The Fan Stitch Crochet Tutorial showcase a crochet stitch with small fans stacking on top of each other.

This crochet stitch looks just as beautiful from both sides, making it great for all sorts of crochet projects.

What’s so great about this crochet stitch is the fact that it features only basic crochet stitches and makes it an easy stitch pattern to learn.

You can find the fan stitch featured in the Lunt Twisted headband crochet pattern.

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