Learn how to crochet the beautiful Jasmine stitch in this step by step tutorial with pictures and video.
The crochet jasmine stitch is made with clusters of puff stitches. Once you’ve worked a few rows they’re grouped to resemble the jasmine flower.
The beauty of this stitch is that it’s a reversible stitch. It looks the same on both the right side and wrong side of your work.

It’s a very thick stitch. For that reason I’ve chose to work a smaller puff stitch cluster. You can increase the number of loops for each puff stitch to make each one thicker. Be aware this stitch is a yarn eater.
You’ll need yarn and the corresponding hook size. I’m using a #4 medium worsted weight yarn with a 5 mm crochet hook.
We’ll start with a foundation row of puff stitches, and build out our Jasmine star stitches from there.
I use the same puff stitch as I use in the Piemonte Blanket which is a free crochet pattern here.
Intermediate to Advanced
This is one of those crochet stitches that becomes easy once you learn it. However, there is a bit of a learning curve the first time you make it.
