The Crossed Double Crochet Stitch is one of my favorites for a few reasons.

  • It’s easy – even a beginner can learn this stitch!
  • It’s versatile – you can easily add it to an project worked flat or in the round
  • It adds beautiful texture and complexity, but it’s really quite simple.

Now let’s learn how to make this pretty stitch. 

Crossed Double Crochet instructions:

Make sure your project has an even number of stitches across. This will not work with odd numbers since you will be working in sets of 2. 

  1. Skip the first stitch of the row.
  2. Make your first dc of that row in the following stitch
  3. Go BACK and make your second dc in the skipped stitch

Photo tutorials:

Skip first stitch.

Make a dc in the next st.

Go back and make a dc in the skipped st.

For the next set, skip the next st and make a dc in the next stitch over.

Two sets of crossed dc made. You can see how each set forms an X.

It’s best to have a row or two of basic stitches in between rows of crossed dc.
