I have done a video tutorial about this stitch last year. In that month I decided to explore different stitches and make a month of stitch tutorials, one of these was the crunch stitch.
The beauty of this stitch or a similar one is that you have the texture in the project, in my case a blanket and the ease of it, this stitch is so easy to achieve that it is unbelievable and it is very pretty as well.
So this blanket is a small baby blanket but you can make it bigger if you wish, you just need to make more chains in the beginning, I have used a random acrylic yarn and the highest recommended hook number on the label.
Blanket measures 50 cm wide and 78 cm long
Sl st: slip stitch
Hdc: half double crochet
Row 1: on the 2nd ch from the hook, make a sl st, hdc in the next st, in the next st , sl st, repeat till end of the row.
