Triad Crochet Stitch + Blanket Pattern
If you've never used the triad stitch before, you really need to try it! The texture of this stitch is incredible. It's a bit of a yarn eater, but it's worth it. The stitch is very similar to the triad stitch, but with a few key differences that give it a slightly different look. It is more of a puff stitch with a more defined, taller shape. This gorgeous stitch is perfect for a beautiful blanket! Learn how to crochet this beautiful crochet stitch with a sophisticated and elegant look.
There are 2 rows for this stitch, a foundation row of stitches and the Triad stitch row.
Starting with the foundation row, CH 1
1 SC in 1st ST
*1 SC in next space/stitch
1 SC in stitch/open space from previous Triad Stitch
Repeat from * until end of the row. So I made 1 SC in each ST/space for this row
Starting the Triad ST row, CH 3
Yarn over your hook 1 time
Skip 1st ST, insert hook into the 2nd ST and pull the yarn through the loop (You’ll have 3 loops on your hook)
*Yarn over 1 time
Insert your hook into the next ST and pull the yarn through the loop (You’ll have 5 loops on your hook)
Yarn over 1 time
Insert your hook into the next ST and pull the yarn through the loop (You’ll have 7 loops on your hook)
Yarn over 1 time
Take that yarn through 6 loops on your hook, leaving 2 loops left
Yarn over 1 time
Take that yarn through both loops on your hook
Make 1 CH
For the next Triad Stitch, Yarn over your hook 1 time
Insert your hook into the stitch we were just working into, the one connected with the last Triad Stitch made, pull the yarn through the loop
You would then repeat from * for your 2nd Triad Stitch
Then for any future rows you would alternate between the foundation row and Triad Stitch rows
This is what the Triad Stitch should look like when completed!
I hope you all enjoyed this tutorial! I'm hoping that no one is confused. But if you still have any questions about it, please don't hesitate to ask.
