The "loop stitch", thus named because of the long loops that it creates, is a fun way to add texture and visual interest to your crochet project.
To crochet the loop stitch, insert the hook in next st as shown below.
Wrap the yarn, front to back, over first and second finger as shown below. The yarn on your fingers become the loop. Yarn over and draw though a loop.
Carefully remove fingers from the loop. Yarn over and draw through both loops on the hook.
Check out how we incorporated the loop stitch in one of our amigurumi crochet designs...
