How to Crochet: Fleur-de-lis (Saints) Stitch | Crochet Video Tutorial for Beginners | Stitch Explorer Series

Welcome to Saturday Stitch Explorers! This week’s stitch is the Fleur-de-lis (Saints) Stitch. This is a new stitch created by yours truly! This stitch was super fun to create. After I was finished it reminded me of a fleur-de-lis, hence the name :).

BUT….. fleur-de-lis is kind of hard to remember the spelling so let’s call it both the Saints Stitch and Fleur-de-lis Stitch I love creating new stitch patterns, but the one thing I don’t like about it is the math. Whoever thought crocheting would be so filled with math right?

The Fleur-de-lis (Saints) Stitch creates a nice fabric that would be great for blankets or even a nice sweater to wear over a tank top. It’s airy and thick, similar to the Baby Bunny Stitch pictured below.

Fleur-de-lis (Saints) Stitch by Tasha Margette

For this tutorial I used I Love This Cotton in white, with a 4.5 mm hook.

The Fleur-de-lis (Saints) stitch combines basic stitches in a simple repeat to create this beautiful stitch pattern.

sc2tog – single crochet 2 together (a decrease by 1)

*insert hook in next st. yo, draw up a loop* 2 times. yo, pull through all 3 loops on hook.


+ Pattern:


Pattern works in multiples of 5 + 1, using the foundation single crochet.

For the tutorial I used foundation single crochet (fsc) – the pattern for starting with a chain is below this one.

Row 1: fsc 26.

Row 2:  ch 1, turn.  sc 2, *ch 3, sk 2**, sc 3* – rep *…*, ending rep at **, then sc 2.

Row 3:  ch 1, turn.  hdc 1, ch 1, sk 1, *(ps 1, sc 1, ps 1) in ch 3 sp, ch 1, sk 1, hdc 1 in next**, ch 1, sk 1* – rep *…*, ending rep at **

Row 4:  ch 1, turn.  hdc 1 in 1st hdc.  *hdc 1 in ch 1 sp, hdc 1 in next ps.  ps 1 in next st, hdc 1 in next ps, hdc 1 in next ch 1 sp, hdc 1 in next hdc*, rep –  *…* to end.

Row 5:  ch 1, turn, sc 1 in ea st across, sc2tog in every 5th st.

rep rows 2 – 5 until your work is the height you desire.

Working the pattern with a chain.

chain any multiple of 5 + 1 chains, then add 1.

If you want to create a blanket or garment and know what size you want to make, but not sure how to figure out how many chains to start with, check out my Multiples Calculator. It will calculate how many total chains you need to start your project based on *your* hook and *your* yarn. :D.

Row 1: starting in 2nd ch from hook, sc 1 in each chain across.

Row 2:  ch 1, turn.  sc 2, *ch 3, sk 2**, sc 3* – rep *…*, ending rep at **, then sc 2.

Row 3:  ch 1, turn.  hdc 1, ch 1, sk 1, *(ps 1, sc 1, ps 1) in ch 3 sp, ch 1, sk 1, hdc 1 in next**, ch 1, sk 1* – rep *…*, ending rep at **

Row 4:  ch 1, turn.  hdc 1 in 1st hdc.  *hdc 1 in ch 1 sp, hdc 1 in next ps.  ps 1 in next st, hdc 1 in next ps, hdc 1 in next ch 1 sp, hdc 1 in next hdc*, rep –  *…* to end.

Row 5:  ch 1, turn, sc 1 in ea st across, sc2tog in every 5th st.

rep rows 2 – 5

Congratulations! You’re finished!
