Lucky Clover Sedge Stitch Crochet Blanket

Hello and Welcome!

I will confess. This color way happened by accident. The leftover yarn from Orla’s Wattle Stitch Blanket was sitting on my desk with some new yarn that I needed (wanted) from the store. I kept looking at it like it was some sentient being calling my name. For. Days. Then it just kind of clicked that they would all play nice together, so here we are.

Since I had just recently finished a wattle stitch blanket for this month, I thought it would be cool to switch it up (by switching it up, I mean I replaced a chain stitch with a half double crochet, but let’s not get technical) with the sedge stitch.


You don’t need to go looking for a lucky clover when you can make one!

What is the Sedge 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

SC – Single Crochet


CH – Chain

HDC – Half Double Crochet


ST – Stitch

DC – Double Crochet


REP – Repeat


**All stitches and abbreviations are in U.S. Terms.

Gauge: 4 rounds = 4” (10cm)

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

Single Crochet (SC) – Insert your hook, YO pull up a loop, YO and pull through 2 loops.

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

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.



In the 3rd chain from the hook, work 1 HDC and 1 DC. *Skip two chains. In the next chain work SC, HDC, DC. Repeat from * across the row until there is one chain left. Work 1 SC into the final chain. CH 1 and turn.


Work 1 HDC and 1 DC into the top of the SC of the previous row. *Skip two stitches, then SC, HDC, DC into the next stitch. Repeat from * across the row ending in the last stitch with 1 SC. CH 1 and turn.

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 Sedge 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 last 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!


I simply added 1 rows of single crochet and 2 rows of herringbone half double crochet. Easy peasy.


Sometimes it’s easier to shop your stash so we worked out some alternative brands for ya. We’ve matched each one in person so we know first hand they’ll play nice and look lovely! To see the exact amounts of each you will need to purchase and doweled the pdf. You can do that HERE.
