Crochet Tutorial: Tulip Stitch

The crochet Tulip Stitch is a very nice stitch, easy to make. It is also known as the “Diagonal Box Stitch”, because in fact it creates double crochet boxes that take opposite directions.

It is a reversible crochet stitch with a compact texture, which makes it particularly suitable for blankets, shawls or bags. And why not, for a garment, such as a top or cardigan.
