How to: Crochet in the Third Loop [Video]

by - May 02, 2019

My newest free pattern, the Gold Luxe Cowl, involves crocheting in the third loop.  This method creates a beautiful, knit-like look using crochet methods!  Working half double crochets also allows a good amount of stretch in the fabric, giving this cowl its lovely drape without looking or feeling too dense and rigid.

You can wear the Gold Luxe Cowl different ways, too!

Check out my video tutorial below to learn how to crochet in the third loop.

If you're more of a picture and written instruction learner, take a look at my photo references below.

Remember, grab the free pattern for the Gold Luxe Cowl to practice this easy crochet method with stunning results!

Happy crocheting~

  1. thanks for sharing this versatile pattern! I have some lion suede by lion brand that I will use to make this cowl for myself for fall. I believe the lion suede is a discontinued yarn (#5 bulky) but is swishy and I have about 8.5 ounces to use. You could try to substitute another #5 bulky as an idea. Thanks again for sharing!
