How to Crochet the Triple Ridge Stitch

A new crochet stitch tutorial here on the blog: let’s learn how to crochet the Triple Ridge stitch! This is a super easy stitch pattern that uses a whole bunch of back loop rows to create unique ridges!

Whew! I can hardly believe it is November. We are getting so close to the end of 2019, and therefore the end of the Desert Blossom Stitch Along! It is crazy to me how fast this year has gone.

In case you’re wondering, this stitch for today is actually included in the October bundle. I know it’s confusing, but basically, I got super behind last month, and since there are 5 weeks in November, I decided to postpone things for a week. So next Saturday the official November stitches will be starting! 🙂

For now though, we can enjoy this super simple pattern: the Triple Ridge Stitch!

So, let’s talk about this stitch a little bit. As I said before, it uses the back loop technique. However, it uses it in a unique way, because we’ll do different size stitches (tr, sc, etc) to give the ridges different heights! It’s super simple in that there is no specific stitch multiple—you can make a foundation row with ANY number of chains/fsc.

If you make this stitch, please share pictures!! I absolutely LOVE it when I’m able to see what you guys are making! You can post in the Facebook group, or tag me on Instagram.
