The Triad Crochet Stitch

The Triad Crochet Stitch

The Triad crochet stitch has an interesting look and is essentially a puff stitch spread over 3 stitches. In this guide I show you how to make this stitch and how to use it for any size project.

I’ve chosen to use 2 different colours for my triads row and the single crochet row in between, but there’s no reason you couldn’t make this stitch in a single colour.

This stitch was featured in week 25 of my 50 Stitches crochet along

Single crochet (sc) = double crochet

The Triad Stitch Pattern

For the Triad crochet stitch you need to make your foundation chain in multiples of 2 plus 3 (plus 2 for your turning chain)

Row 1. Sc in 3rd chain from your hook (turning chain counts as a stitch) sc in each stitch across

Turn

Row 2. Chain 1 (doesn’t count as a stitch) make the alternate turning chain in the first stitch.

chain 1 and in the next stitch yarn over and pull up a loop. In the next stitch yarn over and pull up a loop. In the next stitch yarn over and pull up a loop. This will give you 7 loops on your hook. 

For each triad stitch you will have 7 loops on your hook

Yarn over and pull through 6 loops. Yarn over and pull through the last 2 loops. This is your first triad stitch.

Pull through the first 6 loops to leave 2 loops on your hook
