The Raised Ridge Stitch is a wonderful crochet stitch pattern with a thick texture and an easy one row repeat!
The combination of working this stitch in multiple colours really sets the stitch apart all the more! As mentioned above the Raised Ridge Stitch is a one row repeat and after the first row your will be switching colours after every two rows if you work it in two colours as I will below. The stitch pattern can be used in a variety of projects including those projects where the front and back are viewable.

Materials for this Tutorial:

The Raised Ridge Crochet Stitch:
Ch – Chain
Dc – Double Crochet
Fpdc – Front Post Double Crochet
Rpt – Repeat
Sk – Skip
Sl St – Slip Stitch
Yo – Yarn Over
This stitch is worked in rows in this tutorial. You may work the stitch in one colour or many. I will be working the design in two different colours labeled as A and B.
To begin, make a slip knot and then chain your desired number of chains. For this stitch pattern you may use any number of stitches for your foundation chain.
For example, with colour A, ch 23.
Dc in the 4th ch (the starting ch-3 counts as a dc) from your hook and in each st across switching to colour B in the final st. Ch 1, turn.
With colour B, hdc in the 1st st, fpdc in each st across until one st remains, hdc in the final st (this is your ch-3). Ch 1, turn.
Hdc in the 1st st, fpdc in each st across until one st remains, hdc in the final st switching to colour A. Ch 1, turn.
With colour A, hdc in the 1st st, fpdc in each st across until one st remains, hdc in the final st (this is your ch-3). Ch 1, turn.
Hdc in the 1st st, fpdc in each st across until one st remains, hdc in the final st switching to colour B. Ch 1, turn.
And that’s it!
For this patter your will see that you are always repeating the row two stitches, the only thing that changes is the colour. After row one you will work two rows in each colour alternating back and forth for as long as you would like. Fasten off, weave in your ends.
