This is a rather unique stitch, wouldn’t you say? It’s a lot of fun to make and even cooler to look at with that 3 dimensional effect. This 3D stitch works nicely for blankets, scarves, shawls, and more. Definitely is nice when you need some texture. Although this stitch pattern may look different and new, it is actually based upon a doily pattern from a needle craft periodical from the late 1800s that my friend Lorrie Popow graciously found for me.
For this sample I’m using worsted weight yarn. And that would work great for a blanket. But I think this stitch pattern would look really nice done in a fine baby yarn or a mohair yarn as a scarf. There’s a lot of squishy goodness in this stitch!
If you are wondering, how did you do that?! You’ll find out this stitch is not too difficult. The effect is created by doing a series of front post double crochet together stitches. Then you offset those stitches every other row. If you already know how to crochet a double crochet, chain, and dc2tog type of stitches, you’ll find this rather easy to make!

Here’s a nice image to pin on your Pinterest boards.
- Worsted weight yarn.
I’m using some leftover worsted weight yarn for this sample. I find that the worsted weight is really nice for blankets with this stitch pattern. If you were to do a scarf, I happen to like the finer (thinner) yarns with this stitch.
- Size H 5.0 mm crochet hook.
In this sample I’m using an H size crochet hook. If you are using a different type of yarn than worsted, just use the recommended hook that’s listed on the yarn label.
- Yarn needle.
If you plan on changing colors like I did in this, you’ll want to keep a yarn needle on hand to weave in all of the ends.
Very helpful for cutting off the weaved-in ends!
