The Triad Crochet Stitch

The Triad crochet stitch has an interesting look and is essentially a puff stitch spread over 3 stitches. In this guide I show you how to make this stitch and how to use it for any size project.

I’ve chosen to use 2 different colours for my triads row and the single crochet row in between, but there’s no reason you couldn’t make this stitch in a single colour.

This stitch was featured in week 25 of my 50 Stitches crochet along

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

Single crochet (sc) = double crochet

The Triad Stitch Pattern

For the Triad crochet stitch you need to make your foundation chain in multiples of 2 plus 3 (plus 2 for your turning chain)

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

Turn

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

chain 1 and in the next 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. This will give you 7 loops on your hook. 

For each triad stitch you will have 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.

Pull through the first 6 loops to leave 2 loops on your hook

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

Repeat rows 2 and 3 ending on a repeat of row 3 for as many rows as you need to reach the right size for your project
