How To Crochet The Easy Sedge Stitch + Video Tutorial

Sharing is caring!

The sedge stitch is an easy stitch pattern that’s made from combining basic stitches. To make it you work a single crochet, half double crochet and a double crochet all in the same stitch.

Not only is it made with basic crochet stitches, the stitch repeat is simple and it’s also has only one repeat row. So you’ll quickly have this one memorized.

This is one of my favorite stitches to work. It’s a great stitch for relaxing and easy crochet evenings. You can check out the Wild Lupine crochet washcloth pattern which features this stitch.

The Tivoli Purse crochet pattern works it up in the round. These are both great projects to work on with this stitch.

This is one of those stitches that would work well for baby blankets. Like the wattle stitch it has texture without too many holes. You can see what I mean in the Eileen baby blanket pattern.

You might also enjoy the spiked sedge stitch.
