Cat’s Eye Crochet Stitch

The Cat’s Eye Crochet stitch is an easy crochet stitch with small openings. It combines basic crochet stitches to form an interesting texture and look.

The cat’s eye stitch is a simple stitch with small openings. It’s great for blankets, in garments as a border or for a winter scarf.


The pattern is written for a 15cm by 15cm / 6” by 6” square.

You can easily adapt the size to your desired project size. The pattern needs a multiple of 3 number of stitches; your starting chain will be a multiple of 3+2 for an extra turning chain.


The gauge for this pattern, in alternating rows of dc, is 20 st by 11 rows for a 10 cm by 10 cm square (4” by 4”).


  • st = stitch
  • ch = chain
  • sc = single crochet
  • dc = double crochet
  • skip = miss

Special Techniques

Back loop only: Work the stitch as you normally would but instead of working through both loops, only go through the back loop.
