How to Crochet the Knit Purl Stitch Notes:
Haven't ever done the Split Single Crochet (ssc)? Read more about it and a tip for success here: https://brianakdesigns.com/split-stitch-mania/
This stitch pattern works best in the round without joining. I hope to find a way to work this stitch flat, but I haven't been happy with my swatches yet. I'll update this post if I am ever happy with working this stitch pattern in rows.
Round 1: Chain an even number of stitches, for the video I chained 42.
Round 2: Working in the round, single crochet in each chain around, do not join.
Round 3: *In blo sc 1, ssc in next*; repeat from * to * around, do not join.
Repeat Round 3 until desired height.
