Spider Stitch Afghan Square

My spider stitch tutorial is one of my most popular, so I thought I would actually create a pattern using that stitch.  The square was made for the Baker’s Dozen Group on Ravelry and is 12″ square.

Finished Size:   12” square

Materials Used:

  • 3 oz. – #4 worsted weight yarn (I used Bernat Waverly)

Pattern Notes: If you would like to change the size of your square, increase/decrease 2 stitches at a time.



Row 1:  sc in 2nd ch from hook, * skip next ch, (sc, ch1, sc) in next ch, repeat from * to last 2 ch, skip next ch, sc in last ch, turn.

Row 2:  ch1, sc in 1st sc, skip first 2 sc, (sc, ch1, sc) in each ch1 space, sc in top of beginning ch2, turn.

Repeat Row 2 until project is square.

Fasten off.

Block to 12” square.


Happy Crocheting!
