How to crochet the Spike Stitch – long double crochet

In this DROPS video we show how to crochet the Spike Stitch, also called the long single crochet. Work chain stitches with a number multiplied with 6+1. In this video we have 24+1 chain stitches.

Work like this:
Row 1: Turn, 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet in the 2nd stitch from hook, then work 1 double crochet in each stitches the entire row, turn.
Row 2: 1 Chain stitch, 1 double crochet in each stitches the entire row, turn.
Row 3-6: Repeat row 2, but in the last pull through on row 6, change color, turn.
Now we work the “Spike Stitch” / double crochet with different length.
Row 7: Work 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet in the 1st stitch, 1 double crochet in the next stitch, but in the row under, 1 double crochet in the next stitch, but in the stitch 2 rows under, 1 double crochet in the next stitch, but in the stitch 3 rows under, 1 double crochet in the next stitch, but in the stitch 4 rows under, 1 double crochet in the next stitch, but in the stitch 5 rows under. One rapport with “Spike Stitch” is finish, remember too pull out the double crochets too avoid to be to tight. Repeat the “Spike Stitch” the whole row and work 1 double crochet in the last stitch, turn.
Repeat row 2-6, change color and work 1 row with “Spike Stitch”. Work like this to you have your desired length.

The small piece in the video is crochet in DROPS Cotton Merino, but we use a thicker yarn when we crochet; DROPS Eskimo.
