This free crochet tutorial will show you how to crochet the crossed treble stitch, step by step, so you can complete this new crochet stitch with confidence!

It uses the exact same basic crochet stitch as the treble crochet (double crochet) but they are worked in pairs. One of the stitches in the pair is worked in the stitch behind the other. 

You'll find this stitch pattern featured in so many different crochet projects including blankets, shawls, and cardigans. 

For this tutorial I used the following materials: 
6mm crochet hook (I used my Furls Crochet Hook)
PaintBox Yarns Simply Chunky in shade Pistachio 

You can use any yarn with the hook size recommended on the yarns band.
