSDC, start with a multiple of 8 plus 3.
I hope you've enjoyed learning how to make the Little Waves Stitch Pattern! Now you're all set to make the rug - and the coordinating pattern set to come out soon! Thanks so much for watching and reading!

I just wanted to tell you how thankful I am for this tutorial! I stumbled across the link on Pinterest, and the timing was definitely meant to be. I just received a few boxes of my late grandmother's unfinished afghans, and the one that is nearest to completion was crocheted using this stitch!!! I am so grateful for your tutorial that will now enable me to finish her work and cherish her legacy.
Oh how amazing! <3 What a wonderful story, thank you Melanie!
Thank you so much for sharing your tutorial videos! I crochet something new every week using your new stitches.,
😀 Thank you so much June! I'm so glad you enjoy them!
Hi, thank you so much for this video--I have loved doing this stitch. I have made a little throw cushion cover in a lovely chunky duck egg blue. It there a final row I could use to square it off if u know what I mean? Thanks again.
Hi Angela! Thank you! 😀 I have a final squaring off row as the last row of the rug - https://www.mooglyblog.com/little-waves-crochet-rug/
Thank you so much!! I can't believe I didn't spot that myself!! Thanks again, Angela
I've loved this pattern for a while and just began it to match my new shower curtain. I have a quick comment on Row 1. Should it say dc in next 2 chains at the beginning of the row, so that the row begins with 3 dc? Thanks so much for your website. I'm also working on your CAL.....love it!!
Hi Judy! Thank you! The skipped 3 ch at the beginning count as a dc st, so after dc in the 4th ch you have two "dc" sts, then just dc in the next ch for the 3rd one. Is that what you meant?
I make baby blankets for a local charity that works with a group of pediatric nurses at our local hospital. Because many of the items are given to infants in the neonatal unit, they request patterns with no large holes in which tiny fingers and toes can get snagged. I love working with texture rather than color so I am always on the lookout for stitch patterns that meet these requirements. This makes #2 from your blog this week. And HOW I WISH your tutorials were available when I was teaching myself to crochet @ 40 years ago. Thanks Tamara!
<3 Thank you so much Pat! For all of it!
Do you have this pattern in written form? I love your tutorials, but by the time I get ready to work them, I can't remember the entire tutorial.
Thank you for your time and assistance with this.
