What to make with the Lattice Crochet Stitch
The Lattice stitch is a beautiful textured crochet stitch. It creates a thick yet not stiff fabric. The wrong side is plain and not particularly attractive, it is best used in projects where it is hidden such as pillows, rugs, or garments.

Sometimes it’s just easier to have a stitch dictionary on hand when you’re deciding on your next project rather than having to search online and remember where you saved that stitch you want to use.
Before You Start your Lattice Crochet Stitch Pattern
- 5mm / US H-8 hook
- Hobbii Amigo (DK weight 3, 100% acrylic, 175 m / 191 yd, 50 g / 1.75 oz)
- Tapestry needle to weave in the ends. I love this set as it has different eye sizes for different yarn thicknesses, and it comes in a small tube which is very convenient so I don’t lose them.
- 6 stitch markers
The patterns are written for a 15cm by 15cm / 6” by 6” square.
The pattern needs a multiple of 6 number of stitches; your starting chain will be a multiple of 6 + 1 for an extra turning chain.
The gauge for this pattern is 17 st by 16.5 rows in stitch pattern for a 10 cm by 10 cm square (4” by 4”).
This pattern uses US notations.
- st = stitch
- ch = chain
- sc = single crochet
- fptr = front post treble crochet
- skip = miss
Work instructions between  the indicated number of times or until the end of the row.
The final number of stitches is indicated at the end of the row between < >.
The turning ch 1, ch 2, ch 3 don’t count as a stitch throughout the pattern except if mentioned otherwise.
Stitches above a ch-1 space are worked in the ch-1 space except if mentioned otherwise.
The pattern is written in crochet shorthand. For example:
- “sc 1” means to single crochet in the next stitch,
- “sc 2” means to single crochet in each of the next 2 stitches,
- and “2 sc” means to single crochet twice in the next st.
All pictures show lefthanded crochet. All stitches are symmetrical and can be worked by both right and lefthanded crocheters.
