Ava’s Wattle Stitch Crochet Blanket

Wattle Crochet Stitch WTL8921A-3

Hello and Welcome!

Ruby here and I’m featuring one of our favorite stitches! Or combination of stitches rather. The Wattle stitch. 

One of the reasons I’m so mad for granny’s is the repetition of the stitches. The Wattle stitch is very much like that. I could just spend hours working this stitch. 

Modern colors paired with an easy stitch that has a soft and squishy texture!

What is the Wattle Stitch?

A cousin to the Wattle stitch, the Sedge stitch on a cluster of stitches consisting of the single crochet, half double crochet and double crochet (sc,hdc,dc). Your chain is worked in Multiples of 3. This stitch works up surprisingly fast and creates fabulous texture!


YO – Yarn Over

REP – Repeat

CH – Chain

SC – Single Crocher

ST – Stitch

DC – Double Crochet

SK – Skip


*All stitches are in U.S. Terms.

Gauge: 18 sts and 12 row = 4” (10cm)

Crochet hook size I (5.5 mm) or size needed for gauge.

SC (SC) – Insert your hook, YO, pull up a loop, pull through 2 loops on the hook.

Double Crochet (DC) – YO, insert your hook, YO pull up a loop, YO and pull through 2 loops, YO and pull through remaining two loops.

The tutorial

If you’re not familiar with the Wattle Stitch or you need a refresher we recommend THIS video.

In today’s post I will share everything you need to make the lovey, but if you’re interested in making this bigger you can get the downloadable pdf HERE.

Row Counts

The row counts for all 3 sizes are super easy. Each one is mirrored on both sides. The graphic above is a digital mock up of the finished blanket. 

Repeat from * to **

Want an easy way to keep track of each row? We sure do, so we include row trackers in our PDF’s! You can download that HERE.  I don’t know about you, but if I don’t have something to physically check off, I spend more time counting and recounting instead of crocheting! 


While the Wattle stitch is super easy to crochet, we have a few tips for ya to make it (hopefully) smooth sailing. You can always do what works the best for you, but these are what we find to be tried and true for us!

  • It’s a good idea to weave in those ends with a darning/tapestry needle instead of crocheting over the top of them, Since you skip 2 chains/stitches there isn’t a lot of opportunity for security.
  • If you’re having a hard time finding that list stitch at the end of the row to crochet into, try chaining 2 before you turn. It creates just a wee bit more height and loosens then end of the row up.
  • Not every blanket needs a border! Don’t be afraid to skip it. If you edges are straight and consistent, there’s really no need!

A few option I considered were the Double Crochet Ribbed Border, Crochet Front Bottom Loop HDC Border , but I decided to just go with 2 rows of SC and called it a day. Sometimes simple is better.
