22 Innovative Crochet Stitches and Patterns

This is an amazing collection of 22 beautiful crochet patterns from some of the best crochet designers! These are beautiful innovative crochet stitches used in creative ways.


What do you do when you lose your crojo? We have all been there at some point, right? I have had many suggestions over the years on how to get it back.

However, what I have found works the best is keep looking at different projects, stitches and ideas until I see the one I really fancy or simple “must try”.

That is the easiest way to get the inspiration back and pick up your crochet hook again.

I love trying new and exciting innovative crochet stitches. Even if you do not want to commit to a large project. You can still try a brand new stitch pattern and make a square.

This little crochet square can then become something functional. You can use it as a washcloth or dishcloth around kitchen. If it is a lovely textured stitch, it can become make up remover or a simple face scrubby. The possibilities are endless.

I have rounded up some amazing crochet stitch patterns used in an innovative way. There are great variations for a basic crochet stitches that will elevate your project to a whole new level.

  1. Veronika,
    Thank you so much for all the crochet patterns. I’ve been keeping track of the costs involved for each of the patterns. Three of the patterns I already had, but the astounding cost of the remaining 19 patterns totaled $70.94! With the other 3 patterns included it would be $88.08!! Now I need to get busy and start making all those projects and learning the stitches. Great learning incentive.

    Thanks once more,
    Claudia
