Dash Stitch Crochet Pattern

The Dash Stitch is a beautiful lightly textured crochet stitch for blankets.

The dash stitch is a fun stitch creating a little texture that looks (to me) like vertical dashed lines. The backside looks nearly like plain single crochet fabric.

It is therefore a great stitch for projects such as blankets, cozy winter garments and accessories. I can easily imagine it for snuggly winter mittens for example.


The patterns are written for a 15cm by 15cm / 6” by 6” square.


  • st = stitch
  • ch = chain
  • sc = single crochet
  • dc = double crochet
  • fpdc = front post double crochet

Stitch Multiple

The pattern needs a multiple of 4 + 3 number of stitches; your starting chain will be a multiple of 4 + 4 for an extra turning chain.


The gauge for this pattern is 15 st by 17.5 rows in stitch pattern for a 10 cm by 10 cm square (4” by 4”).

The Actual Crochet Stitch Pattern

With your 5 mm / US H-8 hook ch 24,

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc 2, [dc, sc 3] across, turn. <23 st>

Row 2: Ch 1, sc 3, [fpdc, sc 3] across, turn.

Row 3: Ch 1, sc, dc, sc, [sc 2, dc, sc] across, turn.

Row 4: Ch 1, sc, fpdc, sc, [sc 2, fpdc, sc] across, turn.

Row 5: Sc 3, [dc, sc 3] across, turn.

Repeat Row 2 to 5 until you reach 15 cm /6″. Finish on a row 2 or 4.

Fasten off and weave in the ends.
