The floret stitch is one of my absolute favorite stitches to crochet and share!
It combines two stitches of different heights and gives this great texture to your project, while still being super simple to crochet!
To work this repeating two row pattern, we are just working a combination of double crochet and slip stitches and then a row of just doubles.
It is a simple technique, but gives us lots of style! It looks great in all kinds of yarns too.
Lets get started learning the floret stitch.
Techniques and Abbreviations Used:
- ch – chain

Floret Stitch Written Instructions:
Work in multiples of 2 stitches + 1 stitch and add 2 if starting with a foundation chain.
Floret Stitch: Work a row of dc, then in next row, alternate 1 dc and 1 sl st, repeat these rows to achieve the floret look.
Row 1: Work 1 dc in 4th ch from hook and each ch across to end, turn.
Row 2: Ch 1, *1 dc in next st, 1 sl st in next st; repeat from * to end of row, work last sl st into turning chain, turn.
Row 3: Ch 3 (this counts as a dc), skip sl st, *1 dc in next dc, 1 dc in next sl st; repeat from * to end of row so that you are working the last dc into the turning ch, turn.
Row 4+: Repeat Row 2 and 3.
- Make sure you are ending Row 2 with a sl st in the turning chain and Row 3 with a dc into the turning chain.
- Make sure your sl st are lining up with two rows below so you benefit from the repeating columns.
