Wide Checkers Stitch
Have you ever done the Wide Checkers Stitch? Well, I said NO, too, when someone recently asked me. Well, I learned the stitch and it is so fun. It works up quickly and you do not have to think to much when doing this stitch. It makes a weave like shape in the end and would work perfectly for scarfs, or table toppers or anything else you come up with.
It is worked in 5 st each for sc and dc, meaning you start with 5 single crochet, then you do 5 double crochet, then you do 5 single crochet again, and so forth until the end of the row, then you turn and do single crochet where double crochet where made in the previous row and you do double crochet where single crochet where made.
I made a video on how to do it below and also wrote the general instructions on how to make this stitch below as well. Let me know what you think about it and what kind of creations you came up with using this stitch 🙂
