The best thing about learning to crochet? All stitches essentially build off what you've already learned. Once you've mastered the basic, must-know stitches (such as chain stitches and single crochets), you've got a solid foundation.

The spike stitch is one of those things that gives you a lot of bang for your buck: It looks complicated and advanced, but is actually super simple. Gotta love that! When you create a regular single crochet stitch, as you know, you work directly into the stitch in the previous row. A spike happens when you form that same stitch, but work it two, three, or four rows below. Different lengths of the stitch can then be combined in a variety of ways to make fun, geometric designs. Learn how this method can add a dramatic, graphic design to your project.
