Larksfoot Stitch

The larksfoot stitch is a crochet stitch for the advanced. Have you noticed the larksfoot stitch all popping up in patterns lately? This crochet stitch is hugely popular at the moment, and I think you’ll see why. We’re not sure what a Lark’s foot actually looks like, but the stitch certainly is pretty. It’s ideal for working up in colored rows, although you could still use it in a single color, but it would loose some of the impact.

The larksfoot stitch is a very versatile stitch, useful for making blankets and afghans, hats, mittens and other wearables. The stitch likely got its name it looks very much like a bird’s foot, with its long central toe.

This stitch is most effective when you use bright, contrasting colors in a yarn that is a DK-weight or heavier. Once you get the hang of it, it’s really easy to do. Grab some spare yarn and a hook and work up this small swatch. But be warned — it’s addictive!
