Trinity Stitch Crochet Tutorial

Sharing is caring!

This Trinity Stitch Crochet Tutorial will show you how easy this textured stitch is to create. Once you get the hang of this pattern, it is a repeat of row two. It is quite fun and easy to crochet. As I work on expanding my crochet skills, adding new stitches to my skillset is one of my goals this year.

What does The Trinity Crochet Stitch Look Like?

The look is a nice texture with a bit of puff and three vertical bars extending into the stitches in the row below. While this stitch is puffy like the berry stitch and the bobble stitch, it is a little bit more of a subtle puff.  Yet it looks like little stars or flowers.

This crochet stitch is made up of clusters of single crochet stitches that start in the same stitch the previous stitch ended. Once you get going, this is an easy stitch to work.

Basics of the Beautiful Trinity Stitch

If you are looking for a new crochet stitch to try, the Trinity stitch is a beautiful, unique stitch that is perfect for confident beginners or intermediate crocheters.

This tutorial will show you how to work the single crochet 3 together that starts in the same stitch that you just worked. Achieve a beautiful textured slightly puffy stitch that feels amazing too. Once you have mastered this stitch, you can use it to create baby blankets, large Afghans, scarves, and other pieces of apparel and accessories.

What Does the Word Trinity Mean?

Trinity means a cluster of three things. Therefore, since there are three vertical bars per stitch, the Crochet Trinity Stitch is a grouping of three stitches.

This makes sense to me. So, now you know why this stitch got its name. Now you just need to get started. Once you get the rhythm going this stitch is easy as pie.

Video Tutorial and Photo Tutorial

You will find the links to my YouTube Channel for the video tutorials for both left and right hand crocheters below the written directions. Additionally, within the written directions, there are photos showing the stitches and where to put your hook to help you successfully complete this beautiful stitch.

Today I worked this pattern in a solid color; however, this would be a lovely crochet project to change colors every few rows as well.

Skill Level

Gauge

Gauge will depend on the yarn and crochet hook that you choose to use.

Materials

Today I used a Caron Simply Soft yarn and a Size J crochet hook. This still would work well for all types of yarn from fingering to chunky. It is a very forgiving stitch pattern, just make sure to have your stitches a bit on the looser side so you can get your hook in the stitches in the row before.

Crochet Tutorial Notes

This stitch is worked in even stitches, multiples of 2

The first stich is worked in the second chain from the hook.

In the last single crochet three together, do not work the final chain 1, rather work a single crochet in the last stitch that you just worked. (The last stitch of the row).

This pattern is a repeat of row 2 until you reach your desired size.

Try and keep your stitches a bit looser. This will help you be able to get your hook into the stitches in the previous row.

Turn at the end of each row.

If you are going to change the yarn to a different color, I would add the new yarn at the end of the row just before working the chain stitch for next row.
