Today lets look at a fun textured stitch! The Criss Cross Stitch! This stitch will stagger the criss cross pattern and uses the double crochet stitch. I use this stitch pattern in The Hide ‘N Seek Tunic I designed for Sugar Bush Yarns
In todays stitch you will need to know the basics including the single and double crochet stitch. Watch these lessons below.
For my learn to crochet series I will be using Super Bulky weight #6 yarn and a 9mm crochet hook. You can use any hook and yarn weight but I feel learning with a larger hook and weight yarn is easier. Today’s Lesson uses the color Salmon!
Yarn used in video series – Sugar Bush Yarns Chill
Lesson #1 will teach the ultimate basic step, HOW TO HOLD THE YARN AND CHAIN
HOW TO SINGLE CROCHET (SC) AND HOW TO FOUNDATION SINGLE CROCHET (FSC)
Lesson #4 HOW TO CROCHET THE DOUBLE CROCHET (DC) AND FOUNDATION DOUBLE CROCHET (FDC) STITCH
