The crochet Wedge Stitch almost resembles crochet leaves! It is worked by working long chains, that are then worked into to form triangles.
And the wonderful thing about this stitch is that even though it looks complicated, it is quite easy using basic crochet stitches. The most challenging part of the stitch pattern is working into the chain stitches.

The stitch pattern is similar on the back and the front. It is not quite a solid fabric but would still work well in a variety of projects including your more lacy designs. You may work it in a variety of yarn weights and solid or multiple colours
