Double Crochet Crossed Stitch

The Double Crochet Crossed Stitch consists of a row of crossed double crochet stitches that alternates with a row of single crochet stitches. The beginning of each double crochet row is chain 3 (which counts as the first dc in that row; the end of each double crochet row is a solitary dc in the last stitch of the previous row. Single crochet rows always start with chain 1, and end with a single crochet in the last stitch of the row.





Foundation Chain:  Make a multiple of 2 chain stitches (+2 more chains)
Step 1:  Double crochet in 5th chain from hook, then dc in 4th chain from hook, crossing over the double crochet you just made.
Step 2:  Skip next chain (or stitch), double crochet in next chain (or stitch); cross over dc just made, and dc in missed chain (or stitch).

 

{Repeat Step 2 across row, ending with 1 dc in last chain or stitch.}
Step 3:  Chain 1, turn; single crochet across row
Step 4:  Chain 3 (counts as 1st dc in row), turn
{Repeat steps 2 – 4 for pattern.}
