Free Spiral Crochet Pattern and a fun Giveaway!


I love fun new crochet patterns and just happened upon a vintage pattern for a spiral crochet using three colors.  Which of course filled my head with colorful ideas.  So I sat down this past weekend with some brightly colored yarn a plan, and a few yummy Jif® Bars (because sometimes a little peanut butter helps the creative process) and created my own spiral crochet pattern.

Yes, Jif® Bars are involved!  And if you love a quick and easy snack, be sure to check the bottom of this post for a fun giveaway!

These pretty spirals are going to be used in a future project, which I will feature later here on the Sitcom.  In the meantime, let me show you how to make them!

Begin by choosing three colors of yarn that you love.  Half the fun of this project is enjoying the colors! Any size crochet hook will do.  I used a G sized hook for the spirals in this tutorial.

Create a “Magic Ring” using color “A”. Click here for a simple video on the “Magic Ring“.

With color A, sc, 2 hdc, and 1 dc into the loop.

Add on color B.  1 sc, 2 hdc, and 1 dc into the loop.

Add on color C.  1 sc, 2 hdc, and 1 dc into the loop.

Pull the magic circle closed.  You now have the beginning of your spiral!

Choose a section to start with.  (From this point on, all stitches are done in the back loop of each stitch).  Do 2 dc in each of the 4 stitches on the next section.

You will end up with the beginning of a spiral.  Drop the color you are working on and pick up the color in the next section. (In the photo above, I moved from blue to pink).

End each color with 1 hdc in next two stitches, 1 sc in next stitch and 1 sl in next stitch. Cut and tie off loose ends.

I love the look of these pretty spirals!  They would make great coasters or pot holders or even can be used for other pretty projects!  See, those peanut butter bars definitely inspire!

Be sure to stay tuned for a future post on what I end up doing with these pretty spirals!

    Hi Suzy, love this, thanks for sharing! I thought I’d ask before I start, I want to make a circular cushion, can I just keep going with the spiral? Many thanks from New Zealand.

    • Susan Myers November 30, 2016, 12:11 am

      Hi Colleen!

      Yes, you just have to keep on going with the spiral. Would love to see what you come up with!

    Sorry I have just found this page, and love it. Have you completed the pattern to turn this spiral into a square ? I am keen to do a blanket with spirals but need to make them into squares. Thank you.

    • Susan Myers September 7, 2016, 3:28 pm

      Hi Noel!
      I have the pattern just about completed. I tend to be all over the place, so this one fell to the wayside while I was completing some summer projects. I plan to have it listed sometime this month. Thank so much for following along!

    I love this spiral crochet! I can’t eat peanut butter but it’s my husband’s addiction next to chocolate! Humm, what do I want to see? Actually, I enjoy just about anything you create. I think I’d like to see some Christmas crafts I can do with my grandchildren.

  • Anonymous September 28, 2015, 1:46 pm

    With the winter season fast approaching, scarves, mittens, booties, etc, would be a great pattern to have.

  • Heather G September 25, 2015, 9:04 pm

    I’ve never seen spiral crochet! Very pretty!

  • VickiT September 25, 2015, 5:29 pm

    Thank you for the tutorial. I keep trying to teach myself to crochet and at some point I know I’ll want to try this too.

    Wow. In my home we only buy Jif and these I must try. Go ahead and laugh because I’ve never seen these before, but am sure they must be super tasty. I’d love to try them.

    The one thing I am trying to learn to crochet again to make IF I ever locate instructions is for a scrubby pad. My husband’s grandmother made them to give to all the women each year at Thanksgiving but I never thought to ask if she would write down how she made them exactly and now she’s gone sadly. I did talk to her one time about them and told her how much I loved them but couldn’t figure out what they were made from. They were only small-ish squares or probably rectangular in shape and worked SO well. She told me they were made from a plastic type tulle or something similar that she had to cut in order to use to make them. I just don’t remember now what she said it was. And I don’t know how she made them either so that’s what my request would be if you know what I’m speaking of and how to make them.

    Thank you.

  • Anonymous September 25, 2015, 4:09 pm

    These great waves of color just want me to make them into X-mas candys to use on the tree.

  • Pamela September 25, 2015, 3:49 pm

    I would love to see some slippers/booties for toddlers to adults. So hard to find for children ages 1 – 10.

  • NancyGrace Sims September 25, 2015, 3:34 pm

    I would LOVE for you to do the next in your series of The Twelve Days of Christmas painting patterns/designs. Let’s see: You have your wonderful PARTIDGE, two TURTLE DOVES, and I seem to recall three FAT HENS somewhere.
    So what is next? Inquiring minds want to know.

  • Sue September 25, 2015, 3:22 pm

    you are so talented in coming up with unique ideas I would like some new ideas for mug rugs or cup cozies for gift giving.

  • cyndi br September 25, 2015, 2:47 pm

  • DiEtta September 25, 2015, 1:12 pm

    Suzy….love the crochet pattern. Can’t wait to see what these are going to be made into. I lost my mom last year. When I saw this weeks crochet pattern I thought of my mom and how much fun her and I would have had working this pattern together. Missing her so much. As far as crafts…..I would love to see a cute Advent Calendar for the Christmas holiday. Thanks for sharing…….😍

  • Pat September 25, 2015, 11:23 am

    Christmas ornaments! Christmas wreathes!! Peanut butter!!! Well, I’d keep the peanut butter separate…

  • Sara September 25, 2015, 11:17 am

    I love just about all the projects you do. But i would love ideas with crocheting or sewing gifts for christmas.

  • Dawn A. September 25, 2015, 11:11 am

    I LOVE these crocheted patterns! My daughter makes coasters to give as gifts and also sell at fundraising events (Breast Cancer Walk, Girl Scout Fundraising, Autism Speaks Fundraiser). She hasn’t learned to crochet quite yet, but I would love to sit down with her and do it together (while trying these JIF bars out).
    Holiday idea: hmm I’m 40 and not sure how old you are, but I remember making hanging ornaments for our tree when I was younger using our pictures and pieces of fabric. We made mini picture frames covered in fabric with some cotton stuffing inside, and a few other fabric made ornaments gluing our pictures on them in different fashions. Those might be a fun project to post for the nostalgic ones like me. 🙂
    Thank you!!!

  • Jaan September 25, 2015, 11:06 am

    Well finally a simple tutorial of the spiral stitch. Think I can actually do it. So new jif bars…sound to good to be true.
