Loop Stitch Tutorial

The loop stitch is an easy one, but on first glance appears quite fiddly.  I thought it might be useful to make a tutorial to help you work through the stitch, so that you can go ahead and make your very own Sheldon the Sheep!



I have made both a video and photo tutorial, as I know I usually have to see both to really understand what goes where!

Photo Tutorial

The first thing to note in the Sheldon pattern is that when working the head and body, I suggest to work in the back loop only.   Why?  I'm not sure really, it's just the way I've always done it!


Step 1: Put your crochet hook through the back loop of the next stitch, and then yarn over.


Step 2: Next, stick out your index finger that is feeding the yarn.  This makes the 'loop' of the loop stitch.


 Step 3: Can you see the yarn hanging between my index and middle finger?  Catch it with your crochet hook.

Step 4: Pull it through the first loop on the hook.  You should then have 3 loop on your hook.  

Step 5: Yarn over again.


Step 6: Pull the yarn through all three stitches.  And your done!  The loop will show on the back of the piece you are working on.

  4. Hi Leah, I too am having trouble with row 4 and 5 in crocheting the Face. Is
    the 2dc,dc,2dc,dc,2dc,dc crocheted all in one stitch, or over the next 4 stitches, or is it 2dc,dc, in the first of 4 stitches? I just can not figure out how to work the pattern stitches over the "next 4 stitches". I hope you can figure out what I'm trying to say. Thank You, Joan

  6. I'm excitedly making my second colourful Sheldon and I can't find the loop stitch video. It seems to be invalid now. Is there any chance you have the video stored somewhere because I'm a little bit confused and can't remember how I did it last time.

  8. Somehow, understanding what happens in that magic loop evades me. Are there single crochet stitches? If so, how many. It is hard for a new crocheter to understand. It is well explained how to make the magic ring, but the next step must be adifference in the UK and US versions.
