Crochet Seed Stitch Scarf Pattern

As with many crochet stitches, the Seed Stitch has more than one ‘official’ name.

You will also find the Seed Stitch called:

  1. Woven Stitch
  2. Moss Stitch
  3. Linen Stitch
  4. Granite Stitch

So if you love the ease and look of this stitch when you search online, be sure to check the other crochet stitch name options too. The Seed Stitch is a very popular crochet stitch and it is so easy to use in your projects!


BONUS: You can make this scarf with any yarn and hook combination you have on hand.

Be sure to check my “You can use any yarn and hook to make this project!” section at the end of the post. I explain how you can use any yarn and hook to make your project. Plus, you can make this in any size, just by changing the number of starting chains, or the number of rows you crochet.

Helpful Tutorial

Notes:

  • Stitch multiple of 2 + 2 for the turning chain
  • Reversible
  • Ch 1 to turn does not count as a stitch and we do not work into it.
  • When I work into the foundation chain, I prefer working into the back bar (back bump) of the chain. You can work under the back loop only if you prefer.
  • To make this scarf longer, work more stitches. 
  • To make this scarf wider, chain more stitches. 
  • The yarn used for the photo tutorials in this post was King Cole Recycled Dishcloth Cotton with a 4 mm (G) crochet hook.
  • If you’d like to change colors for your rows, change to your new yarn color on the last yarn over of the last single crochet of any given row. You can either carry the yarn up the side (if you are using 3 colors) or finish off at the end of each row and have fringe (or weave in those ends).

Last Row Photo Tutorial for the Seed stitch Scarf Pattern

For the scarf pattern that I shared above I added one row of single crochet to the top and bottom of the project. I like having this straight solid edge for my scarves. These 2 single crochet rows are not part of the actual Crochet Seed Stitch Pattern.

You can work the seed stitch directly into the foundation chain. I’ve written out the instructions below to get you started in case you would like to try this method instead.

How to Crochet the Seed Stitch

Row 1: Ch an even number of chains. Sk the first ch, 1 sc in the next ch. *Ch 1, sk the next ch, 1 sc in the next ch**. Work from * to ** across. Ch 1, turn.

Row 2: 1 sc in the first st. *1 sc in the next ch1sp, ch 1, sk the next st**. Work from * to ** across to the last ch1sp. 1 sc in the ch1sp, 1 sc in the last st. Ch 1, turn.

Row 3: 1 sc in the first st. *Ch 1, sk the next st, 1 sc in the next ch1sp**. Work from * to ** across to the last 2 sc. Ch 1, sk the next st, 1 sc in the last st. Ch 1, turn.

Repeat Row 2 and Row 3 for pattern.

You can use any yarn and hook to make this project!

  1. With the yarn and hook you’ve chosen for the project, chain until you reach the width you’d like for your scarf (shawl, or blanket); or chain until your width measures 5 inches.
  2. Check that you number of chains can be divided by 2 evenly (to match the stitch multiple).
  3. Follow the pattern as written, repeating R3 and R4.
  4. Continue crocheting until your project is the length you would like it to be, or until it measures approximately 53 inches long.
  5. Add the final row of single crochet stitches (R187).
  6. Finish off and weave in your ends.
