The Floret Stitch is a quick and easy crochet stitch to do that creates a beautifully textured fabric. It’s a simple two row repeat so it’s great for crocheting while you watch TV. This stitch is accessible to all skill levels and creates an absolutely beautiful texture. Let’s grab our hooks and our yarn and let’s learn how to crochet the Floret Stitch!

You can use any hook and yarn combination with this beautiful stitch but today I’ll be using a Furls Odyssey 5.5mm crochet hook and a Brava Worsted Weight Yarn from We Crochet. You can mix up your hook and yarn weights to change up the look of this stitch.

I love how the Floret Stitch looks in a Super Bulky weight yarn. I used the Floret Stitch in my Heather Super Scarf Pattern using Lion Brand Thick and Quick yarn and my model loved the scarf so much, she took it home with her. Find the free pattern for the Heather Super Scarf and give it a try to practice this stitch.

Stitch Multiple:

  • Chain in multiples of 2 + 3

Notes:

  • CH 3s at the beginning of row count as a DC ST

  • CH 1s at the beginning of row count as a SL ST

  • Your stitch count will not change from one row to the next row but it’s easy to lose stitches because of that beginning SL ST. Placing a stitch marker in the first stitch of rows that start with slip stitches will help you from missing this ST in subsequent rounds.

How to Crochet the Floret Stitch

Row 1 (Right Side): CH your desired number of chains for your foundation chain. For my example here, I have created a chain of 23. DC in the fourth chain (4th CH) from the hook and in each CH across. Turn.

Row 2 (Wrong Side): CH 1 (counts as first SL ST here and throughout), *DC in the next ST, SL ST in the next*. Repeat instructions in the ** until the end of the row, working the last SL ST into the top of the CH 3. You may find it helpful to place a stitch marker in the slip stitch at the beginning of this row to help you find it when working your 3rd Row.
