I was working on a pattern and came across a cross double crochet stitch... I tried looking on youtube and couldn't find a good video of how to make this stitch. So I was wondering if someone on here could give me good directions on how to make this stitch. :think

A crossed dc takes 2 stitches to make.

- skip the 1st st and dc in the 2nd.
- then put a dc in the st that you just skipped.

How many chains would you use for a cross stitch pattern? Or, I guess it's just a matter of even or odd number. I suppose I could just do a set of 5 or so so I wouldn't have to undo 100+ if I was wrong.

What's the best way to figure out how many chains you have to do for a pattern to work out evenly? In this case, it takes 2 stitches for the pattern and I'm using DC so I skip 2 stitches for my initial turning chain so...EVEN number of chains? Or is it odd because I'm starting in the 3rd chain? I'm so confused.

Help?

Personally i would just make a swatch of it....chain a good length and make as many cross sts as you want. Be sure that you have your first row set up so the second row will work out, etc.

Or draw it out on paper.
