The crochet Crab Stitch or the Reverse Single Crochet is such a beautiful crochet stitch to finish of crochet projects. The border it creates is really simple, but at the same time looks really good.
The Crab Stitch edging resembles the look of a rope.
I’ve used this stitch for the Nordic Textured Coasters, so I thought this was the right occasion to create a tutorial for it.
Let’s dive into the stitch tutorial!
FOR THIS TUTORIAL I USED:
- crab st = crab stitch
- reverse sc = reverse single crochet
- st = stitch(es)
- This pattern is a multiple of 1 stitch & can be used as edging for any crochet project.
