Crunch Crochet Stitch is another one of simple crochet stitches that just uses half double crochet (hdc) and slip stitch (sl). With just these two main stitches, you can get a fancy-looking textured fabric. It visually makes the fabric more interesting by creating a 3D texture.
This crochet stitch is worked by repeating a single row (Row 2) of the pattern. It is worked by alternating half double crochet and slip stitches. So, in the first row, you alternate half double crochet and slip stitch. In the second row, you reverse this process so the half doubles are worked on top of the slip stitches and slip stitches on the half doubles of the previous row. And although it combines stitches of different heights, there are no wavy edges at the end and it creates a straight line.
Most people use it to make projects such as dishcloths or washcloths but if you use it for wearables or blankets, you will find that the completed project is quite warm and cozy because of its texture.
