How to Crochet Crosshatch Stitch

June 5, 2019

Crosshatch stitch is a beautiful textured crochet stitch, perfect for making blankets and is reversible so it looks good on both sides! It is similar to the block stitch you make in Corner to Corner (C2C) stitch, except you work into the chains of the ch-3, instead of the space. It makes the stitch pattern more solid and with less holes. Sometimes that is exactly what you need for a project.

    OKay, I’m stuck. I have it all done, but cannot figure out where the finishing of the single stitches go. At the bottom only? where are the instructions for seaming the hat and closing it at the top? Thanks!
