Checkerboard stitch is a very common knitting pattern, so today we are going to show you how to do it with a crochet hook. Each “block” of the checkerboard is 12 stitches wide and 8 rows tall. If crocheting the checkers as well , you will need an additional skein of each color. If you are looking for a square pattern to make blankets, afghans, cushion covers and more this checkerboard granny square are great together.

You will repeat this process of single crocheting 5 stitches, inserting hook in 6th, and pulling up your alternate color to complete the 6th single crochet. You will do this a total of 8 times, and by the end of the row you will have a total of 48 sc. crochet for beginners set Alternating crochet stitches of double crochet and double crochet with chain spaces completes this checkered crochet pattern. The stitches used make it a good project for those just branching out into Tunisian crochet who want a little variety.
Pull your other color of yarn on top of the previous row and stitch over it with single crochets in the next 3 spots, crocheting through both loops. As you continue working your stitches the checkerboard pattern will take shape. Now each end when you swap over the color you’ll have a visible cross over. If this is avoidable I can’t figure it out so I’d suggest making sure your yarn crosses over on the same side of the fabric each time. This way you’ll have a perfect “pretty” side and one with the color changes visible on the edges. Additionally, having a soft game like this crochet checkerboard game means it’s super easy to take it anywhere.
The checker is a pattern of stripes with crossed horizontal and vertical lines which form squares.
