Sorry I've been slacking the past week! Got busy with my daughter and things. So here we go
Usually when you crochet, you work in only one direction from right to left. You work a stitch, and then the stitch to the left of it, all the way across your row (or around your round). But you can make really nice-looking X stitches in your work by going back a stitch or three instead of forward. These X stitches need a pair or legs - if only to have soething to cross - and so they are made only with double crochet or taller stitches. To make one, try this: Skip 3 stitches and double crochet in the next stitch. Chain 1, the double crochet into the second skipped stitch. To do this, whip your hook around the yarn as usual, then insert your hook from front to back into the second of the threw stitches you skipped. When you grab the strand of yarn to continue your double crochet stitche, the working yarn will wrap around the outside of the first double crochet you made, but don't worry about it - that is what is going to help create the crossedness of this crossed stitch. Just grab the yarn pull it on through, and complete the stitch as usual. Kinda nice isn't it?
The video is the same stitch only a different number or variation.
