The Crochet Ribbing Stitch

Learn how to crochet the rib stitch with this photo tutorial!

How does one achieve a stretchy brim to a hat with crochet? The Crochet Ribbing Stitch, that’s how! This stitch, comprised of Half Double Crochet (hdc) and Camel Half Double Crochet (camel hdc) stitches, will prove to come in handy for several types of projects. Half Double Crochet stitches are more wiggly than double or single crochet which makes them the prefect in-between stitch for the occasion. Follow along with this photo tutorial and be sure to check out the patterns that feature this crochet ribbing at the end!

  • I have never used this stitch before but it is nice and easy. I really appreciate a stitch I don’t have to struggle to understand and redo over and over especially since I’m left handed, it’s always harder for us lefty’s. Thank you
