Galaxy Stitch Crochet Winter Scarf



Video Tutorial: Galaxy Stitch Scarf

Galaxy Stitch Crochet Winter Scarf


Skill Level: Beginner/Intermediate

Written by Teresa Richardson

The following is how you would create the stitch from text only. I am describing it at the beginning so when I write the pattern I can refer to the galaxy stitch with the abbreviation of GS.


Size I/5.5mm crochet hook

Galaxy Stitch on Foundation: Insert your hook in the joining eye of the stitch you just completed, pull the yarn through, you have 2 loops on your hook, wrap the yarn over your hook, insert the hook through the first single crochet, pull, the yarn through, you have 4 loops on your hook, wrap the yarn over your hook, skip a stitch, insert the hook through the next single crochet, pull the yarn through, you have 6 loops on your hook. Wrap the yarn over your hook and pull through all 6 loops. Wrap the yarn over your hook and pull through one more time to secure.

Galaxy Stitch in Previous Stitches: Insert your hook in the joining eye of the stitch you just completed, pull the yarn through, you have 2 loops on your hook, wrap the yarn over your hook, insert the hook through the center joining eye of the previous stitch, pull, the yarn through, you have 4 loops on your hook, wrap the yarn over your hook, insert the hook through the the center joining eye of the next previous stitch, pull the yarn through, you have 6 loops on your hook. Wrap the yarn over your hook and pull through all 6 loops. Wrap the yarn over your hook and pull through one more time to secure.

Chain 2 Changing rows: At the end of each row, you will chain 2, insert your hook in the 2nd chain from the hook pull the yarn through, leave the yarn on your hook, you will have 2 chains on your hook. This will provide the step up to the next row and a chain to work your first galaxy stitch.

32 Foundation Single Crochet, ch 2 turn.

Row 1-7: Color A -Work 16 GS across

Row 8-14: Color B - Work 16 GS across

Repeat rows 1-14: for the length of the scarf with color changes every 7 rows.

The pattern stitch is the same each row.
