This is a free tutorial for the Tri-Squares crochet stitch. The tutorial covers how to make the stitch in the round and flat. The tutorial contains photos and videos. This stitch uses front post double crochet (fpdc) and back post double crochet (bpdc) to create a block-like texture.
Don’t you just love a good stitch with an obvious name? Sometimes the name of a stitch can be confusing or hard to remember. This is because it seemingly has nothing to do with what’s actually going on in the stitch.
Not so for Tri-Squares crochet stitch! As the name suggests, each square is made of three stitches, double crochets to be precise.
From a distance, it reminds me of a checkerboard pattern without needing all of the color changes.
The reversing of the front post double crochet and back post double crochet stitches also adds a cool 3-D effect.
If you love stitches with obvious names, this is the stitch for you! Please read below for the complete tutorial.

Step 1: You start out with a chain that has a multiple of 6 plus 2 (subtract the 2chains if you are going in rounds).
Then, starting from the third chain of the hook, crochet 1 dc in each chain. Chain 2 and turn.
Step 2: Place 1 FPDC (front post double crochet) in the next 3 stitches.
Step 3: Next place 1 BPDC (back post double crochet) in the next 3 stitches.
Step 4: Now repeat steps 2 and 3 until the end of the row. Chain 2 and turn.
Step 5: Now you will crochet the opposite stitch of what you see, no matter if you do this in rows or rounds.
So, if you see a FPDC, crochet a BPDC, and vise versa. In the example below, you will crochet 1 BPDC in the next 3 stitches.
Step 6: Then you will crochet 1 FPDC in the next 3 stitches.
Step 7: Repeat steps 5 and 6 till the end of the row. Ch 2 and turn and repeat steps 2 thru7 until you finished your project.
