The ridge in the fabric will run over top of your fabric and run lengthwise. It would add a fun pop of texture to your crochet garments and accessories.

About the Corded Ridge Stitch:
The corded ridge stitch is made up of double crochet stitches as well as reverse single crochet stitches. You may also know the reverse single crochet stitch as the crab stitch.
Because of the reverse single crochet stitches, although your piece will be worked in rows, there will be no turning at the ends. You will simply change the direct you are working.
Sounds neat? Check out the video tutorial of the stitch in action below!
For this tutorial I will be using the Caron x Pantone yarn by Yarnspirations along with a 5.5 mm crochet hook. The hook shown here and in the video below is an Odyssey hook by Furls Crochet. However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose.
Corded Ridge Stitch:
This stitch is worked in rows in this tutorial. At the end of each row you will need to chain 3 or chain 1. As mentioned above, you will not turn your work at the end of each row.
Don’t forget to check out the free video tutorial linked below!
To begin, make a slip knot and then chain your desired number of chains. For this stitch pattern you will need any multiple of stitches plus 2 for your foundation chain.
For my swatch I will be making a foundation chain of 20 chain stitches.
Skip the first 3 chains (this counts as a double crochet stitch). Double crochet into the next stitch and each stitch across. Do not turn.
Chain 1. Without turning your work, work one single crochet stitch into the front loop only of the last double crochet stitch made. Single crochet into the front loop only of next previous double crochet stitch made and into each all the way back across. End with a slip stitch into the top of the chain 3. Do not turn.
Chain 3, skip the first stitch and double crochet into the back loop only of the next double crochet stitch and into each all the way across. Do not turn.
And that’s it!
For the rest of the pattern, repeat rows two and three. Fasten off and weave in your ends.
