Crochet has seen a huge rise in popularity over the last few years, along with many other yarn crafts like knitting.

There are so many different crochet projects and stitches to master – from the humble granny square to creating beautiful home accessories like crochet flowers.

And now there's a new stitch to add to your repertoire: the tulip stitch. This pretty stitch is made using pink and green yarn, with the stitches built up to look like crochet flowers.

Crafters all over the world have been taking to social media to share their tulip stitches and the projects they create with them. There's so much crochet inspiration!

Creating a pretty tulip stitch

The TikTok account Yana's Crochet shared their simple technique to create a tulip in crochet. She worked a series of stripes in white and green yarn and used a pastel pink yarn to create popcorn stitch (5 trebles into one stitch, then slip the trebles together) to act as a tulip.

It's such a simple stitch, but the tulip looks so effective!

There are so many pretty projects you can make with your tulip stitches. Once you've mastered the basic stitch, why not keep working the rows to create a pretty tulip blanket?

That's what the TikTok account aesthetic.stitch did, and shared the results in a video on the social media platform. They worked the tulip rows in a series of pastel pink colours for added elegance.
