Celtic Weave Stitch – Pattern Description
In today’s post, I am sharing a tutorial for a unique crochet stitch: Celtic Weave Stitch.
The Celtic Weave Stitch is a two-row repeat crochet pattern made with front and back post trebles that looks like basket weaving.
It works great for pot holders, baby blankets, modern afghans, handbags, and any other project that requires a thick, warm, and textured fabric.
This tutorial is made for both beginners and seasoned crocheters, it has a step-by-step tutorial with photos and a video for those of you who are visual learners. Scroll down to see how this stitch is made.

- ch3 at the beginning of rows counts as a dc
- stitches contained within ** are the repeat section for that row
Starting Chain: This pattern requires you to chain multiples of 4chs + 3ch. My starting chain is 27chs.
Row 1: Hdc in 2nd ch from the hook, hdc in all remaining chains, turn = 26sts
Row 2: ch3, *sk2, fptr around the next 2 stitch posts below, go back to the first stitch you skipped and make a fptr around its post, fptr in around the post of the next skipped st*, repeat from * until you have 1st left, dc in the last st, turn.
Row 3: ch3, bptr around the stitch posts of the next 2sts, *sk2, bptr around the next 2 stitch posts below, go back to the first stitch you skipped and make a bptr around its post, bptr in around the post of the next skipped st*, repeat from * until you have 3sts left, bptr around the stitch posts of the next 2sts, dc in the last st, turn.
Repeat rows 2 & 3 until you have the required length.
