The Brick Stitch Crochet Tutorial is an amazing crochet stitch resembling a brick wall.

It features the spike single crochet stitch, which is a great way to create color breaks in big sections of color. Other than that it uses only basic stitches such as single crochet and chains.

It’s an easy crochet stitch, suitable for a crochet beginner.

The crochet brick stitch is great for patterns where you don’t want those gaps, such as some garments, scarves, crochet cowls, blankets, pot holders, baskets & much more.
