Crochet Cross Over Stitch Tutorial

This cross over stitch might look complicated, but don’t worry, it’s way easier than it looks. It’s a stitch I haven’t featured in any of my past crochet projects, but I wanted to add it to the crochet stitch tutorials library first to get everyone familiar.

It’s a great stitch for blankets, scarves, table runners etc., but it’s also great for tops, cardigans, beach covers. Very versatile.

For these stitch tutorials, you can use any yarn and hook you like to practice with. Worst case scenario is you end up with a blanket rather than a scarf or vice versa 🤣

If you’re just curious what I used here, I used Lion Brand comfy cotton blend and a 5mm hook.

If you’re already a pro with the cross over stitch, be sure to check out some of my other crochet stitch tutorials, there might be something new to learn for you there. Check these out below.
