In celebration of March being National Crochet Month, I have been running a series of stitch tutorials every Friday. Today’s stitch is called the Floret Stitch. This is an easy textured stitch that works up super quick. You will make a row of double crochets and then a row of alternating slip stitches and double crochets. It is this second row that gives this stitch its lovely texture.

Row 3: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), dc in each dc and sl st across, working your last dc in turning ch 1.

And that’s it! Just repeat rows 2 and 3 until your piece is the desired size. Finish off and weave in ends

Tips For Working the Floret Stitch

Make sure you are working the last stitches in the turning chains. They are easy to miss, especially that little ch 1 from row 2. I did it a couple times while I was crocheting this swatch.

I haven’t swatched this yet but I think this stitch would look nice in multiple colors. Don’t let my single colored swatch hold you back LOL.

What are you going to make with this? A scarf, a baby blanket, an afghan made with cozy bulky yarn that you can snuggle under and drink a nice cup of steaming coffee… oh sorry I went off to dreamland there for a minute.

      Hola Maria! I am sorry your having trouble. You will alternate double crochets and slip stitches. After each double crochet, you will slip stitch into the next stitch. That very last slip stitch is placed in the top of the turning chain from the previous row.

        Hi Heather, I think there is an error towards the end of the pattern. You repeat rows 1 and 2 not rows 2 and 3. I hope this helps you. This is a wonderful pattern and works up beautifully. Try it again!

          Hi Rhonda! I’m glad you like this stitch. Repeating rows 2 & 3 is correct. Although rows 1 and 3 are both made up of double crochets, row 1 is the foundation row which males the instructions a little bit different.

    Looks like a great stitch to use. I’m going to have a go in a striped pattern. However…are you using US or UK stitching? I can’t see that the pattern states which one xx

    I look forward to trying this. I have been crocheting on and off since I am 8. It is so therapeutic for me. Thankfully not everyone thinks so which means there is always a gift to make an order to fill or someone who I can bless with a scarf or hat!

    I love to try a new stitch. I really do like it and it sounds easy enough. I am trying to decide what stitch/pattern to use for my grandson. I made two of them using ripples and one just straight rows. He wants red white and blue, so gonna give this a shot. Hope it won’t look girly! ?
