How to Crochet the Interlocking Fan Stitch

How are your stitches coming along? Today I’m excited to share with you April’s 3rd stitch: the Interlocking Fan Stitch!

One of my favorite things about crochet is the beauty and intricacy you can create combining different shell and fan stitches.

Today’s stitch is a configuration of small fan stitches alternated with double crochets; I love the way it turned out! What do you think? Let me know in the comments. 🙂

Have you heard about the Desert Blossom Stitch Along? I am running a series all throughout 2019 where I publish four stitch patterns per month—one per week. If you haven’t joined yet, it’s not too late! The great thing about this is that you can jump in at any time. Be sure to join the Stitch Along community in my Facebook group HERE.

Last thing before we get started on this stitch: If you want to get ahead on the stitches for April, I created a bundle of 4 Spring stitch patterns on Etsy which can be found here. Included is the Interlocking Fan Stitch, plus 3 OTHER lace stitch patterns (all of the ones from April!) The stitches are written out for easy printing. Find this bundle HERE!
