My latest stitch obsession is houndstooth. I was never much a fan of houndstooth patterns in woven fabrics, but it looks amazingly classy in crochet. And this is the rare stitch pattern that would look equally fashionable for both men and women's garments.
I'm sure you can guess now that I have a pattern for a houndstooth garment in the works, but in the meantime, if you'd like to get a taste for this lovely stitch, here are the instructions for crochet houndstooth. You'll never believe how easy it is.
Row 1. Sc in second ch from hook, dc in next ch, *sc in next ch, dc in next ch; rep from * across.
Change to Color B.
Row 2. Ch 1; turn. Sc in first dc, dc in next sc, *sc in next dc, dc in next sc; rep from * across.
Change to Color A.
Rep Row 2, changing colors each row.
