The Floret Stitch is a beautiful stitch design with a subtle texture. The end result is a beautiful solid fabric.
And the best thing about the floret stitch is that it is a really simple pattern to work!
The pattern is a simple two row repeat. The stitches used in the design include the double crochet stitch and the slip stitch.
You’re going to love the Floret Stitch! I would also love to hear what kind of projects you have in mind for this stitch.
I believe this stitch would make a very pretty summer top worked in a light coloured cotton yarn!

You may use any hook and yarn combination though for your project!
This stitch is worked in rows in this tutorial. At the end of each row you will need to chain 1 or 3 (depending on the row being worked) and turn your work.

To begin, make a slip knot and then chain your desired number of chains. For this stitch pattern you will need a multiple of two (2) stitches plus three (3) for your foundation chain.
For my swatch I will be making a foundation chain of 23 stitches.
Once you have chained the desired number of stitches, work 1 double crochet stitch into the fourth chain from your hook and then in each chain all the way across.
At the end of the row, chain 1 and turn your work.
Work 1 slip stitch into the first stitch, double crochet into the next stitch. Repeat this across: Slip stitch into the next stitch and double crochet into the next stitch.
At the end of your row you will work your final slip stitch into the top of the chain 3.
Chain 3 and turn your work.
Skip the first stitch (the chain 3 at the beginning always counts as a stitch), double crochet into each stitch all the way across.
Work your final double crochet stitch into the final slip stitch.
Chain 1 and turn your work.
And that’s it!
For the rest of the pattern you are simply going to repeat those last two rows!
