Hi, there! Hope you are having a nice day. Mine always gets better when I think on my crochet hooks, yarn and a big cup of coffee. Am I right? Since we went through almost all of the basic crochet stitches already, I think ist’s time to start learning more complex ones. This textured sc, hdc and dc crochet stitch pattern is just perfect for that. We will refresh our memory with implementing all the basic stitched into this beautiful and actually very common crochet stitch. You can find it in almost every crochet book out there. Just imagine it on a sweater or dress or a baby romper. I would never guess, it’s crochet and not a knit stitch pattern.


  • YARN: For this tutorial, I am using DK weight or also called Light Worsted weight yarn. I choose Fibra Natura Cottonwood 100% organic cotton yarn, but you can use any yarn you like since your choice will probably depend on the project you are making.
  • CROCHET HOOK: I am using DK weight yarn and with that my Brittany Birch 4.00mm or G/6 crochet hook.
  • OTHER: Yarn needle, scissors, stitch markers.

All of my crochet patterns and tutorials are written in US crochet terms.


  • St/Sts – Stitch/Stitches
  • Ch – Chain
  • Sc – Single Crochet
  • Hdc – Half Double Crochet
  • Dc – Double crochet


  • This stitch pattern is written in rows, but you can change that by simply join each row with the slip stitch that represents your joining stitch. Then create your turning chain and continue with the next row/round.
  • Always start your row with a chain 1 and 1 sc, 1 hdc and 1 dc. Finish it with a sc.
  • Are you just trying new crochet stitches? Make a square 20×20 cm or 8×8 inch big using 100% cotton yarn and use it a kitchen cloth. ?


Create a foundation chain of a multiple number of chains. Add two additional chains, one will represent your turning chain. Start in the 2nd chain from the hook.

Row 1: Work 1 sc into each stitch all the way to the end of the row. Ch 1. Turn.

Row 2: Repeat (1 sc, 1 hdc, and 1 dc into the same stitch, skip next two) as many times as you need. End with a sc into the last one. Ch 1. Turn.

Continue repeating this row as many times as you need to achieve the desired length.

Would you happen to know of a beanie hat that would have this same stitch pattern? (sc, hdc, dc)

Does this stitch pattern have a name? I’ve been searching all over trying to find this pattern

Hi Nicole, I am not sure if it has a special name. 🙂

Your foundation chain says to make a foundation chain in a multiple number of chains. Add two. What is the multiple number please?

What is the stitch multiple?

Doroteja December 14, 2022 - 11:20

How many times do you want to repeat the initial sequence. 😊

The multiple number for the chain is however long you want your project to be then add two(which will be the first stitch). I’m doing fingerless gloves so am only using 24 chains with an add two. You can chain 150 then add two. Hope this makes sense.

Hi is there a pattern for a baby blanket using this textured pattern

Doroteja May 30, 2022 - 16:45

No, unfortunately, I don’t have that pattern. But you can start with the foundation chain that represents how wide your blanket will be and continue with the rows to reach the desired height of your blanket. 😊
