I have been doing crochet a long time, but have been serious to do it on Etsy since 2014. Even though I know how to crochet, I love to learn new stitches. I have learned so much from Craftsy online classes. This crunch stitch I learned from Beth Graham. She is fantastic for teaching new stitches, for textured crochet. The name of the class I took from her is called Fun & Fantastic Textured Crochet Stitches.

- 100% cotton worsted weight yarn. I used Bernat Handicrafter Big Ball Cotton Yarn
- Crochet Hook – 5.5mm (H/8).
CH – chain
SLST – slip stitch
HDC – half double crochet
- Crunch stitch uses a combination of HDC and SLST. If you don’t do the SLST properly, it will be too tight. If you crochet tight, you may want to upsize your hook to J[6mm]
- This pattern is written in American crochet terms.
Chain in multiples of 2 (+1 for foundation chain)
ROW 1: 1 SLST in third CH from hook (2 skipped CHs count as first HDC), *1 HDC in next CH, 1 SLST in next CH * – repeat across. Turn your work.
ROW 2: CH 2 (counts as first hdc), 1 SLST in next HDC, *1 hdc in next SLST, 1 SLST in next HDC* – repeat across. Turn your work.
Repeat Row 2 until you have reached your desired length.
Sorry for the video quality, I am new at it. I promise I will make it better.
