Up and Down Crochet Stitch

Up and down crochet stitch, love this textured stitch, it’s so easy and quick to do and can be used in sooo many projects, I have used it in lots of baby garments and blankets.

I have made the sample in different colors of yarn, but trust me it looks just as beautiful in 1 colour.
