Twist and Cross Stitch Pattern - Learn to Crochet

Updated: Jan 22



This is a very simple crochet pattern that works over a 2 row repeat. The Dc segments are framed on the sides with a really fun, little twisty column. Join me as I show you step by step how to create this beautiful stitch pattern.


The crochet hook used is my absolute favorite hook. It’s the Furls Odyssey in Turquoise; however, they now have a bunch of colors that I love! The yarn is also lovely! It’s a super soft, inexpensive and absolutely lovely yarn that I just love, as well (Oh, and it rarely splits!). So much so that I became an affiliate with the Furls company and LoveCrafts. What that means for you is that when you purchase using my link, you allow the company to pay me a small commission without costing you a penny more. This helps me to continue making free tutorials and patterns. Here is the link if you’d like to check them out for yourself:
