Crossed Double Crochets Stitch Tutorial

Here is a fun, easy, and quick to make crochet stitch. It was my mom who showed it to me. 

Moreover, she's made a beautiful baby blanket using this stitch. I will share it in my next post. 

But today, with tons of pictures I will show you how to make this stitch. The best part is that only one row needs to be repeated!

The stitch is a multiple of 3, plus 1

To make the swatch shown in this post, I started with ch 37.

Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in next ch,

go back and make dc in skipped ch prior to 1st dc,

just like this,

*skip next ch, dc in next 2 ch, 

 go back and make dc in ch skipped*, 

repeat the instructions between the asterisks across,

dc in last ch.

Row 2: ch 3, turn;

*skip next dc, dc in next 2 dc, 

 go back and make dc in skipped dc*,

 repeat the instructions between the asterisks across,

dc in top of turning ch.

Repeat Row 2.

That's it!
