Learn the Knit-Like Crochet Waistcoat Stitch Easily with this FREE Video Tutorial!

You won’t believe this stitch is crocheting, not knitting!

Best of all it’s easy to learn! You many have seen hats, scarves, mittens and even cardigans and ponchos that seem to be knitted — you’d never know they were made with the crochet waistcoat stitch. You’d think it was the classic stockinette stitch in knitting but it’s actually all achieved with a crochet hook.

So what’s the secret? It is the waistcoat stitch which is also known as the center single crochet stitch. It creates a beautiful texture as you can see in the photo above.
