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.

Chunky Triangle Scarf Crochet Pattern

| Crochet

This chunky triangle scarf crochet pattern is easy to make. It's quick and easy to make and the colors can be customized to anything that you want.Chunky Triangle Scarf Crochet Pattern

I have a confession.  We’re on that level, right?

I love scarfs. In fact, I’m a self-professed scarf fanatic. I have tons of them, all in different fabrics, colors, and patterns.

But you know what?  I didn’t have one like this, and I feel like one can never have too many scarves.

They’re the perfect accessory, and whenever I wear one, I know it means the ushering in of the fall season.

This scarf is so cozy, warm, and easy to make. The fringe gives it a little bit of a western vibe, which I love, and the colors can be customized to anything that you want.

The thick yarn size ensures that this comes together quickly, so no excuses!  It’s craft season, and this is a great choice to satisfy your crafty vibes.

CHUNKY TRIANGLE SCARF PATTERN

NOTE: Pattern in U.S. crochet terminology

SKILL LEVEL: EASY

MATERIALS:

  • Hook: U.S. P/11.5mm
  • Two sizes of yarn –  1 skein (110 yds) of size 5 bulky yarn and 1 skein (110 yds) of size 4 Worsted Weight (Loops & Threads Charisma in Charcoal, and Red Heart Soft in Charcoal used in photos)
  • 1” or larger button
  • Darning Needle & Scissors

ABBREVIATIONS:

  • st = stitch
  • ch = chain
  • sl = slip stitch
  • hdc = half double crochet
  • ch-sp = chain space

FINISHED SIZE:  19’’ tall x 26’’ wide (across the top)

GAUGE:  3 cl stitches = 2’’  3 rows = 2’’

PATTERN:

Ch  5,  leaving a minimum 6” tail. Place a stitch marker in the 2nd chain.

ROW 1: Hdc in the 1st chain (5th from the hook).

ROW 2: Ch 3, turn, (hdc, ch 1) into the ch-sp below, hdc in the same chain as you put the stitch marker. Remove stitch marker.

ROW 3: Ch 3, turn, (hdc, ch 1) into the ch-sp below, continue across row, ending with a hdc in the 2nd ch from the ch 3 turning chain from the previous row.

ROW 4 – 24: Repeat row 3.

ROW 25: Ch 3, skip the 1st ch-sp and (hdc, ch 1) into the next ch-spaces across the row, ending with an hdc in the 2nd ch from the ch 3 turning chain from the previous row. Break yarn, weave in ends.

Add Fringe

Cut yarn (holding both strands of yarn weights together) in 13” strands. Fold the strands of yarn for one fringe in half, forming a loop at one end. Match the cut ends of the yarn on the other end. Take your hook and draw the loop through the stitch that you’re attaching the fringe to. Draw the loose ends of the yarn through the loop. This step creates the knot. Holding the top of the fringe in one hand, pull gently on the fringe ends with your other hand, tightening the knot until it’s secure. To finish, trim the ends of the fringe so that they’re even.

Add Button

Sew the button to the top corner tip,  opposite the side with the large gap between your hdc’s (your buttonhole).

Big Button Puffy Cowl Crochet Pattern

Big Button Puffy Cowl Crochet Pattern

Winter is coming. That means it’s time to hunker down with hot cocoa, movies, and plenty of blankets.  And I, for one, couldn’t be more excited!

Cold weather months help us slow down naturally, not only because of the holidays but also because it’s too chilly to even want to do much.  

Still, life goes on and as much as we might like to huddle beneath our duvets and hibernate, sometimes we do have to venture out.

And it’s on those days that you’ll want to break out this big button puffy cowl.

Keep it cozy with this super warm cowl.  Wear it alone or pair it with your favorite winter coat for those extra chilly mornings.  It’s easy to make and the thick yarn makes this crochet up very quickly.  

Plus, it buttons so you don’t have to worry about it slipping off.  

With one of these in your arsenal, chilly mornings will be no match for you.
