How to Crochet the Side Saddle Stitch Video Tutorial

"The side saddle crochet stitch has a lovely, repetitive look that is both airy and substantial at the same time. The drape makes it perfect for afghans. I’ve been teaching myself new interesting crochet stitches lately and this is one that is definitely worth taking the time to figure out. The side saddle crochet stitch is simply a combination of single crochets, double crochets and chains, yet it looks so original. It has a beautiful, geometric pattern when viewed straight on, but the texture appears from the side angle is perhaps the most special part of this stitch. Check out this video tutorial to learn how to do it step-by-step!"
