Elegant and feminine, like a meadow of flowers! Yes, I’m talking about Jasmine Stitch, the hero of today’s article. It looks divine, especially when made with soft and fluffy yarn. And guess what… it’s actually easier to make than you think! If you haven’t tried it already, today’s the best day for new adventures 😉
Take a look at today’s recommendations. Get inspired and try it for yourself!
Double-sided squishy texture is perfect for winter accessories or comfy blankets, but it all depends on the type yarn you use. When worked with thick cotton yarn or rope, it becomes dense and sturdy, which makes it perfect for bags, purses and other accessories.
Bella Coco used Paintbox Yarns Simply Aran in Washed Teal colorway and a 5.00 mm hook.
This stitch is made almost entirely with puff stitches, so if you have the skills, it will be much easier for you to grasp this technique. Work on the tension and fluency of your moves to make the work nice and even.
Chain stitch is obvious, but Foundation Puff Stitches, Turning Puff Stitches and Puff Stitch Clusters can be confusing at first, but I assure you, that once you practice with video tutorial, everything will become clear and simple.

The Jasmine Stitch by yarnTh3ory
There’s something about this yarn that makes me want to try it as well! Krysten’s jasmine stitch is a great example of how delicate speckles enhance the natural floral look of this technique. Take a look and notice the rustic vibe it gives off, or go straight to the video tutorial to learn it – it’s linked below the picture.

Mohair Jasmine Stitch by Crochet Rainbow
There are two groups of people – those who love and those who hate mohair, but I think it’s all about the context! I was amazed to see jasmine stitch worked in this delicate kind of yarn, but somehow it just works. This technique is most often combined with dense and squishy yarns, but, as you can see, it looks lovely in mohair, too!
Jasmine Stitch by nadhezdha_lab
As you may already know, stitches can look very different when made with different materials. That’s exactly why I want you to peek at the two photos below! Behind both of them is Nadhezdha, whose crochet creations are very much worth checking out. In the top photo you can see jasmine stitch made with a cord, and in the bottom one – with soft and fluffy yarn. Isn’t the difference intriguing?
Jasmine Stitch by amicoro_journal
Oh yes, artisan yarn is perfect for jasmine stitch projects, and that’s because it’s decorative enough on its own, and it can showcase the coloring beautifully. Crocheter behind amicoro_journal decided to use lovely yarn dyed with greens, cream and violet, so the final effect reminds me of a crocus flower! Take a look at the photos below and see for yourself.

If you look closely, you’ll see that one of the colors is delicately speckled with pastels!
Jasmine Stitch Baby Blanket by The Pretty Knot
Squishy blankets are perfect for babies, because they keep them warm and cozy. Use the softest yarn you can find, combine it with simple stitches… and voila! Crocheter behind The Pretty Knot knows it well, and you can see the effect in the pictures below. How cute is this peachy pink with white?
