I found this pattern to be very easy and fast! I've done Bargello tapestry work, but have never seen a crochet version - beautiful! Thanks!

I had a HORRIBLE time with this stitch using this particular pattern. I even watched the video accompanying this, but the person filmed was constantly changing her instructions. I eventually figured it out on my own after nearly 12 attempts / tear-outs. The key here is that the chains form the 'merlons' (high portion of row). So as you approach the high point, you slip stitch in the top of the ch 3 (previous row), ch 3, dc in 2 dc and then ch 3, then slip stitch in the top of the ch 3 to complete the merlon. This also brings you level to the low point (crenel) which is just 2 dc. Once you get this down, the pattern is simple, goes fast and looks gorgeous. I'm making a baby blanket with this stitch for my German co-worker.
