How to Do the Crochet Griddle Stitch

Crochet Griddle Stitch (cobble stitch) Directions | Sakeenah

The Griddle stitch, or Cobble stitch, looks like a complicated stitch, but it’s actually pretty simple. To crochet the griddle stitch, you just alternate between sc and dc, single crocheting into the double crochet stitch and double crocheting into the single crochet stitch of the previous rows. It creates a nice tight and textured look. In wearables that call for rows of all hdc, you can substitute the griddle stitch and avoid the looks of stripes in your work.

Calls for:

chain stitch – ch
single crochet – sc
double crochet – dc

Foundation chain – Chain an even number of chains plus 2 extra.

Row 1
sc into the 4th chain from the hook (counts as first dc) *1 sc into next ch, 1 dc into next chain, rep from * ending with a sc.

Row 2
ch 3 (counts as first dc), skip first stitch, *1 sc into next stitch, 1 dc into the next stitch, rep from* ending with a sc in the top of the turning chain.

Repeat row 2 until you reach the desired length.

Simple! Have any finished objects to show with the griddle stitch?

  1. Hi! Thought you might like to know that the Cobble stitch is different. It alternates a tr, instead of a dc. There is an Aligned Cobble Stitch ( and an Offset Cobble Stitch ( I designed a coaster an Aligned Griddle Stitch coaster-cozy and wash cloth. Haven’t found the Aligned Griddle Stitch pattern anywhere but I doubt if it’s original – it’s like the Aligned Cobble stitch but uses a dc instead of a tr. There’s also a Crumpled Griddle Stitch:
    Starting chain: multiple of 2 sts + 3
    Drape: good
    Skill: easy

    Row 1: Sc in 4th ch fr hook (counts as dc), *sc in next ch, dc in next; rep from * ending sc in last ch, turn.
    Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as dc), sk 1 st, *sc in next sc, dc into next dc; rep from * ending last rep in top of turning ch, turn.
    Rep 2nd row.

      Hi Tamara! Thank you for the info and the great links. I will update the post title. There are so many different stitches, I get a bit confused with the names sometimes 🙂
