Used as a decorative texture or edging, crab stitch consists of working double crochet stitches in the ‘wrong’ direction (from left to right for right handed crocheters). After a right side row, do not turn. With the hook facing downwards, insert the hook into the next stitch to the right. Wrap the yarn around the hook and draw it through to the front of the work. Wrap the yarn around the hook and draw it through both loops on the hook. Repeat across the row.
