Up and Down Crochet Stitch

Up and down stitch, love this textured stitch, it's so easy and quick to do and can be used in sooo many projects.

You will need 2 different colors of yarn.

Stitches Used
dc.       Double crochet
sl st.    Slip Stitch

Tip.  There are a lot of strands of yarn in this design so make sure you weave them in as you go along.

I used a 4.00mm hook for the sample shown. With color 1 make a length of ch's in multiples of 2, work 1dc in 4th ch from hook, 1dc in each ch to end. Fasten off. Turn.

Row 2 - sl st color 2 to first dc, * 1dc in next dc, sl st in next dc, * rpt from * to * to end. Fasten off. Turn.

Row 3 - Join in color 1, ch3, 1dc in each stitch to end. Fasten off.

Rpt Rows 2 and 3 to required rows.
