I came up with this stitch while tinkering with my hook and starting to make this neck cozy. Since it has some texture to it, I named it Crunchy stitch. It is very easy to make.
Red Heart Hunter green
G crochet hook
3 green buttons about the size of a dime
green sewing thread
with G Ch 16. Row 1- 1 sc in 2nd ch of hk and in every ch across. Ch 3, turn (counts as 1 dc throughout). Row 2- 1 dc in each sc across. Row 3- 1 sc and 1 dc in first dc, skip next dc, 1 sc and 1 dc in next dc, *skip next dc, 1 sc and 1 dc in next dc, rep from * across until you reach the last stitch. Work 1 dc and 1 sc (inverted) in that last stitch. Ch 1, turn. Row 4- 1 sc in each sc across. Continue alternating rows 2 to 4 for pattern. Continue in this manner until your neck cozy measures 23-1/2 inches long,(or 59 rows) ending with a dc row. When you reach the end of your last row, ch 1, and insert the hook in the same dc you just made. Row 60- Make 1 row of sc across the edg widthwise.
Edging: Row 61- Ch 3, turn, 1 dc in each of next 2 sc, ch 3 skip 3 sc, *1 dc in each of next 3 dc, ch 3, skip 3 dc, rep from * across. Row 62- Ch 3, turn. Skip last 2 dc of prev row and make 4 dc in ch-3 space , * ch 3, skip next dc, make 1 sc in next dc, skip next dc, ch 3, make 4 dc in next ch-3 space, rpe from * across. Finish with 1 sc inthe middle of last 3-dc group from prev row. Fasten off. Hide tail. Place one end of the neck cozy over the other, crossing it and measure where you want your buttons to be placed. Sew the buttons on the side that would be underneath when you cross the cozy to close it up, place them so that the dc row that crosses over the buttons will serve as buttonholes.
