How to Make Letters on Crochet

A question I get quite often is how to add letters on crochet. Unless the piece
is large enough, there is just not enough room to add a recognizable letter or number. Typically you may follow a chart and crochet the shape of the letter by changing color in the middles of a row. The integrity to the shape of the letter or number will be lost with smaller projects when following a chart. My solution is to use the embroidery chain stitch. There will be more options to choose from with the embroidery chain stitch. You will be able to use cursive or even mimic your own handwriting. If you have a larger space to work with, you may want to make two rows of chains for a bold or thicker letter that will stand out and be more visible.

  1. Thank you soooo much!
    I know you hear it again and again, but what you do is fantastic.
    This is my first comment to you. I found your blog last week and took some time to read all of your posts in order and became a follower (your 500th I believe).
    The info, answers, contests and videos you provide are unbelievable.
    I've been crocheting for 20 years (self-taught) and learned much the hard way. Thanks to you, many won't have that problem.
    I can honestly say I'm still learning, thanks to you!

    You and your offerings are held in high regard by many. Take care and thanks again!
