Bear Claw Crochet Stitch – Free Crochet Pattern

 

A lady in my Facebook group shared a picture of an afghan she made a long time ago and has now lost the pattern. She thought it might have been called Bear Claw, but wasn’t sure.

 

So I did my best to recreate it by looking at the pictures she shared in the group and this is what I came up with!

It really is a simple stitch! Don’t let the Front post triple crochets scare you, it’s super easy to get down and there’s only 4 repeating rows that can be done in your sleep.

For this project you’ll need:

HOOK: If making an afghan I recommend 5mm \ H hook

YARN: 4 ply yarn US \ 10 ply AU

 

If you are looking to make an afghan I have estimated about how many chains you would need to get these following sizes:

 

I also recommend using a size 6 mm \ J hook to make the beginning chain, then switch to a size 5 mm \ H hook on row 1

 

For baby blanket 126 stitches + 5 = 131 total stitches

 

For twin size 154 Stitches + 5 = 159 total stitches

 

For Queen size 196 + 5 = 201

 

This is only an estimate. I recommend measuring your chain to get a better idea of size.

About the Author:

Hi I'm Candy from Meladora's Creations and I design crochet patterns and film them on YouTube. I want to start by saying, I am by no means a professional teacher. I figure things out as I go along and I love playing with yarn! This is how I have discovered new crochet stitches. I am a mother of two and I live in Israel presently, but I was born and raised in Oklahoma. I met a man on an online game and became friends and through time we fell in love and I came out here to Israel to be together. From lack of knowing how to speak Hebrew, I had to find a way to help take care of our two kids, so after sharing my crochet projects online and being asked to do a tutorial on one of them, I finally broke down and tried it.
