This stitch will create an almost solid fabric of double crochet, with raised diagonal dashes running from right to left.You can begin the pattern in the starting chain, but it tends to pull. You may want to begin with a row of double crochet for ease of learning. To make a double crochet, yarn over the hook from back to front.
Insert the hook in the next stitch and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook).Yarn over, pull through two loops on the hook (2 loops remaining on hook).
Yarn over, pull through the remaining two loops to complete a double crochet.The next stitch will be a triple crochet. To make a triple crochet, yarn over the hook twice from back to front.
To begin the Diagonal stitch, skip the next three stitches, insert the hook in the fourth stitch.Pull up a loop (4 loops on hook).
Yarn over, pull through two loops on hook (3 loops remaining on hook).Yarn over, pull through two loops (2 loops remaining)
Yarn over, pull through the remaining two loops to complete the triple crochet.The next steps are where the Front Diagonal Stitch gets its name: The triple crochet just made will actually be behind the work when you complete the stitch, but the next stitches will be made in *front* of the triple crochet. To continue the stitch, locate the first skipped stitch.
Yarn over for a double crochet. Insert the hook in the first skipped stitch from front to back, but don't go all the way behind the triple. Keep the yarn and hook in front of the triple crochet stitch.Pull up a loop. Check to make sure the triple crochet is free behind the stitch, and complete the double crochet.
Make the next double crochet in the next (2nd) skipped stitch. Remember to keep the yarn and hook in front of the triple.Make a double crochet in the last of the skipped stitches, in front of the triple again
If the Front Diagonal stitch has been made correctly, the three double crochet stitches will be independent from the triple crochet. You will be able to pull up the group of doubles while the triple stays fixed in the back.For each additional Front Diagonal stitch: Skip the next three stitches, make a triple crochet in the fourth stitch. Keeping the yarn and hook in front of the triple, make a double crochet in each of the first, second and third skipped stitches.
Make a return row of regular double crochet to create a one-sided texture, or work in consecutive rows for a double-sided design (one-sided shown). Combine with the Back Diagonal Stitch to make a zigzag pattern. source
