The crossed dc is worked over an area of two stitches. To begin, skip the next stitch. Yarn over the hook, with the hook ready to begin making a double crochet in the following stitch.
Make a double crochet in the stitch that follows the skipped stitch.
Making a double crochet in the stitch that was skipped: Cross the hook in front of the dc just made and, with the working yarn strand in the back, pull the strand through the skipped stitch and pull it to the left of the dc-just-made, so that the first part of the dc being made in the skipped stitch wraps across the post of the dc-just-made. Next, yarn over the hook, pull yarn through two loops, yarn over hook again and pull through the last two loops to complete the dc.
Materials: Camouflage print DK 100g, 4.5mm hook, darning needle.
