Today’s new crochet stitch is the Trinity Stitch. I love how it looks like little stars! This crochet stitch is made up of clusters of single crochets that start in the same stitch the previous stitch ended. (much like the mixed cluster stitch I used on this ear warmer).
In this sample I used a worsted weight yarn (Bernat super value) and a 6mm hook. It created a fabric that was pretty dense. Which makes it a great option for homewares and bags! If you are working with worsted weight yarn and want a looser weave for a hat, scarf or blanket I would recommend using a 6.5 or even and 8mm hook.
Sc: single crochet
Sc3tog: single crochet 3 together (see explanation below)
How to make a Sc3tog Cluster: Begin cluster in same stitch as previous stitch worked. Insert hook back into previous stitch, yo, pull up loop. (insert hook in next st, yo (yarnover), pull up loop)x2. Yo, pull through all 4 loops on hook.
Trinity Crochet stitch Instructions
Row 1: Ch a multiple of 2 (I chained 28 in my sample). Sc in 2nd ch from hook. Sc3tog Cluster (see instructions above) starting in the same ch as the previous st. *Ch 1, sc3tog cluster starting in the same ch as last leg of previous cluster. Repeat from * across. Sc in same ch as last leg of the previous sc3tog. Turn.
Row 2: Ch 1, sc in same st as ch 1. Sc3tog Cluster starting in same st as previous sc and then continuing in the top of the next cluster and ch 1 space. *Ch 1, sc3tog cluster starting in the same st last leg of previous cluster. Repeat from * across. Sc in same st as last leg of previous cluster. Turn
Repeat row 2 until piece is desired size.

I just watched your Trinity stitch tutorial. It looks so good, and you are good on details describing it. Thank you. I am working on CAL 2022 now.

Would you recommend any changes in I’m using Bernat Blanket Yarn to do this stitch?
This stitch is eye-catching and beautiful. I am trying my best to perfect this stitch as I would love to use it sewing 5×5 patched together in a sweet color way, such as yellow, gray, yellow, gray… 7 patches down and 7 patches across, for a total of 49…right? Nevertheless, absolutely lovely!

I have been crocheting for many years BUT boy, the stitches you have to offer is mind blowing. At this time of my life (73) I’m really so sad that I only discovered you now. Nevertheless, I thank God that I can still crochet and that one is never too old to learn.

I have crocheted for years and your sight is a great refresher course. Some stitches slip your mind as you get older and this is a great place to refresh your memory. Thank you
I love the way you explain everything so clear. I will be using your stitches a lot. I keep my family and friends in dish cloths and pot holders.Thank you so much for sharing with everyone. At 73 Art has come to visit me and won’t go away so I use my crocheting to keep my hand going.
