Featured Stitch: Loop Stitch

Loop Stitch: (Abbreviation: loop st, lp st)
Loop stitch is a form of single crochet. Using your finger, you create a loop on the side opposite of which you’re working (aka the “wrong” side). It can take a little practice before you get the hang of it, so don’t be discouraged if it’s frustrating at first!

One row of loop stitch on a foundation of 2 rows of single crochet.

Here, I’ve pulled up the loops so you can see the foundation rows.

Wrap the yarn from front to back over your index finger. Insert hook into next stitch, grab the looped yarn from behind your finger, and draw the yarn through the stitch. (2 loops on hook). Yarn over hook, and draw through both loops on hook. (1 loop made. You should have 1 loop left on your hook.)

Note: I, personally, like to put the hook in the stitch before I wrap it over my index finger. I also take my finger out after I’ve yarned over, and pulled through the stitch, but this can also make your loops uneven if you’re not careful!
