The Clover Crochet Stitch utilizes color to create it’s awesome effect. If you’ve ever done tapestry crochet then you already know how to carry your color with you and change mid row.

 

If not then I hope the video tutorial will help you learn this very useful way of using color in crochet. Once you learn this method you’re another step up at becoming a crocheting pro! I encourage you beginner advanced crocheters to give it a try.

Clover Crochet Stitch – Free Crochet Stitch pattern


 

 

To Start:
Multiples of 3 + 1

 

Row 1 with 1st color

HDC in 4th ch from hook

HDC 2 more times in same st and ch 1

*Skip 3 and HDC 3 into next st.*

repeat for row.

 

NOTE because we are working with odd and not even numbers, the ending of the row and a beginning of a row may vary. So I will tell you both ways how to end and how to begin a differing row.

BUT only for the ending of this row and the beginning of the next, because to do that through the whole pattern would just be confusing to everyone. But you are going to run into 1 or 2 options so here they are.

 

End of row:

ch 1, sk a stitch and HDC in ending ch. (OR you’ll HDC 3 in last space.)

We’re going to be adding our second color now.

This is how you will add your new color into the beginning of a row.

Chain 1 with 1st color the bring the 2nd color back up through the slip knot (the loop) and ch 1 with the new color. Now you’re ready to use the new color

 

 

 

Row 2

ch 1 with new color and HDC 2 and ch 1 in next space, working over your 2nd color to carry it with you. (OR Ch 3 and HDC 3 in next space over)

Repeat pattern of color changes through the row.

End of row: Work last set of 3 HDC’s in the ending ch 2 space. Ch 3 and turn

I ended with my 2nd color. If you end with your first color, that’s okay. You will just have to be sure to make sure you’re using the correct color when starting your next row. Use picture for color reference if you need. Keep in mind you are making a clover in the color pattern.

 

 

 

Row 3

You can cut the 1st color here. Just using your 2nd color,

*TIP* Crochet OVER the tails of the previous row where you carried your yarn along with you, it will make for a much cleaner look.
