Learn how to modify the raise diagonal stitch with this crochet tutorial!

This is a fun crochet tutorial for a textured stitch pattern that uses only double crochet and post stitches.

The original stitch pattern used single crochet, double crochet and front post double crochet. As someone who has a never-ending to make list and limited time, I chose to modify the stitch pattern to work up quicker and without skipping a stitch behind the post stitches.

Personally, I’m not a fan of the skipped stitch, so I added a step to the front post extended treble stitch to create a smooth backside of the fabric. I used a similar technique in the Modified Split Front Post Stitch used in the Wrapped in Waves Cape.

Below you’ll find instructions for this crochet stitch tutorial in two forms, starting with foundation stitches and starting with chains. Plus a video tutorial.
