How to Crochet the Sedge Stitch

*scroll down for the square pattern

This stitch is made by crocheting a single crochet and 2 double crochets into the same stitch, skipping 2 stitches and then repeating that pattern across your piece. You’ll repeat this pattern for each row. After row 1, all your single/2 double crochet groups will be worked into the single crochet of the previous row. You’ll skip the 2 double crochets every time.

If you want to use this stitch pattern on another project or want to modify the size of this one, you’ll need to start with a multiple of 3 chains plus 2 more.

I did my square in a solid color, but as with every other square, you do you! Stripes, solid, color blocked, whatever you want! I can’t wait to see them. You can share a picture with me on Ravelry or Facebook. You can also use #2019StashBustingCAL on Instagram!

Sharing is caring!


  1. Thank you for this pattern and the clear instructions. I have seen this pattern before on a different website, but didn’t try to crochet it because it seemed complicated and I just wanted an easy-to-follow pattern. Now that you have solved that problem I’m going to try this. While I was reading the pattern and admiring the texture shown in the photographs I thought about an afghan made in this stitch, with the 12 inch squares, however done in a 2 colour block checkerboard pattern. I’m not sure if I’ve gone off the rails on this but I’ll try it as a baby blanket first. At least then I won’t have too many squares to sew together when I’m done crocheting!

  2. Where is the chain 1 stitch? I am confused. The only mention of a chain 1 is in second row, so please help. thank you.
    by the way I love all these sampler blocks

  3. I got this stitch in my email last night from another crocheter I follow and wanted to try it and today that is your stitch for my next square. The only difference is she does sc, hdc, dc in each stitch…either way I can’t wait to try this out! I am enjoying this, 2 squares a month even I can’t get bored mored making an afghan…just get anxious waiting for each one to get in my email LOL

  4. I am loving this CAL and introduced it to my crochet group. Just wondering what the plan might be for joining as each block has a different count of single crochets on the border edges.

  5. It’s truly a testament to the fun of this CAL, I promised myself no BOM’s or swaps this year. I am a quilter with a ton of swap blocks that need to be made into quilts, but I can’t stop joining the next fun BOM or swap!

    So faithful to that promised, here this CAL appears and I thought okay in the evenings! Lol I am sworn to secrecy as I have a friend that helps keep me in Line! I don’t t dare tell her about this CAL! Lol

  6. I love your blog. Thank you for this pattern. I love making the 12” squares, especially an Afghan where all the squares are different, and I learn new stitches. I have crocheted for over 50 years and still learning new things. Thank you so much!
