Alpine Crochet Stitch Tips

This textured stitch would be perfect for a variety of different projects and yarn weight! I am itching to make a hat with it, myself. It also goes by the name of raised ripple stitch. The texture is created by making front post treble crochets in between the treble crochets from previous rows. These raised stitches are worked on the front side only. 

To start you’ll need to chain an odd number plus 2 more for the turning chain. Then you’ll do a row of dc and a row of sc.

Alpine Stitch FPTR placement

On row 3 you’ll set up your pattern by working a fptr around every other dc from 2 rows below. After completing that row you’ll follow it with a row of sc. Each even row will be a row of single crochets.

After the set up row, you’ll work your fptr around the dc stitches between each fptr from 2 rows below.

    I am slowly getting thru these CAL blocks. I love doing it but am rusty from being away for 10+ years.
    Can you explain how to block a square, please.
