You can use any hook and yarn combination with this 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 crochet scarf pattern for the Heather Super Scarf HERE give it a try to practice this stitch.
Check out my How to Crochet the Floret Stitch video tutorial here:
- CH = Chain
- DC = Double Crochet
- SL ST = Slip Stitch
- ST(s) = Stitch(es)
- Chain in multiples of 2 + 3
- CH 3s at the beginning of row count as a DC ST
- CH 1s at the beginning of row count as a SL ST
- Placing a stitch marker in the first SL ST of your row will help you from missing this ST in subsequent rounds.
How to Crochet the Floret Stitch
Row 1: CH your desired number of chains. For my example here, I have created a chain of 23. DC in the 4th CH from the hook and in each CH across. Turn.
Row 2: 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 Row 3.
Row 3: CH 3 (counts as first DC here and throughout), DC in the 2nd ST and each ST across.
Repeat Rows 2 and 3 until your project is your desired size!
That’s it! Isn’t that’s so simple? What kind of project would you use the Floret Stitch for?
