Staggered Square Crochet Stitch

This staggered square stitch is created over 2 rows and when crocheted
looks stunning, I have added a pictorial to today’s post for you to see how
Pattern Row 2 is made step by step, If you would like to make something
with this stitch I have put a link below to a free baby blanket I have designed
using the staggered square design. See my Stitch Category for more stitches.

    Thank you so very much for the lovely FREE Staggered Square Crochet stitch instructions. I’m a little above a beginner, but with your wonderful instructions and pictures, I feel confident that I will be successful with this stitch. Once I feel comfortable and know the pattern, I want to crochet your gorgeous Pastel Baby Blanket that you designed using the Staggered Square stitch.

    Also, a heartfelt thank you for all the hours you put into your patterns to help people like me learn the art of crocheting. Although new to crochet, I have a very strong passion for it and hope to create some lovely items (like your Pastel Baby Blanket). I truly appreciate how you write your instructions, patterns, provide pictures to help us learn. You are so talented and extremely kind to give so much of your time and talent to help others learn.

    Wish me luck ~ I know I’m going to need it, but I’m stubborn and determined to learn your pretty stitch so I can crochet your gorgeous Pastel Baby Blanket (and I don’t even have a baby!!).

    Happy Day To You
