Welcome to Creations by Courtney for the Diamond Trellis crochet stitch tutorial!

It’s has been a goal for 2021 to create more tutorials to accompany the published crochet patterns, and I’m even working on videos to go along with it. 🤭😆

The Diamond Trellis Stitch or Diamond Stitch is created in a four-row repeat using front post treble crochet, double crochet and single crochet stitches.

The third row is likely the trickiest row because it set ups the beginning of the diamonds, but once the first row of front post treble stitches are made and remembering to work into the ch-1, it’s an easy pattern to remember and make.

Multiples needed for the stitch

The Diamond Trellis Stitch requires a multiple of 4+3 when starting with a foundation chain that will be worked into.

If you’re like me and like to use foundation stitches whenever possible, this stitch will require a multiple of 4+2 in foundation single crochet.

Notes

  • The first row of front post treble stitches will be worked around the first row of single crochet, and foundation single crochet are not as easy to work around.
  • The CSDC of each row is included in the total st count. It can be replaced with a ch 3, but a noticeable gap will form. 
  • Be sure to sk the st behind each FPtr and FPtr2tog.
  • All FPtr2tog have 3 skipped sts btw each leg of the st to create half of the diamond shape.
  • All FPtr2tog and FPtr are linked to create the diamond shape.
