The Tilted Rows stitch is worked almost exclusively in double crochet and chain stitches.
It is an easy crochet pattern to work and the resulting fabric is almost lacy. The fabric features vertical rows of double crochet stitches alternating in straight and titled stitches. This is where the “tilted rows” name comes from.

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 Tilted Rows Stitch
This stitch is worked in rows in this tutorial. At the end of each row you will need to chain three and turn your work. The chain three counts as a double 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 eight stitches, plus five stitches for your foundation chain.
For my swatch I will be making a foundation chain of 29 chain stitches.
Double crochet into the fourth chain from your hook and in the next chain stitch.
*Skip the next two chain stitches and double crochet in the next chain.
Chain three and work three double crochet stitches around the post of the double crochet stitch previously worked.
Skip the next two chains and double crochet in each of the next three chain stitches.
Repeat from * across. Chain three (which counts as a double crochet stitch and turn your work.
Double crochet in each of the next two stitches, * chain two and single crochet in the next chain three space.
Chain two and double crochet in each of the next three double crochet stitches.
Repeat from * across ending with your final double crochet stitch being worked into the top of the starting chain three. Chain three and turn your work.
Double crochet in each of the next two stitches, skipping the chain two space, * double crochet in the next single crochet stitch.
Chain three and work three double crochet stitches around the post of the last double crochet stitch worked.

And that’s it!
For the rest of the pattern simply repeat rows two and three. Fasten off and weave in your ends.
