This fun Zigzag Lozenge Stitch uses a variety of stitches in its pattern.
Although it uses a variety of stitches though, once you have the repeat down, it’s really quite easy!
The stitches featured in the pattern include rows of V stitches alternating between rows of cluster stitches. The particular cluster stitch in this design is the double crochet three together (dc3tog).
The resulting fabric is one that has a lot of variety and is interesting to look at. You may wish to try this design in a baby’s blanket or a beautiful shawl!

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 Zigzag Lozenge Stitch:
This stitch is worked in rows in this tutorial.
To begin, make a slip knot and then chain your desired number of chains. For this stitch pattern you will need to chain a multiple of two stitches plus three for your foundation chain.
Half double crochet into the third chain from your hook (starting chain two counts as a half double crochet stitch), * skip the next chain, [half double crochet, chain one, half double crochet] into the next stitch.
Repeat from * across to the final two chain stitches, skip the next chain and work two half double crochet into the final stitch.
Chain three and turn.
Double Crochet into the first stitch (the chain three and double crochet together count as a double crochet two together), * chain one, work a double crochet three stitches together into the next chain one space.
To work the double crochet three together, [yarn over, insert your hook into the stitch indicated, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through two loops] three times.
Repeat from * across to the final space, chain one, double crochet two together into the final stitch.
Chain two (counts as a half double crochet stitch) and turn your work.
Skip the first stitch (at the base of your chain two), * work [half double crochet, chain one, half double crochet] into the next chain one space.
Repeat from * across ending with one final half double crochet into the final stitch.
Chain three (counts as a double crochet stitch) and turn.
Skip the first stitch, * double crochet three together into the next space, chain one.
Repeat from * across to the last space, double crochet three together into the final space, double crochet into the top of the turning chain.
Chain two (counts as a half double crochet) and turn.
Half double crochet into the first stitch, * [half double crochet, chain one, half double crochet] into the next chain one space.
