The Floret stitch is an easy textured crochet stitch that works up super quickly. 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.

Floret Stitch Crochet Written Instructions
Grab your yarn and hook and let’s get started.
Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook and in each chain across, turn
Row 2: Ch 1 (counts as 1 sl st), *dc in next st, sl st in next. Repeat from * across. Your last sl st is worked in the top of turning ch 3. Turn
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 Crocheting 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 of 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.
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.
