Today I want to share with you a new stitch I discovered—the Pansy Stitch!
I was looking through a stitch dictionary to find a nice stitch for a cardigan pattern I’m designing, and I stumbled upon a cluster stitch that looked interesting. However, it didn’t quite fit the “look” I wanted for my design, so I played with it until I got the exact look I wanted.
I really like the way it turned out, so I want to share the stitch pattern with you guys! Be on a look out for the cardigan; it should be out in a few months. If you want to be sure you’re notified when its available, sign up for my email list here:
One last thing before we get started. I created a bundle of 4 lace stitch patterns on Etsy which can be found here. Included is the Pansy Stitch, plus 3 OTHER lace stitch patterns written out for easy printing. Find this HERE!

- The stitch pattern is a multiple of 3+1 stitches
- The first few rows are just in written instructions; the trickier rows have a full picture tutorial.
You can potentially use any yarn and hook to do this stitch. Here is what I used:
- Worsted Weight Yarn
- G Hook
2-dc cluster: *YO, insert hook in ch indicated, YO and pull up a loop. YO, draw through 2 loops on hook; rep from * once more. YO, draw through all 3 loops on hook.
TR Cluster (tutorial for this stitch is included farther down): *YO twice, insert hook in next hdc, YO and pull up a loop, (YO, draw through 2 loops on hook) twice. Rep from * 2 times more, YO and draw through all 4 loops on hook.
Htr (half triple crochet): YO twice, insert hook in indicated st and pull up loop. YO, pull through 2 loops. YO, pull through 3 loops.
Ch 2 (counts as a hdc, here and throughout). Hdc in each st across. Turn.
Row 6 (full tutorial):
Ch 3, tr in next stitch.
Ch 3, work 2-dc cluster (see special sts) into 3rd ch from hook.
Work TR Cluster into next three stitches. Follow next four pictures (step 3-6) for a full tutorial on this stitch.
Now, simply keep repeating steps 2-6 all across the row! You should be alternating between 2-dc clusters and TR clusters, until 2 hdc are left.
