If you have no experience with the Crossed Double Crochet, then you are going to enjoy mastering it. It has more of a three-dimensional effect than just using the basic double crochet stitch.

To master this stitch you will need to know the chain stitch (The Chain Stitch) and the double crochet. (The Double Crochet) If you are ready for your new adventure, grab a ball of yarn and a crochet hook and lets begin. The skill level for this stitch is Easy, making this a great stitch for a new crocheter.


You will want to start with a chain stitch in multiples of twos. I am going to chain 10 for the tutorial.

Step 6: We are ending with a Double Crochet in the last stitch. (pictured above)

This will give you four crossed double crochet with a double crochet in your first and last stitch.

You have just completed the crossed double crochet! Experiment and master the stitch and then I would love to hear what you think. This is a stitch I have used in many patterns over the years.

Until next week, keep those hooks flying.


About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.
