How to Crochet the Wattle Stitch

The wattle stitch is another beautiful stitch texture, fine and solid. Ideal for baby blanket, shawls and scarves, beanies, as well as huggable cardigans. You could do with a dishcloth using your favourite cotton yarn.

Stitch Standards

I am using the US/International Standard Crochet Terms

Foundation Chains

This stitch requires multiple of 3 stitches + 2 + additional 1 for the base chain.
Tensions: If you are to make 21 stitches, add an extra 2 chains, and another 1 chain for the base, giving you a total of 24 chains.

Row 1 (Right Side)

Skip the first 2 ch from the hook (count as 1 sc), * work [1 sc, 1 ch, 1 dc] into the next chain, skip the next 2 ch, repeat from * ending at 1 sc into the last ch. turn

Row 2 (Wrong Side)

1 ch ( count as 1 sc), skip the first sc and next dc, * work [1 sc, 1 ch, 1 dc] into the next chain space, skip the next sc and dc, repeat from * ending with [1 sc, 1 ch, 1 dc] into last chain space, skip next sc, 1 sc on top of the turning chain, turn.

Repeat Row 2 to continue.
