The best part about this stitch is that it's really beginner friendly. While it may not look simple, all you need to know how to do is a single crochet and a chain stitch!
The traditional version of this stitch starts with an odd number of stitches to get started on this pattern. However, if you don't want to have to worry about adding a border to your blanket, scarf, or purse afterwards, Ambassador Crochet recommends starting with an even number of chains.
If you look closely, this stitch has a pretty, almost floral, looking pattern. The stitches appear to crawl over the entire project. If you want to switch colors, you can. You'll need to wait until you finish at least your third row before switching colors. Row three is a repeating pattern that continues until you reach the end of your project, and you want to add finishing rows.
