Here is yet another great stitch – The Bean Stitch! If you have ever crocheted the Puff Stitch then you are probably thinking that this stitch looks very similar. They are both crocheted in a very similar manner, but still 2 total different stitches. The Bean stitch has a tighter and more interlocked design than the Puff Stitch (Find a tutorial for the puff stitch HERE)
The bean stitch has an amazing texture to it. It has a very squishy appearance and feel. Crocheting this stitch makes a very solid and thick piece. This is a wonderful stitch especially for crocheting blankets.
You also don’t want to confuse the regular bean stitch with the mini bean crochet stitch. The crochet mini bean stitch is a different stitch.
After the foundation row, it is made doing a 1 row repeat.
What Can You Make With the Bean Stitch?
There are so many fun things that you can make with the crochet bean stitch. Some of the things you can make include
- Wash Cloths
Is the Bean Stitch a Yarn Eater?
I will say that the bean stitch does seem to take a lot of yarn. So, I would definitely categorize it as a yarn eater stitch. But, the texture that it provides is worth it.
Just keep in mind that you may want to grab a bit of extra yarn when starting a project. It is always a good idea to have some extra yarn on hand then less yarn and risk running short on a crochet project.

Bean Stitch Tutorial Step-by-Step Written Instructions
I used a 5.50 mm crochet hook and #4 worsted weight yarn, but you can use any size yarn with the corresponding hook size.
Start by chaining an even number of stitches, for this test swatch I chained 20
starting in the 2nd ch st from hook, sc in each ch across
ch 2, t, hdc in 1st st
*sk next st, work a bean st in next st*
Bean Stitch –
To make a bean stitch, insert hook into the st, yo, pull up a loop (2 loops on hook) * yo, insert hook into same st, yo, pull up a loop (4 loops on hook) Repeat from * once more. You should have 6 loops on hook, yo and pull through all 6 loops, secure with a ch st
First bean stitch made
*sk next st, work a bean st in the next st* repeat * to * across piece until you reach the last 2 st, sk st, hdc in last stitch
To continue working additional rows of bean stitch
Additional repeat row: ch 2, t, hdc in 1st st, work a bean st in every triangle space of bean stitch from previous row, hdc in very last st
The triangle is formed from not yarning over when you first go into the stitch to make a bean stitch. They are pretty easy to see once you pull the stitches apart a little.
And that is all there is to crocheting the Bean Stitch! It makes for such a beautiful stitch for adding to different projects.
