The Crossed Half Double Crochet Stitch is really easy – you only need to know the half double crochet stitch. A simple variation in stitch placement gives this stitch a fabulous knit look!
Basically you will skip a stitch, place a half double crochet stitch and then come back and place another half double crochet stitch in the stitch you skipped. This creates the crossed stitch where one half double crochet stitch crosses over in front of the previous half double crochet stitch. Easy peasy!
