The alternate stitch is a very simple stitch that provides texture and visual appeal to your projects. If you can make a single crochet, you can make the alternate stitch. In this post you will find a video to teach the stitch, written instructions, and a written and charted pattern for a practice piece.
For this tutorial I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice yarn and a US I/9/5.5mm crochet hook.

Repeat row 2 for pattern.
