Criss Cross Crochet Stitch

The Criss-Cross stitch is a beautiful detailed open and textured crochet stitch pattern. Scroll down for ideas on how to use this stitch, along with the step-by-step crochet stitch pattern.

The criss-cross stitch is a beautifully textured and lightly open stitch.

Although both sides of this stitch are gorgeous, I have a personal preference for the back side.

The criss-cross stitch is perfect for any type of project where light texture and small holes are desired: garments, shawls, etc.


The patterns are written for a 15cm by 15cm / 6” by 6” square.


  • st = stitch
  • ch = chain
  • sc = single crochet
  • dc = double crochet
  • tr = treble crochet
  • yo = yarn over
  • dc2tog = double crochet 2 stitches together
  • skip = miss

Stitch Multiple

The pattern needs a multiple of 3 number of stitches; your starting chain will be a multiple of 3 + 1 for an extra turning chain.


The gauge for this pattern is 12 st by 15.5 rows in stitch pattern for a 10 cm by 10 cm square (4” by 4”).

The Actual Crochet Stitch Pattern

With your 5mm / US H-8 hook ch 25.

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, turn. <24 st>

Row 2: Ch 2, [skip 2, dc, dc in previous st*, dc in st before that*] across, turn.

*these stitches are worked from the front, over and around the previous dc(s) made.

Row 3: Ch 1, [sc 2, sc in space between dc blocks] across, turn.

Repeat Row 2 and 3 until you reach 15cm / 6″
