Cross-Over Stitch Infinity Scarf Crochet Pattern

This Cross-Over Stitch Infinity Scarf is the perfect thing to keep you warm this winter. It also makes a perfect gift for a special someone this Christmas.Cross-Over Block Stitch Infinity Scarf Crochet Pattern

Winter has come early to Victoria, British Columbia where I live. Most years we’re lucky to not see any snow but this year, it arrived on the second day of November. Now, to be honest, it didn’t stick around for long but it definitely was a shock to the system.

As soon as I felt that cold Arctic air, I knew it was time to start working a new crochet scarf. My original idea was to use a block stitch but as soon as I started working on the scarf, I knew it was a little bit too boring of a stitch for what I was after. After fooling around with a few ideas I came up with this much more interesting cross-over block stitch pattern.

The cross-over block stitch has a lovely texture and look to it and could be used for blankets, washcloths, bags, hats and more. I’m really pleased how this infinity scarf pattern turned out and I’ve decided it’s going to make the perfect gift for a special someone this Christmas.

High Neck Capelet Crochet Pattern

| Crochet

This high neck capelet crochet pattern will have you feeling posh with a contemporary spin on a very classic garment and add an extra layer of warmth.High Neck Capelet Crochet Pattern

If you’re thinking “capelet” sounds like some lost relic of the Victorian age, you’re not far off.

Before Wonder Woman was ever painted on the page, capes were a staple in historical fashion.

The capelet is a variation, that traditionally hit just at the waist, making it much shorter than an average cape. It became popularized in the Victorian era.

A capelet today can refer to anything originating from a cape silhouette but that is shorter in length.

This high neck capelet will have you feeling posh with a contemporary spin on a very classic garment.  

This is such a cute piece that can go over any sweater to add an extra layer of warmth.

You’ll be working in the round, so this is a great, beginner friendly project that will help you work out some new crochet techniques.

The Cross-Over Block Stitch Crochet Tutorial

| Crochet

The cross-over block stitch is a really easy stitch to crochet - if you can chain, single and double crochet then you can crochet this awesome stitch.Crochet Stitch of the Month – The Cross-Over Block Stitch

Welcome to my monthly stitch of the month post. This month I’m featuring a stitch I call the “Cross-Over” Block Stitch.

Earlier this month I was looking for a stitch for an infinity scarf I was hoping to make (look for that pattern coming shortly). I came across a stitch called the Block stitch – I was looking for something super easy and this definitely fit the bill. But I wasn’t wowed by the look and I felt it could use a little somethin’ somethin’ to spruce it up. I decided that crossing-over the block might give it some extra flair and texture so I gave it a try. Yep, that’s all it needed. I was in LOVE!

Now, I’m not implying that I invented this stitch. I’m sure it’s already out there and everybody uses it but somehow I’ve missed it. So, if you know if this stitch exists and what it’s called please let me know.

The cross-over block stitch is a really easy stitch to crochet so fear not. If you can chain, single crochet and double crochet then you’ve already got all the skills you need to make this awesome stitch. It’s the perfect stitch to use when you want something easy and mindless to do while you’re watching Netflix or your kid’s soccer game.

Cross-Over Block Stitch

Start by chaining multiples of 3 + 2 to the desired length.

Row 1: Insert your hook into the 5th chain from the hook, dc in each chain until the end of the row. Turn.

Row 2: Ch3, then in between the 3rd and 4th dc (the dc under the ch DOES NOT count as the 1st dc), do 1sc, ch2, *skip 3 dc and do 1sc, ch2 between the dc from the previous row * rep until the end of the row, ending with a sc in the last dc. Turn.

Row 3: Ch3, 2dc into the ch space below, plus 1dc crossed-over to the sc at the bottom of the turning ch. *2dc into the next ch space, plus 1dc crossed back over (to the right) into the sc from the previous row*. Rep until the end of the row ending with an additional dc in the last ch space (no cross-over).

Continue Rows 2-3 until you have reached the desired length for your project.
