Hey everyone! Today I'm showing you how to crochet the Leaping Stripes pattern. It's a fun pattern to mix things up a bit if you're getting tired of just plain stripes patterns! You can use this pattern to create scarves, potholders, blankets/afghans, or anything that you want.
Crochet Hook: 5mm
Row 1: ch 18 or any length that you want (has to be a multiple of 4 + 2- ex: 16 +2= 18)
Row 2: 1 dc in 4th chain from hook, 1 dc in next stitch, *ch 2, 1 dc in 3rd chain from hook, 1 dc in next stitch* repeat directions between ** one more time. Ch 2, 1 dc in each of the last 3 stitches
Row 3: ch1, sc in 1st stitch, *ch 2, 1 dc in corresponding original chain, 1 dc in next corresponding chain* repeat directions between ** 2 more times. Ch 2, 1 sc in last stitch of the row
Row 4-end: repeat Row 3- to recap: single crochet is always the first and last stitch, if there is a chain 2 gap work 1 dc in each of the double crochets below the gap, and if there is no chain 2 gap, then chain two and continue along the row.
