Crochet Basics: Trinity Stitch
Hello, my dear crocheters! You know, one thing that I’ve always loved to do is to learn the new stitches! And believe it or not, there are lots of crochet stitches that I have never tried before. Sounds familiar? So, let’s start to explore some of them together! Today, I’d like to introduce you to the Trinity Stitch! The Trinity Crochet Stitch is a fun, easy-to-crochet stitch. It gets its name because there are three vertical bars per stitch, which gives an excellent texture that is fun and simple. Grab your hook and learn how to crochet this new stitch with this crochet tutorial!
Make the foundation row of the trinity stitch first.
1. Chain an even number of chains.
2. Single crochet in the second chain from the hook.
3. Sc3tog (Single Crochet Three Together) using the same st you just went into and the next two chains.
4. Chain one. Sc3tog using the same st you just went into and the next two chains.
5. Repeat steps 3 & 4 to the end of the row.
6. Place one more single crochet in the same as last stitch. First row complete!
To continue the trinity stitch repeat the following row. Chain one and turn.
7. Single Crochet in the first stitch of the row.
8. Sc3tog using the same stitch, top of next stitch, and the next chain.
9. Chain one. Sc3tog using the same stitch, top of next stitch, and the next chain – all the way to the end of the row. When you get to the end, place a single crochet in the same as the last stitch.
Note that the outside single crochet stitches should NOT have a chain next to either of them. Not after the first single crochet of the row and not before the last single chain of the row.
The trinity stitch makes a very thick fabric with no holes like a lacy pattern would have. This stitch would be perfect for handbags, blankets, warm clothing, baby items, scarves and hats and so much more! The beautiful little star-like detail of the stitch is sure to draw attention and compliments!
