I am so excited about Block #4 of the 2019 Stash Busting Crochet Along! The stitch featured in today’s crochet square pattern is the sedge stitch. It has TONS of texture and only has a one row repeat.

I love seeing all your creative blocks in the crochet group on Facebook. Seriously the colors and modifications you all are making to suit your individual crochet styles are so awesome. If you aren’t a part of the club, you should join us, show off your squares and ask your questions, either me or one of the other talented crocheters in there are ready and willing to help.
You can now pre-order the entire printable crochet along on Ravelry! You will automatically get the new ad-free pdf of each square pattern as it is released. Get it here!
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!
