The Granny Stripe Stitch is a timeless stitch that every crocheter should have in their back pocket! Learn to crochet this iconic stitch along with me in the photo and/or video tutorial below!
Hello! I’m so happy you’re here! Today we are going to over the Granny Stripe Stitch. The Granny Stripe stitch is similar to the granny square in that it is comprised of three double crochet clusters but are arranged in a straight line rather than in a square.
This is a very versatile stitch and can be used for many projects such as blankets, dishcloths, wraps, shawls, placemats and so much more! Similar to the Granny Stripe Stitch is the Granny Ripple Stitch. I recently shared tutorials on this stitch and you can check them out here and here if interested!
This stitch looks best when worked in multiple colors, so grab your favorites and learn to crochet this stitch right along with me.

*The Granny Stripe Stitch is worked in multiples of 3 plus 2 additional chains for your foundation chain.
Ch 17 (my multiple of 3 is 15, plus an additional 2)
Row 1: Starting in 2nd ch from hook, sc across the row; turn.
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as a dc), make 1 dc in same stitch, sk 2 st, *make 3 dc in next st, sk 2 st; repeat from * to end making 2 dc’s in the last st; turn.
Row 3: Ch 3 (counts as a dc), *make 3 dc’s in next cluster sp; repeat from * through laster cluster sp, make 1 dc in the top of the turning ch from prev row; turn.
Row 4: Ch 3 (counts as a dc), make 1 dc in sp between your last dc and cluster from prev row, *make 3 dc in next cluster sp; repeat from * to end of row; make 2 dc in space between cluster and ch 3 from prev row; turn.
Repeat Rows 3 and 4 until you reach your desired length.
Step 1: Make a foundation chain with a multiple of 3 plus 2. For this example ch 17 (my multiple of 3 is 15, plus an additional 2)
Step 2: Starting in 2nd ch from hook, sc across the row. Turn.
Step 3: ch 3
Step 4: Make a dc in the 1st stitch
Step 5: *Skip 2 stitches, make 3 dc in next stitch; repeat from * until you reach your last 3 stitches
Step 6: Skip 2 stitches, make 2 dc in the last stitch, but stop before completing the last yarn over on your last dc. Complete last yarn over with your new color. Cut old color and turn.
Step 7: ch 3
Step 8: Make 3 dc in the next cluster space
Step 9: Make 3 dc in each cluster sp across the row
Step 10: make a dc in the top of your turning chain from the previous row. Change color using same technique referenced above. Turn.
Step 11: ch 3
Step 12: Make a dc in sp between your last dc and cluster from prev row
Step 13: Make 3 dc in next cluster space
Step 14: make 3 dc in each cluster sp across row
Step 15: Make 2 dc in space between the starting ch 3 and 1st cluster from prev row; turn.
Repeat Steps 7 – 15 until you reach your desired length!
