The alpine stitch is made with an odd chain count, making the rows in even numbers.
In order to see the way the alpine stitch is made, be sure to check out both the video and photo tutorial to understand it the best.
Starting from the 2nd ch from the hook place 1 sc each ch, turn
R2: 1 ATC (or ch 3 and count it as a stitch), 1 dc in each st, turn
R3: 1 sc in each st, turn
Also, I crochet ATC (alternative turning chain) stitches for dc rows.
1 ATC, 1 FPdc, *1 dc, 1 FPdc, repeat from *, last 2 stitches: 1 dc in each, turn
FPdc stitches are Front Post Double Crochet Stitches. The video above shows you how to crochet them.
1 sc in each st, turn
1 ATC, *1 dc, 1 FPdc, repeat from *, last stitch: 1 dc, turn
1 sc in each st, turn
