I’m ALL about stitches with texture and therefore the Floret Stitch is an absolute favourite of mine. There’s just something so wonderfully tactile about running your fingers over a stitch with some oomph. The Floret Stitch is a quick and easy way to add a beautiful texture, but without being too complicated, so it’s suitable for all skill levels! Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro, you can use this stitch to add some terrific texture to your blankets, cushions, scarves and cowls.

more textured surface stitches to try

I absolutely ADORE stitches that add texture. While I love colour, texture will always have my heart. There’s just something deliciously cosy about that soft squish you get when touching a textured piece of crochet.

moss/linen stitch

The comforting cosy texture of the moss stitch is perfect for winter garments, blankets and borders for blankets. This is a great stitch for beginners as it only requires double crochet.

spider stitch

This sturdy versatile stitch is another great beginner friendly surface texture stitch to get your hook into. It is only a one row repeat, so once you’ve got to grips with it, you’ll be well away!

Another gorgeous cosy stitch is the Herringbone Treble stitch. This has some beautiful detail and is really tactile in a chunkier yarn. It’s great for projects that need a little weight to them such as a blanket or cushion as it makes a warm and dense fabric.

feathered crochet

A great stitch for cowls and blankets is the feathered stitch as it looks great on both sides! This cosy dense stitch makes a dense and squishy fabric and is an easy one row repeat, perfect for beginners.
