Multiple of 3+1
4 stitches & 2 rows = 1″
Row 1: sk 2 sts (count as 1 sc), [1 hdc, 1 dc] into next st
Row 1 cont’d: sk the next 2 sts, [1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc] into the next st
Row 1 cont’d: *sk 2 sts, [1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc] into the next st;
Row 1 cont’d: Repeat from * across until there are 3 sts left
Row 1 cont’d: Sk 2 sts, 1 sc in last st, turn.
Row 2 cont’d: [1 hdc, 1 dc] into first st

This is such a pretty stitch
I love this stitch, it’s very pretty! I’d like to make a baby blanket using this stitch, or even an afghan. What would I need to do to make this larger? Thanks so much for your help?
Hi Anne! You would just have to chain a longer multiple of 3 and add 1 stitch for the foundation chain to create a blanket. What I normally do is chain until I reach close to the desired length, then begin crocheting the stitch pattern.
I love this stitch. It is so pretty. I’m not one to make blankets, but I think I will do one with this stitch. Again,Very pretty worked up. Thanks Amy.
Thank you Donna! I think it would make a beautiful blanket 🙂
Name spelled wrong in first comment. Sorry.
Good morning. I teach crocheting in a senior community and I am always looking for an easy pattern. The Sledge Stitch is the answer to my prayers. This is very easy and very pretty when using a variegated baby yarn. Thank you very much. Joby Baker
You’re very welcome Joby! I am so glad that my sedge stitch tutorial is helpful to you. I hope you try some of the other tutorials that I have as well!
