Please, could you explain to me then rd? I understand the crosstitch but, after you say: 1 dc in lsat stitch. But befor this stitch I’ve got 3 more remaining sititches till I reach out the 6 final stitches. What I’m doing or understanding wrong? Thank you in advance .
The increase on this looks weird. My pattern isn’t stacking like your final result that you have pictured. How do you get each of the stitches to line up with each other?
I’m repeating row 8 appropriately where you do 2 sc, 1 sc × 4. That way you get an increase of 4 stitches each time.
But my stitches still don’t stack correctly. How do I fix this?
It says increasing 4 stitches for each repeat.
What’s the name of this stitch?
Question: for each repeat is there an increase of 4 stitches. Row 8 it says 2 sc 1 sc then 3 more times.
I think, for each repeat of row 8 that you do, the “three more times” increases by one. so, for the first repeat of row 8, you would “2sc, 1sc”, 4 more times, the second repeat, 5 more times,
Does anyone knows what is the name of this stitch?

I really want to make this shawl but I’m having trouble. I don’t understand how to “work a dc back across the stitches just made and into the skipped st.” Is it possible to explain how to do this? I’ve tried to find instructions but haven’t had any luck. Thank you.
You start the dc (pull up a loop) but instead of going into the next avalable stitch to the left you turn your hand a bit and put your hook into the stitch you skipped 2 stitch back and complete a double crochet. It’s essentially making an X or like a crossstitch. Good Luck!
Kaye Walker says
Thank you so much!
I’m also having trouble figuring out this stitch and looked up the crossover stitch, but here not every previous stitch was skipped and there are still stitches left on the end of the row.
If my explanation doesn’t help and you need to look at videos. Google: double crochet crossstitch. 😊

Thank you, I will check that out.
Gorgeous pattern! just yesterday I bought denim yarn that not only roke my ‘no more yarn enters this house until i use what’s here already’ promise to myself, but I also had no idea of a project for it! Until now…
