Crossed Trebles (US crossed double crochet)

Crossed trebles (also known as crossed double crochet if you are in the US) are an easy and pretty variation of the basic treble stitch and there are a couple of simple ways in which you can incorporate them into a crochet fabric or stitch pattern.

To make a crossed stitch, simply miss one stitch and go back to work the one you missed so that the two stitches cross over

Crossed trebles worked on every row. There is no right or wrong side to the resulting fabric
Rows of crossed trebles alternating with rows of double crochet (US single crochet) Each side will look slightly different so be careful if you use this stitch pattern ans are sewing them together
