Standing Stitch | Seamless Colour Joins

Standing Stitch | Seamless Colour Joins

A standing stitch serves as a seamless method to begin a new round or row without relying on a slip stitch or chain as a starting point. Particularly handy for colour changes or stitches taller than a double crochet, this technique creates a stitch that ‘stands’ alone, without the need for a base chain or slip stitch join.
The method varies depending on the stitch you're working with, but here's a general idea of how you might start a standing treble crochet:

Written Tutorial 

  1. Begin by either placing a slip knot onto your hook or wrapping the yarn around once in the usual direction and securing it with your finger.

  2. Yarn over (as you would for a normal treble) and insert hook into stitch.

  3. Yarn over and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook).

  4. Yarn over, pull through two loops, yarn over, and pull through the remaining two loops (or loop and slip knot).

  5. Continue crocheting along the row or round as usual.
