The sprig stitch is one of my favorite fan stitches because it is so easy to crochet.
The fan in the sprig stitch is just a combination of single crochet and chain stitches and they work one fan on top of the other, so it is easy to make sure you are working in the right spot.
This is a great beginner fan stitch option and so easy to learn. It looks great in a variety of yarns and colors, so it is a really flexible stitch option.

Sprig Stitch Written Instructions:
Work this stitch in multiples of 4 +2, add 1 for your initial foundation chain.
Sprig Stitch: 2 sc, 2 ch, 2 sc – this fan is all worked into the ch 2 space from the row below.
Row 1: 2 sc in 4th ch from hook, ch 2, work 2 sc in next ch, *skip 2 ch, 2 sc in next ch, ch 2, 2 sc in next ch; repeat across to last two chains, skip 1 ch, 1 sc in last ch, turn.
Row 2: Ch 3, work 1 sprig st into each of the ch 2 spaces across, work 1 sc in turning ch at end of row, turn.
Row 3+: Repeat Row 2.
- Make sure you are always working into the ch 2 space from the row below to keep your sprig fans aligned.
- Be sure to work a sc into the turning ch at the end of each row. This will help keep your edges neat.
- Since this is a tigher fan using sc, this fabric is a little denser and less lacy than some of the other fan stitches.
