crosses & zeros
The name of this stitch is suggestive, after the rows that we will make. We will have “ crosses” from a cross stitch row, and “zeros” from a filet stitch row. We will add a single crochet row to this 2, just to define the “crosses & zeros”.

Love to find simple and beautiful stitches and collecting them here. I wish that this crochet library will grow and you can always find here some interesting stitches.

Abbreviations used in this pattern:

• Ch – chain
• Sc – single crochet
• Dc – double crochet
• St(s) – stitch(es)

For this stitch you will have to begin with a multiple of 2 + 1, adding the turning chain. In this case the turning chain will be 1 stitch because the first row will be in single crochet.

Round 1

1 sc in each st across.

Round 2

Ch 4, skip 1 st, 1 dc in next, *ch 1, skip 1 st, 1 dc in next st. Repeat from * to the end of the row.

Round 3

Ch 3, skip first ch 1 space, 1 dc in the next ch 1 space, turn to the previous ch 1 space that you skipped and make 1 dc, *1 dc in the next ch1 space, 1 dc in the previous ch 1 space. Repeat from * to the end of the row, ending with 1 dc in the 3rd st of the turning chain.

From now on just repeat these 3 rows as long as you want.
