pattern for the crazy stitch
Chain any amount of stitches in multiples of 4.
Row 1 - Ch1, Sc 1 in first ch, Ch 3 + 3 dc's in same stitch, sk 3 stitches, *Sc 1, Ch 3 + 3 dc's in same st, sk 3 stitches* to end, sc in last ch, Ch 3, Turn
Row 2 - Sc 1 in Ch3 of previous row. Ch 3 and 3 dc in same chain- *Sc 1, Ch 3 + 3 dc's in same st, sk 3 stitches* to end, sc in last st, Ch 3, Turn
From the second row on, you will not really skip 3 stitches - the 3 dc's of the previous row will in fact lie diagonally below your 'new 3 dc's'
