Finally, it is time to get to some new stitch patterns! All of the stitches this month feature a particular crochet stitch: the Puff Stitch. Today we’re going to learn how to crochet the Harvest Stitch…it’s super easy, I promise!
As I said before, the Harvest Stitch, along with the other November stitches, utilizes one of my favorite stitches, the Puff Stitch. Puff stitches can be used in a variety of ways, and there are a lot of variations of this stitch out there. I want to give you 4 simple but interesting variations!
So, the Harvest stitch uses 2 puff stitches separated by a chain space to create a pretty v-stitch. Then, these puff v’s are stacked on top of each other and separated by 2 dc to make a neat “harvesty” look!
If you’re new to the puff stitch, do not worry. I have created a video that shows you specifically how to make the puff stitch – see below! This information is vital to understanding the Harvest Stitch.

One other great thing about this stitch pattern: it only has 1 repeating row! Once you learn that row, you can just keep repeating it over and over again, and the result is this beautiful stitch! I don’t know about you, but I love stitches that are easy enough to do while watching Netflix, but are still different from the simple crochet stitches.

Harvest Stitch Photo Tutorial
Below you can see the beginning of Row 1. Start by making a chain 3 and double crocheting in the next fsc. Then, make a puff stitch, chain 2, and another puff stitch in the same fsc.
Skip 2 fsc, then make 2 regular double crochet. Continue repeating across Row 1 so it looks like this:
Row 2 will be largely the same, except we’ll be working the ch-2 spaces from the row below.
Start by chaining 3 again, and double crocheting in the next dc. This time for the puff stitches, you will work in the ch-2 space from Row 1. Then, double crochet in the next 2 dc.
This stitch is really so simple because now you just have to repeat row 2 to your desired length!
I hope you have enjoyed learning this fun stitch pattern.
