Learn new stitches all year in our 2022 Stash Busting Mystery Row-by-Row Crochet Along

It’s time to start part 3 of our 2022 Stash Busting Sampler Crochet Along!

All this year we are working on a row by row crochet stitch sampler throw. We will learn approximately 30 new stitches to use on future projects and end up with a beautiful keepsake too. You can find out all about this crochet along here. It’s not too late to join!

The Stitches

This month’s stitches include the wave and chevron Stitch, the trinity stitch and the iris stitch.

The Wave and Chevron Stitch is a really fun variation of a classic ripple or chevron stitch. Each repeat startes with a flat edge! This stitch needs to be worked in at least 2 yarn colors to get the full effect. For the sample in our blanket, I changed from the main color to the coordinating color after 2 rows. Work 2 rows in the coordinating color and then either change to a new color or back to the main color.

I do not have a video tutorial for this stitch yet. I did not have time to film one and I figured I could link to some one else’s video but I can’t find one! I am working on filming a tutorial now. That will be out later this week.

The Trinity Stitch features clusters of single crochet stitches. This stitch is unique because the next stitch starts in the same stitch as the last one ended. I love how it looks like little stars.

We are ending this section with the Iris stitch. This is one of the most popular stitches on my entire website! Double crochet shell groups are built on each other by working into the chain spaces from the previous rows.

Materials and Information

  • Your chosen worsted weight yarn
  • 5.5mm crochet hook
  • Scissors and yarn needle

Gauge: 6 dc x 4 rows = 2 inches

This is a little tricky, given it is such a mix of stitches. I would say the stitch part of the gauge is easier to get correct for this particular project. As long as your first 2 rows are measuring approximately 42 inches across you should be good.

Measurements: 42 in across x 15.5 in tall

    1. Marion. Your 3 sc should all be in the same stitch. Those 3 sc should go into the top of your middle treble. Then one sc in the next two stitches going down to the “valley”. The 3 sctog will go in the next three stitches, then sc in each of the next two to bring you back up to the middle treble. Took me a few minutes to figure out myself . Mine is coming out fine.

      1. Thank you for your explanation. You made it perfectly clear and easy to understand.

    2. I am having trouble with this as well. Where it says “3 sc, sc 2, sc3tog, sc 2” What is the 3 sc??? It is not in the same form as others, the stitch and the #of stitches. I have done 3sc tog; I have done 3 sc . Please help!

      1. The ‘3 sc’ means make 3 sc in the same stitch. When you see a number before the stitch that means they are all worked in the same stitch, a number after means they are worked consecutively (ex: sc 2, means single crochet in the next 2 stitches). I’ve updated the wording to hopefully make it a little more clear.
