About the Stitch
This crochet stitch offers a criss cross texture that is offset by one after every row. It takes a bit of getting used to working behind the double crochets to get the criss cross effect, but it gets easier after a few times!
This stitch is great for garments, blankets, or anything you want to have a pretty texture.
