Trinity Stitch (T-st):
This tutorial will demonstrate how to work T-st into single crochets (sc) and how to work sc into the T-st as it is used in our Prayer Shawl.
Before we begin, take note in the photo above how this stitch is constructed. Three loops are drawn up through three stitches then brought together in one. The T-st in this tutorial is worked into the single crochet stitches from the previous row.
1. Insert hook into same stitch as last stitch made. See photo above.
2. Draw a loop up (2 loops on hook). See photo above.
3. Insert hook into next stitch. See photo above.
4. Draw a loop up (3 loops on hook). See photo above.
5. Insert hook into next stitch. See photo above.
6. Draw a loop up (4 loops on hook). See photo above.
7. Yarn over hook (yoh). See photo above.
8. Draw yoh through all 4 loops on hook. See photo above.
9. Chain 1. See photo above.
10. One Trinity stitch complete!
Tip: When drawing loops up through the stitch, make sure the loop is brought up to the same height as the initial loop. This ensures you have a consistent gauge and a properly fashioned stitch.
Written instructions for the T-st – (Trinity stitch): Sc3tog by inserting hook into same st as last st made, draw up loop, [insert hook into next st, draw up loop] 2 xs, yoh, draw yoh through four loops on hook, ch 1. (one T-st made)
Single Crochet in Trinity Stitch:
Working single crochets (sc) in your T-st is easier if you work 2 sc in the stitch space and skip the chain. Not only is this easier, it opens up the T-st making it more beautiful and pronounced. Look closely at the photo above. Notice the T-sts in blue and the 2 sc in green. The ch is right next to the 2nd sc, the T-st is right next to the ch.
1. Insert hook into T-st. See photo above.
2. Work 1 sc. See photo above.
3. Work a second sc in the same space. See photo above.
Happy crocheting, everyone!
