Abstract: The present invention relates to a new method for creating crocheted items using a classical crochet hook to form stitches in a new pattern. The pattern produces a visually very attractive surface (on both front and back side) and leads to a specific thickness and density of the produced items which makes them keep their shape very well. The new crocheting method can be applied to a variety of materials producing items especially in the fields of garments and home accessories. The present invention is described in one basic version and two variations.
