Week 25 of The 50 Stitches Crochet Along

Week 25 of The 50 Stitches crochet along features the Triads stitch. This stitch has an interesting look and is essentially a puff stitch spread over 3 stitches.

If you would like to use the Triad stitch for your own project, you can find the guide on how to use it for any length of foundation chain here

You can find the links for all the squares in the crochet along here. The free pattern is below, but if you’d like the ad free printable version, it is available either as part of my Lifetime Pattern Pass, or you can purchase it on its own for £5 from Ravelry

This pattern is written in US terms, but the UK translation is below.

Single crochet (sc) = double crochet

The Pattern

For this square you will need a 3.5 mm hook

Start by making a foundation chain of 31

Row 1. Sc in 3rd chain from your hook (turning chain counts as a stitch) sc in each stitch across – 30 stitches

Turn

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

In the same stitch as the turning chain, 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. 

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

Chain 1

*In the same stitch that you finished the last triad 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. Yarn over and pull through 6 of the loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through the last 2 loops. Chain 1*

Repeat between *and* dc in the last stitch.

Turn

Row 3. Chain 1 (doesn’t count as a stitch) sc in the first stitch and every stitch across – 30 stitches

Rows 4 – 15.  Repeat rows 2 and 3 ending on a repeat of row 3

The Border

On the top and bottom edges, make a sc in each stitch.

On the sides make 2sc in the side of row 1, then 1 sc in the side of every sc row, and 3 sc in the side of every triad row.

You should have 30 sc down each side, plus an extra stitch in each corner for the turn. This will make your stitch count as 32 stitches across each side and 124 stitches total (remember the extra stitch corner stitch is counted in the stitch count for both sides)

You have now finished your square and join and you can tie off and weave in the ends

You can now add the interlocking border, joining this weeks square to last weeks as you join. You can see how to do this here
