How do you do the crochet mile-a-minute stitch?

I need help with crochet.

First you need a pattern. There is a wide variety of mile-a-minute patterns. There is not a mile-a-minute stitch. Depending on the pattern the stitches can be single, double, triple etc. They are done in several strips and then they are either crocheted or sewed together. The Leisure Arts Company has a book of mile-a-minute patterns that is great.

Mile-A-Minute is not a stitch, but a crochet pattern that allows a project to be completed much faster than normal because of the quick stitches involved in the pattern. For example, an afghan can be made out of individual strips you crochet in single and double crochet then join together to make your afghan.

A mile a minute stitch is really just a chain of stitches like a double or triple (treble) crochet stitch or a variation thereof. Check out for a guide.

Mile-a-minute isn't a type of crochet stitch but a pattern or design. It's called mile-a-minute because it's a repetitive design that you can make quickly. For example, a bunch of double crochets or triple crochet rows. Something one can do without much thought or looking at a pattern continuously.
