Crochet stripes, dc and X motifs in two colors


Here comes a new stitch for our cushions matching 2022 blanket . If the first 2 patterns exploited bricks, the new proposal chooses crochet stripes, alternating on colors and heights between double crochet and X motifs. The yarn is still our Milo. For a 40x40cm cushion work 20x20cm each motif square.
