Linked stitches are connected to one another through the posts and form a textured fabric with minimal holes. This stitch is perfect for garments, socks, cushions, and many more projects. To make a linked stitch you will insert your hook from top to bottom into the horizontal bar of the stitch that you made. There are three variations of linked stitches.

  • hdc
  • dc
  • treble

NOTE: When you crochet the linked stitch you will always have to join, this stitch does not work up well in a spiral.
