How to Crochet: Knit | Waistcoat Stitch | This is a knit-like stitch you can work graphs & fair isle patterns with ease!

The knit stitch is a crochet stitch that looks like a knit stitch.  It’s sooooo simple, you won’t even believe how simple it is.  I’ve fallen in love with it. 

It’s also known as the waistcoat stitch.  I’m not sure why there are so many names for it, but either way – It’s a lot of fun.

I’ve created two videos – the first one works the knit stitch in the round.

The second video covers how to add and change colors and gives you a few tips on how to keep your yarn from twisting while you work alternating colors.

I used this stitch in the Keep SHINE-ing Beanie & Fair Isle Slouchy beanie patterns.

I would love to see all your creations using this stitch.  Head over Instagram or Facebook and post some pics!

I hope you enjoy this tutorial, and if you have any questions or comments, please leave them below, I would love to talk crochet!


What is your favorite stitch?

What is your favorite type of crochet project?

I recently asked some of my crochet groups what they like to crochet the most and I was surprised to find out it was Afghans!  Then hats & beanies were a close second.

I haven’t delved into the world of Afghans very often, but I absolutely love creating C2C graphs.  I only wish I had more time to design, and create ALL my patterns for graphs.  Soon I will be uploaded a bunch of C2C graphs.

What do you want my next pattern to be?  Leave a comment below and I’ll do my best to create something fun for you to make!

Challenge me!

Happy Crocheting!
