Raised Crochet Stitch

The raised crochet stitch is now featured in many crochet projects, in this swatch I have done a simple combination of double crochet and treble crochet stitches.

The stitches are for both beginners and intermediate crocheters. The sample shows you an easy but effective way to use various colors for items such as scarves, blankets, hats etc.
