Crochet Pattern: Peace Sign (detailed)

By Rachel Choi – 31 Comments

For those who have asked so kindly for detailed step by step photos of the Peace Sign Crochet Pattern, here it is! To see all the pattern specifications see the original pattern. This tutorial still requires you to know how to crochet the stitches and will not go into detail about every single stitch. If you need need help with the stitches or crochet language, check out the crochet abbreviations chart, since it has links to the stitch tutorials.

This tutorial is for both right and left handed people. For left handed pictures, roll your mouse over the image and it will change for you.

Round 1: ch 13

tr in first ch made

ch 3

tr in first ch made

ch 3 (this is the second time in pattern)

tr in first ch made (this is the second time in pattern)

ch 7

sl st in sixth ch made at beginning of round

Round 2: 14 sc in ch-7 space

6 sc in next ch-3 spaces

6 sc in next ch-3 spaces (this is the second ch-3 space)

14 sc in next ch-7 space

sl st in first sc made

Here it is! Finish off by cutting your yarn and weaving in your ends nice and neat. Make sure your single crochets in the chain spaces are spread out evenly. If they’re bunched together, it’ll make the peace sign lopsided.

  5. Hey, it could be modified to make something else as well….Sure does look similar to a pretzel in step six! I LOVE pretzels!

    This is awesome. You rock.

  7. Rana says:

    How long Aproxx do these take to make??

    • Rachel says:

      Hi Rana, it all depends on how fast you crochet. For me it takes about 5 minutes, since I’ve made tons of these. If it’s your first time, it’ll probably take longer.

  8. Suzanne says:

    I would like to make one of these into a pet tag for a special dachshund. I haven’t been able to figure out how to crochet the lines across the center of the middle of the ring. Would you have time to point me in the right direction? Thanks

  9. Rachel says:

    Hi Suzanne, try following this turorial step by step. It shows you how to make the lines in the middle.

  10. Aki says:

    Im a visual learner. This is an AWESOME pattern, just want to know how you got from step 1 to step 2 and so on. When I try to follow, my pattern looks totaly different from what you have. I’m still a noobie in making other patterns…so I’m lost! Is there a video of some kind???


    • Rachel says:

      Hi Aki, this isn’t really a beginner’s pattern, but if you carefully read the instructions between each of the photos it tells you what to do to get the result shown in the photos. For example, the first picture shows the ch 13. Then the second picture shows you what it looks like after make the treble in the first chain made.

  11. Aki says:

    bummer…not im heartbroken

  12. Aki says:

    now = now* x_x

  13. Jenny says:

    Just take your time and I’m sure you’ll get it Aki! If it’s too hard you can always come back when you’ve learned more of the stitches. It gives something to aim for 🙂
    This is actually a really detailed tutorial, so once you know the stitches and basics of crochet, you can easily follow the pics!

  14. Aki says:

    oh wait…got it!!! *heart healed* 😀 thanks!!!

  15. Grace12 says:

    This was the first pattern I followed after my mom taught me to crochet triangles and it was super easy.Thank you!

  16. Kathy says:

    Hi, Thank you so much for all the effort you took to make a step-by-step picture tutorial. I was trying to follow the written instructions but I just couldn’t seem to figure it out after numerous tries. I was able to follow the pictures on the first try. I am making a Grrlfriend Market Bag for my husband’s co-worker. She wanted it in “hippy” colors so I’m making it in hot pink, orange, yellow and green. But it still didn’t look enough like a “hippy” bag. So I found your peace signs and I’m so excited. I’m going to make some and put them on the bag for her. Thank you so, so, so much!!! I hope it turns out okay.

  17. Leigh Ann says:

    I tried making these a while back, before you had the step-by-step instructions, and I could NOT make them right.. They would always be “apple” shaped, but now I see that hook size does matter! Anyhow, many thanks for the killer and super easy pattern and most definitely for taking the time to break it down even simpler 🙂

  18. Katie says:

    Can you explain how to triple crochet in the second step I am lost!!

  19. Rachel says:

    Hi Rachel! I love this pattern thank you so much for it i get all of it until i sc in the holes it look perfect but after i finish its the shape of an apple if you know something i can do or if im missing something you could help me with possibly?

  20. Brogan says:

    Mine is still turning out apple shaped. Is there something else I might be doing wrong? Am I doing it too tight or too loose?

    • Rachel says:

      Brogan, if the part that’s dipping in is where the chains are, maybe those chains are too tight. It’s very common for folks to make the chains tighter than the other stitches.

  21. Laura says:

    I would like to make an afghan using the peace sign as the center. I have only been able to find little one that might be used for magnets or other items. Does anyone have any suggesstions?

  22. Brianne says:

    I was so sure that I would try this over & over again & still not be able to get it right! I tried this 1 time & it came out right! I was so surprised. Of course it didn’t come out as neatly as yours, but I’d say its good for a beginner!

  23. Jasmine says:

    I’m sort of a beginner but I’ve done other project before stumbling on this. reading the directions seems easy but I’m having troubles starting.. i did the 13 chains and i went to do the second step but the picture looks different than what i came out with.. Am i doing something wrong? is there a step in between that I’m missing?

    • Rachel Choi says:

      Hi Jasmine!
      There isn’t any steps in between. After you chain 13, you’ll make a tr into the first chain that you made. It will look like a circle or D shape after you make the tr.

  24. Kellie says:

    I wish all patterns were all step by step I’m a beginner again it helps if you know what it should look like.

  25. Naomi weddle says:

    I just made my first peace sign. YEAH!!! It took me a few minutes but I found enlarging your photos I could see the stitches better. I’m going to make some yellow and blue ones to give away in support of Ukrain.
