Side to Side Stitch

This Side to Side Stitch appears in a free pattern called the Textured Crochet Blocks Afghan. It is 1 of 6 motifs that are required for that pattern.

This stitch strongly resembles the look of a corner to corner stitch but without being a corner to corner. It is worked up in straight rows. Depending on the row you are on, it will lean over. Reminds me of a woven look.

To do this stitch in multiples to make it bigger. The stitch multiple is 3 sts.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.

    Thank you so much Mikey! I saw a sample at Michael’s today and had no idea what the stitch was called and didn’t really want to spend the time figuring out how to do it myself. I’m making lapghans and thought this would make a lovely one – not too lacy and all one color. I was about to give up when I stumbled onto your wonderful website. Thanks again – I really appreciate it the help.
