How to Crochet a Crunch Stitch
Here are some tips that may be helpful to know before stating on your new crunch stitch project.
Does this stitch make a pattern with one row or two?
This is a two-row pattern, because you alternate stitches between rows by working a tall stitch into a short one. Every two rows, the height comes out even.
How do I calculate the length of the beginning chain for a scarf?
If getting a particular finished length of the scarf is important, make a gauge swatch. Chain a multiple of your pattern repeat that is at least six inches (15 cm) long, and work until the piece is at least six inches tall. Measure the length of the piece from side to side. Then, do the math: the length you want the scarf to be should be divided by the width of the gauge switch and multiplied by the number in the original chain. If you don’t need to be so exact, just chain until the chain itself is about as long as you want the scarf to be. (Source)
