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 🙂

Skill level – easy
– Crochet hook 4 mm / G (I use the Furls hooks)
– DK yarn – 100% cotton (100 gr – 210m / 230yds)
I used King Cole Cottonsoft Crush DK – Rhododendron (2441), this yarn is very soft and nice to work with!
– Stitch marker (optional)
Finished Size – 6.5×6.5” (16.5×16.5 cm)
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
dc – double crochet
[1sc, ch1, 1dc] in 4th ch from hook, turn.
ch3, skip 1st dc, [1sc, ch1, 1dc] in next ch-1, skip next sc, [1sc, ch1, 1dc] in ch-4, turn.
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.
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.
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.
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.
ch2 (place marker), skip next sc and dc, [1sc, ch1, 1dc] in next ch1, sc2tog in next ch-1 gap and ch-2 (ch-2 of prev. row), turn.
ch1, skip next sc and dc, 1sc in next ch1. Fasten off.
