The Triad Stitch is a unique crochet stitch. It has lots of texture, but is lacy and open as well!
The structure of this stitch makes is a good one for any type of yarn, from lace weight to a super bulky. You can use it in almost anything like crochet garments or blankets and shawls.

Materials for this Tutorial:
For this tutorial today I will be using a small amount of Pima Cotton Yarn by Lion Brand Yarn. It is a worsted weight yarn. The hook shown in the video below is a 5 mm birchwood crochet hook by Rowan Yarns. However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose.

The Triad Crochet Stitch:
Ch – Chain
Dc – Double Crochet
Hdc – Half Double Crochet
Rpt – Repeat
Sc – Single Crochet
Sk – Skip
Sl St – Slip Stitch
Yo – Yarn Over
This stitch is worked in rows in this tutorial. You may work the stitch in one colour or many. I will be working the design in a solid colour.
To begin, make a slip knot and then chain your desired number of chains. For this stitch pattern you will need an even number of stitches for your foundation chain (multiples of 2).
For example, ch 26.
Sc in 2nd and in each st across, ch 4, turn.
Work your first triad stitch. Yo, insert your hook in the next st, yo and pull up a tall loop (3 lps on your hook), yo, insert your hook in the next stitch, yo and pull up another tall loop (5 lps on your hook), yo, insert your hook in the next st, yo and draw up a loop (7 lps on your hook), yo and pull through 6 loops, yo and pull through 2 loops (triad st made), ch 1, continue making triad stitches all the way across working each of the next stitches in the last st worked. Dc in the final st. Ch 1, turn.
Sc in the 1st st, *sc in the next ch-1 sp, sc in the next st; Rpt from * across, ch 4, turn.
And that’s it!
For the rest of the pattern repeat rows 2 and 3. Fasten off and weave in your ends.
