I have another classic beautiful crochet stitch to share with you!
This is the trinity stitch, (essentially a sc3tog) that looked to me, just like little flowers all lined up in a row.
I absolutely love how it turned out and decided to call this one the Wildflower Blanket.
Mostly because of the cute nightgown I was able to find to gift with this, but more on that in a minute.
I added a few rounds of single crochet and then a picot border to finish off this baby blanket which gave it such a nice delicate finish.
I did not want to add too much extra on the border as I wanted the middle of the blanket to really be the focus.
Then, I went on the hunt for a super soft nightgown that would coordinate with the blanket.
I found this pretty one from Caden Lane. I fell in love with this gorgeous floral print and thought it would match this blanket perfectly.
Oh how I wish as a young mom I could have had these beautiful little gowns to put my babies in.
I just love finding them and matching them to a blanket.
But, more about the stitch.
I found a tutorial by Mikey of The Crochet Crowd and learned that it is very similar but not it exactly.
This trinity stitch seems to be the baby sister of the star stitch as it only has 3 “legs or points” and the Star Stitch has 5.
Before we get to the pattern, I want to emphasize the choice of hook size.
I am using a 3 weight yarn but a much larger hook than the g that is recommended.
I’d like to encourage you to make a practice swatch so you can figure out which size will give you drape and will be easy to work into the stitches.
I do have a video tutorial for you which is linked at the end of the post.

(All our patterns here on the site offer a free pdf that you can print at home for no charge.)
Bernat Softee Cotton (60% cotton, 40% acrylic, 120g / 4.2 oz, 232 meters / 254 yards, 3 weight)
4 skeins of Golden (or any color, they are all very beautiful! I don’t suggest the variegated with this pattern I don’t think you’ll see the stitches as well.)
Size G, H, I, or J hook. (You’ll need to find the correct tension for you)
Scissors, tapestry needle
Single Crochet: Insert your hook, YO and pull up a loop, YO and pull through two loops on hook.
Single Crochet 3 together (SC3TOG): Insert your hook into the designated stitch, yarn over and pull a loop back through, insert your hook into the next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, insert your hook into the next stitch, yarn over and pull a loop. Yarn over and pull through all loops on your hook.
28 x 28 inches
gauge: 8 sc3tog plus ch 1 sts and 7 rows = 4 inches. gauge taken from the blanket
This stitch needs to be loosely done. A practice swatch can help you determine what is the appropriate hook size to use. I made the base chain with a size G 4.00 mm hook and then used an I 5.5 mm size hook for the trinity stitch.
Chain 110 (or any even number if you’d like to make it larger)
Row 1: Begin in the second chain from the hook and work 1 SC. Insert hook into same space as SC just worked and pull up a loop (first leg of st). Insert hook into next chain and pull up a loop, (second leg of st) insert hook into next chain and pull up a loop (third leg of st). Yarn over and pull through all loops on hook. (SC3TOG complete) CHAIN 1.
*Insert hook into the same chain as third leg of st, and pull up a loop. Insert hook into the next chain and pull up a loop, insert hook into the next chain and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through all loops on hook. CHAIN 1.
Repeat from * across the row until there are 2 chains left. Work 1 more SC3TOG, OMIT the CH 1. SC into the final stitch where you worked the 3rd leg. CH 1 and turn.
Row 2: SC into the first stitch. Beginning in the same space as the SC just worked, insert hook and pull up a loop, insert hook into next st and pull up a loop, insert hook into next st and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through all loops. CH 1.
*SC3TOG always beginning the first leg in the same space as the third leg of the stitch previous. CH 1.
Repeat from * across the row. Omit the final CH 1, SC into the final st where you worked the 3rd leg, CH 1 and turn.
Row 3 until the blanket is the height needed: Repeat row 2.
First Round: After completing the last row, CH 1 and turn. SC into the first stitch. Work 2 SC into the next st, *skip the next st, 2 SC into the next st. Repeat from * across the row.
Work 3 SC into each corner.
Work 2 SC every other row on the sides of the blanket.
Do not join the rounds, do not turn.
Second through Fourth Rounds: Work 1 SC into each SC and 3 SC into each corner SC. Do not join or turn the rounds.
(Tip, in order to achieve a cross stitch look of the single crochets, Hook Over the yarn and pull through. See video tutorial for a demonstration.)
Fifth Round: SC into the first SC, *CH 3. SC into the same space as SC previously worked. SC into each of the next 4 sts. Repeat from * around entire blanket, join with a slip stitch and tie off.
