The crochet Sedge Stitch is one of our favorite stitches for baby blankets! It’s soft and puffy and works up fast.
That pattern is the Crochet Sedge Stripes Baby Blanket made by my daughter Nicolina.
This is the Sedge Stitch Baby Blanket made by my daughter Hannah. Click either photo or the highlighted links for patterns to the blankets including the borders they used.
Stitches (US TERMS)
Single Crochet (SC): insert hook, yarn over and pull a loop back through, yarn over and pull through all loops on hook.
Half Double Crochet (HDC): yarn over, insert hook, yarn over and pull a loop back through, yarn over and pull through all loops on hook.
Double Crochet (DC): yarn over, insert hook, yarn over and pull a loop back through, yarn over and pull through first two loops on hook, yarn over and pull through final two loops on hook.
Start with a chain in any multiple of the number three.
Row 1: In the second chain from the hook, work one HDC and one DC, skip two chains, in the next chain work “SC, HDC, DC.” *Skip two chains and repeat “SC, HDC, DC” into the next space. Repeat from * across to the end until there is one chain left. Work 1 SC and turn.
Row 2: Chain one (this counts as your first SC). Work 1 HDC and 1 DC into the top of the SC from the row below (the last stitch you made before you turned.) *Skip over the DC and HDC, “SC, HDC, DC” into the SC.
(Tip”: You’ll always be looking for the SC to do your “SC, HDC, DC” into.)
Repeat the pattern from * across the row ending in the last stitch with one single crochet.
