Wattle Stitch Crochet Ideas

Wattle stitch caught my eye when I was researching some other crochet techniques, because it’s simple, repetitive and very cute! Delicate texture it creates reminds me of little twigs, moss, or grass.

Learn how to crochet this stitch with the help of free crochet patterns and tutorials, and get inspired with my selection of the most beautiful colorways in the Roundup section!

How do you crochet wattle stitch?

There are two versions of this stitch – regular and corner-to-corner. Both of them are based on the same premise, which is working single crochet, chain stitch and double crochet into one stitch, but then skipping some to keep the rows horizontal. This pair is uneven in height, and that’s exactly what makes this technique result in these twig-like motifs.

What can I use this stitch for?

Wattle stitch appears mostly in blanket patterns, but it’s also fantastic for dishcloths and other kitchen accessories. You can make it with almost any kind of yarn, so it may be squishy and bulky, or delicate and drapey.

Is this stitch hard to learn?

Not at all! Wattle stitch is great for adventurous beginners, because it uses only basic stitches. It may be hard to find the ch-1 spaces at first, but you will be able to mindlessly go on once you know how to do it.
Check out Crochet Roundup below for more inspiration, because that’s where I’ve gathered the most stunning projects and free resources!

Wattle Stitch Projects

Wattle Stitch Washcloth by Lullaby Lodge

Washcloths are small and quick to make, so it’s a fantastic way to see the stitch. You can then easily decide whether you want to make something bigger with this stitch or not. Lullaby Lodge’s cotton dishcloth features two spring-inspired colors, but you can try dark palettes as well! As you can see, cotton yarn makes the stitches very prominent.

This project is based on free crochet pattern called Wattle Stitch Washcloth by Erica Dietz, available on 5littlemonsters.com and on ravelry.com. To learn more about this particular version, click the link right below the photo.

Wattle Stitch Blanket by AnneMarie Defayette

Anne Marie decided to make a simple white blanket, but spruced it up with some fantastic hand-dyed yarn. As you can see, the color changes create little specks that give depth to the slim stripes. In the photo you can see how nicely these two go together, so keep it in mind as a reference for your future projects.

The Wattle Stripe Baby Blanket by Elizabeth Bass

Whoever thought color blocking is a one-season idea must be very surprised, because it’s still here after all these years! Putting contrasting colors next to each other is a foolproof way to end up with an eye-catching design. Below you can see Elizabeth’s blanket, but I recommend you taking a look at this simple picot crochet edging!

Pattern for this blanket was available for purchase on Elizabeth’s Etsy page here: etsy.com, but her shop is currently on hold.

As you can see, not only is this a perfect stitch to showcase this unusual colorway, but also a great last minute gift.

    • hi Gail, you can turn off notifications by clicking on the red bell button in the left bottom corner of my website, but I’m sure you don’t get more than one a day from me. Please check other websites you may have allowed notifications from and turn them off, as I cannot do it for you. As with the ‘hide ad’ problem, I’m not sure how to help, because it works fine on my end, but I’ll make sure to check it twice with my tech guys 🙂
