The Crossed Treble Stitch is a lacy crochet stitch pattern. As it is made using treble crochet stitches, it works up fairly quickly.
The open work of this stitch creates a very lacy fabric. In the tutorial below I work it using a bulky weight yarn, but this stitch would also look very pretty in a lace weight yarn.
This stitch would look wonderful on its own, or interspaced between a more solid stitch. Because of this I believe it would lend itself well to a variety of crochet patterns.

For this tutorial today I will be using a small amount of Cotton Aran by Paintbox Yarns. It is an aran weight yarn. The hook shown here and in the video below is a wooden streamline hook by Furls Crochet. However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose.

The Crossed Treble Crochet Stitch
This stitch is worked in rows in this tutorial. At the end of each row you will need to chain four and turn your work. The chain four counts as a treble crochet stitch.
To begin, make a slip knot and then chain your desired number of chains. For this stitch pattern you will need a multiple of four stitches, plus one stitch for your foundation chain.
For my swatch I will be making a foundation chain of 21 chain stitches.
To make your first crossed treble stitch: Yarn over twice and insert your hook into the fifth chain from your hook, yarn over and draw up a loop.
*Yarn over and pull it through two loops. Yarn over, skip the next two chains, insert your hook into the next stitch, yarn over and draw up a loop.
Yarn over and draw through two loops on your hook four times.
Chain two. Yarn over and insert your hook under the two loops found at the centre of the part of the stitch just made.
Yarn over and pull through two loops on your hook twice.
To make the next stitch and each stitch after, yarn over twice and insert your hook into the next stitch on the foundation chain. Repeat from * all the way across.
Chain four and turn your work.
Row two is worked the same as row one except for that this row you are no longer working into the chain stitches, but working into your crossed treble stitches in the row below.
Continue to repeat this for as long as you desire. Fasten off and weave in your ends.
