How To Crochet The Wattle Stitch

Lately I have been interested in trying out some new crochet and knitting stitches. When I was looking some new ones up, I was immediately drawn to the Wattle Stitch. Continue reading if you want to learn how to crochet the Wattle Stitch and a bonus pattern for a wattle stitch washcloth!

Terms:

  • SC = Single Crochet
  • CH = Chain
  • DC = Double Crochet

 


  1. Chain a multiple of 3.
  2. In the 3rd chain from the hook, SC, CH, and DC
  3. Skip 2 chains, SC, CH, and DC in the 3rd chain from the hook
  4. repeat step 3 across
  5. single crochet in the very last chain
  6. turn, chain 1, skip the first 2 stitch, SC CH, and DC in the 3rd stitch (this will be into the chain in the previous row as shown in photo below) continue across. SC one in the last stitch.
  7. repeat row 6

Washcloth Pattern:

  • Yarn: Loops & Threads Crème Cotton in Cream (I just saw that they brought this back at Michaels!). I also used Navy and Mustard.
  • 6.5 mm (K) Crochet hook
  1. Cast on 30
  2. Wattle stitch x11 rows. On last row, cut yarn, leaving a good size strand
  3. Switch to your second color. Single crochet across, 3 DC in the last stitch. Then, continue single crochet around, 3 DC in the last stitch. Slip stitch very first stitch and last stitch. Weave in ends.
