Learn the Crochet Arrow Stitch

Create arrow stitches within your afghans, scarves and any other concepts you may have. This article will have the details on how to do this with some helpful tips.

An example of a project with this type of stitch is the Aran Hearts Throw by Red Heart. Designed by Bonnie Barker.

To keep this stitch in balance, you must crochet in multiples of 4 when creating the chain. Keep counting in sets of 4 until you get to the desired length. When you get the size of chain that you prefer, simple add 3 chains at the end. This will allow you to keep your stitches in balance throughout your project.

Written Instructions

  1. Ch in multiples of 4 until you get the desired length chain. Add 3 extra chains at the end.
  2. (Right Side) Treble Crochet, in the 7th chain from the hook. From the 7th chain, count back 3 chains and begin to *double crochet in the next 3 chains by moving the treble in front of your work and inserting your hook behind the trebles when inserting into the chain. (See video if you need a better description). Count to the 4th empty chain and place a treble crochet and repeat * all the way across. Final stitch is a double crochet.
  3. (Wrong Side) Chain 3, * Skip to the 4th skip and treble crochet, double crochet into each of the 3 skipped stitches. When double crocheting, work in front of the treble. This pushes the treble back to be on the right side. Repeat * Across. Double Crochet into the final stitch.
  4. (Right Side) In the video, I put a SC row across. Simple Ch 1, SC into each st across. This is optional.
  5. (Wrong Side) Chain 3, * Skip to the 4th skip and treble crochet, double crochet into each of the 3 skipped stitches. When double crocheting, work in front of the treble. This pushes the treble back to be on the right side. Repeat * Across. Double Crochet into the final stitch.
  6. Repeat Rows 3 to complete this arrow.

You just need to know what side you are working on to know where to work with the double crochets. You will either work in front of the treble or behind it.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.

    I want to use a variation of this stitch from Creachick on Pinterest. I understand the stitch, yours and her variation. However, I don’t understand how to incense stitches on side with sc and how to decrease by crocheting one less dc on outside. I know your stitch is a variation, but how would you increase and decrease this stitch. Thanks so much. I hope you or someone in your group can help.

    Mikey and Crochet Crowd: “Bang On” in so many effective ways: visual, intuitive (I can do it) response just to give a couple of examples. Mikey once mentioned his choice to give without hesitation and the ‘pay-off’ being personal satisfaction. UL says: if we are not willing to give we will not receive. Imagine it all begins with a simple slip knot. Keep on keeping!
