The Wattle Stitch is another paired stitch. It combines the Single Crochet and Double Crochet, which are linked together with a Chain. For this stitch you will be working into the turning Chain at the end of each row.
This stitch is worked in multiples of 3 + 2, plus 1 for the foundation chain.
Okay, let’s begin!
Begin with your choice of yarn and size crochet hook. I personally LOVE Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton yarn. It’s super soft!
Step 1: Create your Foundation Chain. For this tutorial I crocheted 18 + 2 + 1 = 21 Chains.
Step 2: *1 SC, CH1, 1DC, in the next CH. Skip the next 2 CH. Repeat this from * until you reach the last CH.
Work 1 SC in the last CH, turn your work.
Step 3: CH 1 (counts as 1 SC), skip the 1st SC and next DC, *1 SC, CH 1, 1 DC, into the next CH space. Repeat from * to the last CH space.
Work 1 SC, CH 1, 1 DC into the last CH space. Skip the last SC. Work 1 SC into the turning CH.
Your work will begin looking like this!
Now turn your work.
Repeat Step 3 until you have reached your desired length!
Look how pretty this stitch begins to look! And what’s even better is it’s reversible, making it lovely for beginners and gives you a great stitch all around
