Crochet Crunch Stitch or Moss Stitch is one of my absolute favorite alterations of the half double crochet stitch. 

It gives texture without making things complex.

I’ve used this stitch for my Lux Headband crochet pattern & also the Lux Hat, however crocheted in the round, not in rows as with this stitch tutorial.

Let’s dive into the stitch tutorial!
