What's to love about the crossed double crochet stitch?
I love this stitch for multiple reasons…
- It’s so damn easy. If you can double crochet you can do this stitch.
- It’s worked in a multiple of two, so it’s easy to integrate into lots of different patterns, so long as the row count is divisible by two.
- It can easily be amended into a crossed triple stitch (which is what I used in the Hell. Tapestry) or quadruple or quin?tuple?…whatever you want 🙂
- It adds a nice bit of texture.
This is really my personal go-to stitch variation for designing, when I can’t think of or manage to fit something else, but I want a bit of texture or variation in the fabric.
And, bonus, I think learning to do the crossed double crochet is a nice lead in to learning how to crochet cables 🙂
