How to Crochet the Thermal Stitch
The Thermal Stitch is a popular and versatile crochet stitch that creates a thick, textured fabric perfect for cold weather accessories such as scarves, blankets, and hats. This stitch is achieved by working in the back loop only and alternating between single crochet and double crochet stitches in each row. The result is a dense, reversible fabric that looks the same on both sides. With the help of the step-by-step instructions and video tutorial provided in this article, you can easily learn how to crochet the Thermal Stitch and use it in your next cozy project. So grab your hook and some yarn, and let's get started!
Starting Chain: This pattern doesn’t require any multiples, just make a chain the length you require. My starting chain is 26chs long.
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each of the remaining chs, ch1, turn.
Row 2: Turn your work to the side. Insert your hook through the back and 3 rd loops and make a single crochet. Repeat in every stitch until the end of the row, ch1, turn.
Row 3: Insert the hook through the back loop and the leftover parallel loop at the back (the front loop from the previous row) and make a single crochet. Repeat in every stitch until the end of the row, ch1, turn.
Repeat row 3 until you have the required length for your project.
Final Row: Insert your hook through the entire stitch AND the leftover parallel loop at the back (the front loop from the previous row) and make a single crochet. Repeat every stitch until the end of the row. Fasten off.
