Crochet Cross Stitch

tStitch-cation Summer Challenge

The next stitch I have learned during the Crochet Crowds Stitch-cation Summer Challenge is the Cross Stitch.   It is so easy to do.

Basically you skip a stitch, do a treble into the next two stitches and then do a treble into the stitch you skipped.  That creates the single cross stitch.  You repeat this across the square.    The first row is the cross stitch and the second row is a basic crochet stitch.

Note that this is not two stitches creating a cross but one stitch crossing over in front of the two stitches you just did.  Simple.

I first did this in a single colour, but for my second square I alternated my colours every two rows.  Alternating the colours made it easier to see where you were in the pattern, but between me and you sewing all those ends in is not something I enjoy.  There is a reason I never took up sewing.
