How to Crochet the Wheat Stitch

I can hardly believe it is the last day of November! Today I get to share the last stitch for November, a really beautiful crochet stitch using more puffs! Let’s learn together how to crochet the wheat stitch!

In case you haven’t heard, this past month of November I have been focusing on Puff stitches here on the blog! I worked up 4 different swatches that use the puff stitch in a variety of ways. Here is a quick reference list to the other stitches I’ve made:

This new stitch, the Wheat Stitch, is probably the most complex of the 4 stitches! It’s not difficult to make, but it has a few more repeating rows to get the nice pattern you see below:

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.

Want to get rid of the ads? This stitch pattern is available as apart of a PDF bundle with 3 OTHER stitch patterns—all my November stitches! From this PDF, you can easily print out the patterns, or view it without ads.

This stitch is also apart of a larger series called the Desert Blossom Stitch Along, which is running throughout all of 2019! Be sure to join the community in my Facebook Group HERE.

You can also view a Master List of all the stitch patterns that have been released! This way, you’ll be able to see pictures of all the individual stitches and learn your favorites!
