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.

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.

Practice this stitch on this easy infinity scarf pattern!

    1. I was confused on the end of row two where it says to work last sl st into turning chain but there was none at the end of row one – just a chain 1 at the beginning of row two? I’m new so can someone advise me on this

  1. Thank you Heather for this beautiful, but simple, stitch. My mind’s eye sees this as a scarf first and then move up to a baby blanket. I too appreciate patterns that are simple repeats so that I can crochet without constant reference to the pattern. Most of my yarn time is during the evening, after work so that I can relax before bedtime. This fits nicely into that category of patterns.

    I’m so glad I found your website!

  2. I’ve been making hats for people going through cancer treatment and I just loved this stitch and had to use it for a hat. I simply started a basic top down beanie and when finished the rows of increasing I began the stitch. I worked in the round, slip stitching at the end of each row and it worked!! The only think is, the pattern works to the inside so when finished simply turn the hat inside out. I love the way it came out!

  3. I love this stitch! I am working on a sampler afghan & this will be the perfect new stitch for one of my squares!
