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.
