If you’re looking for a textured crochet stitch, that’s easy to learn, the Extra Extended Single Crochet Stitch is perfect for you!

It’s almost the same as a extended single crochet, however it has one extra step, that creates the most beautiful texture. That means this stitch has two extra steps compared to the regular single crochet.

You can find this stitch in the Gradvis sweater and the Top Down Nordic Sweater, worked in the round. However for this tutorial you will find the stitch showcased worked in rows.

I’ve also included a way for you to grab the printable version in a bundle, more details about that further down.

EXTRA EXTENDED SINGLE CROCHET STITCH TUTORIAL:


Find the written description, photo tutorial, then video tutorial below.

Written description:

In next stitch draw up a loop, yarn over, pull through 1, yarn over, pull through 1, yarn over, pull through last 2 loops.

*When crocheting the next extra extended single crochet stitch, pull the hook with the loop & stitch down when inserting the hook in the next stitch, this will make the previous stitch break in the middle & create texture.

Start rows by turning and crocheting the extra extended single crochet directly in the first stitch.

End rows with an extra extended single crochet in the last stitch and turn to work next row.

These patterns uses the stitch, but are worked in the round. That makes a slightly different look, as the texture will be created on the right side at all times.
