Tutorial: Diagonal Box Stitch P1

Just to stress to everyone I am NOT a photographer, so some of these pictures may not be the best in detail, but I hope with the pictures and the written word you will understand this tutorial.

Ch = chain
DC = double crochet
Slst = slip stitch

Make a Ch of 6

In the 4th ch from the hook, make a DC

Continue to make ONE DC in the 5th and 6th chain from the hook

Make a fresh Ch of 6 again

You make ONE DC in each of the 4, 5 and 6th chain again

Place your work so it looks like the picture above (yes girls saggy boob time).

Then you FLIP the left hand one up like so

We are going to now make the first step of our diagonal.

If you look at the piece you have flipped up it looks a bit like a ladder, you place your hook through the top two rungs of this piece and do a slst, then Ch 3

Them make 3DC's in the same space

You have now made TWO rounds of Diagonal Box Stitch - Congratulations.

The next 2 posts will explain how to make a third row then how to DECREASE
