Crosshatch Stitch 1

Crosshatch Stitch 1

From the "Harmony Guide To crochet Stitches".
To see it in the book it is on page 26.

I am not affiliated in any way with this book. I just own a copy and really like it. Plus I needed to test some yarn from Caron and I decided to combine my time to design something for the site, work on this featured stitch and test the yarn all at the same time.

This pattern stitch would make a great scarf or even an afghan. You could also use this for dishcloths and in sweaters.
