Crossed Double Crochet Version 2 ~ A Video Tutorial

My last video tutorial on the Crossed Double Crochet stitch, found HERE, was a very open and almost lacy version of the stitch.

Today I'm going to show you another way to work the same stitch, crossed double crochet, only this time there will be no spaces between the stitches so the resulting fabric is more dense and solid. Here's what it looks like...

Crossed Double Crochet with no spaceOn this sample, I also worked a row of single crochet between each row of crossed double crochet so that the right side of the crossed double crochet stitches would all be on the same side of the work.

Here's the video showing how to work this stitch...

There are lots of different ways you can incorporate this stitch into your crochet design, so if you're looking for an interesting change in your work, add a row of crossed double crochet, either with spaces or without, and see how you like it.

If you are looking for an even more solid look to this stitch, try using a smaller hook or larger yarn for a thick and chunky effect. But if you're after a lacier look, try a bigger hook or smaller yarn and add a few spaces between each set of crossed double crochet. Play around with it and see what fun combinations you can come up with for your next scarf, shawl or blanket.

Happy Stitching!
