Corner To Corner Crochet Wattle Stitch

crochet wattle stitch washcloth free pattern

The Wattle crochet stitch has such a beautiful texture, it looks like a million little flowers! It’s a great stitch for a washcloth or a very soft blanket.
The Wattle stitch consists only of sc, dc, and ch, which makes it repetitive and so easy, totally mindless crocheting.
I decided to create the corner to corner version of this crochet stitch when I wanted to make a blanket using the Wattle stitch. What I like in a C2C (corner to corner) method is the flexibility you have, you can start your project and decided the size as you go, you don’t need to calculate stitches for the beginning chain.

For this tutorial, we’ll make a washcloth 🙂
If you prefer, there’s a video tutorial at the end of the written instructions!

Washcloth Pattern

Ch4
ROW 1:
[1sc, ch1, 1dc] in 4th ch from hook, turn.


ROW 2:
ch3, skip 1st dc, [1sc, ch1, 1dc] in next ch-1, skip next sc, [1sc, ch1, 1dc] in ch-4, turn.


ROW 3:
ch3, skip 1st dc, [1sc, ch1, 1dc] in next ch-1, skip next sc and dc, [1sc, ch1, 1dc] in next ch-1, [1sc, ch1, 1dc] in ch-3, turn.


ROW 4:
ch3, * skip next dc, [1sc, ch1, 1dc] in next ch-1, skip next sc; repeat from * to ch-3 [1sc, ch1, 1dc] in ch-3, turn.
repeat row 4 until the side of the triangle measures 6.5” (16.5 cm).

When you reach the desired length, start decreasing:
** Place the stitch marker at the beginning of each ch2 so you can easily find it for the decrease stitch.

ROW 5:
ch2 (place marker), * skip next dc, [1sc, ch1, 1dc] in next ch1, skip next sc; repeat from * to ch-3, 1sc in ch-3, turn.


ROW 6:
ch2 (place marker), skip next sc and dc, [1sc, ch1, 1dc] in next ch1, * skip next sc and dc, [1sc, ch1, 1dc] in ch-1; repeat from * until last ch-1 gap (don’t work into last ch-1 gap). sc2tog in next ch-1 gap and ch-2 (ch-2 of prev. row), turn.

Continue working row 6 until you have only 2 [1sc, ch1, 1dc] in your row (total of 9 sts) – see below pic.

    Enjoyed this easy pattern. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Shirley I just left a reply for Agat/Gootie asking her if she has a video tutorial like on youtube that shows you how to do the wattle stitch. Do you know if he does? I have tried a couple times already to just look at her pics posted here and read her steps but I’m not getting mine correct. Maybe you could show me, since you found this to be easy? I can Facetime if that’s helpful for you?

      Thanks in advance!
      Karen

  2. Do you have a video tutorial like on you tube or somewhere that shows you how to do this wattle stitch? I have looked at your photos and read the step by step instructions but I’m not getting it correctly. Thanks in advance! Karen

    1. Hi Karen,
      Sorry, I don’t have a video tutorial for this.
      Are you having trouble with the stitch itself, or the increase/decrease of the stitch?

      1. Merrie says:

        I put stitch markers in the ch1 spaces as I was crocheting. Then I looked carefully at what they looked like, was surrounding by, on the next round. It worked really well for me.

  3. Laura L Roettgen says:

    How do i make the corner to corner wattle stitch pattern into a rectangle for a blanket ?

    1. Hi Laura,
      In order to work the pattern as a rectangle, work pattern until row 4, repeat row 4 until reaching the desired width.
      Work the next rows as follows:
      1)
      ch2 (place marker), * skip next dc, [1sc, ch1, 1dc] in next ch1, skip next sc; repeat from * to ch-3, [1sc, ch1, 1dc] in ch-3, turn.
      2) ch3, * skip next dc, [1sc, ch1, 1dc] in next ch-1, skip next sc; repeat from * until last ch-1 gap (don’t work into last ch-1 gap). sc2tog in next ch-1 gap and ch-2 (ch-2 of prev. row), turn
      3)
      ch2 (place marker), skip next sc and dc, [1sc, ch1, 1dc] in next ch1, * skip next sc and dc, [1sc, ch1, 1dc] in ch-1; repeat from * o ch-3 [1sc, ch1, 1dc] in ch-3, turn.

      Repeat rows 2-3 until reaching the desired length, continue working from row 6 of the original pattern.

  4. Christine says:

    Are you decreasing on each end of every row? I did that & it wasn’t right. The decrease side was too short.

    1. Hi Christine,
      You decrease at the beginning of the row when skipping both sc and dc, and also at the end of the row when doing the sc2tog.
      Hope that helps 🙂

        How many yards of dk do you think I would need for a blanket? Maybe 48” x 60”.

        1. Agat says:

          I made a baby blanket (30″x36″) and used 1380 yds (6 skeins) of DK yarn. So for a 48″x60″ blanket, you’ll need about 3680 yds (16 skeins).

  5. Linda B says:

    I love this pattern, but row 6 instructions are obliterated by photographs. I am struggling to get the decreases correct at the ends of the rows. The photographs are not clear enough without words. Help! Trying to make a baby blanket. Wattle C2C decreases different from other C2C.

    1. Hi Linda,
      I’m not sure why you can’t see the instructions for row 6.. very strange!
      Just in case, I’m copying it in here:
      ROW 6:
      ch2 (place marker), skip next sc and dc, [1sc, ch1, 1dc] in next ch1, * skip next sc and dc, [1sc, ch1, 1dc] in ch-1; repeat from * until last ch-1 gap (don’t work into last ch-1 gap). sc2tog in next ch-1 gap and ch-2 (ch-2 of prev. row), turn.

    I think it is a perfect stitch pattern for a beginner to hone in the essentials of crocheting. I’m a beginner myself, and left handed as well. My only struggle was that my work curved, making a fan shape rather than a triangle. I’m working with a stretchy wool, so I don’t think it’s too tight, any thoughts on what I’m doing wrong?

    1. Agat says:

      Hi Kara,
      It sounds like maybe you’re skipping some stitches?
      When you increase, from row 3 and on, make sure that in each row you increase the number of wattles (sc,ch1,dc) in 2: one at the beginning of the row and one at the end.
      I hope it helps.
