I recently got an email from a reader asking me to do a video tutorial for Padded Single Crochet. Well that was a new one to me! I did some digging and learned as much as I could about the Padded Single Crochet – and now I’ll teach you!

Essentially, the padded single crochet is a very specific form of spike stitch. You crochet “over” the previous row, enclosing it in single crochet stitches. This creates a puffy, padded, but very stable stitch, that looks almost identical on both sides!
It’s a very interesting stitch, and I can see how it could come in handy while designing! I found two different designers using it, but now that I know about it I might have to use it too. I hope it inspires you as well!
