Up-Down Stitch How-to

This stitch pattern is formed by working a single crochet in each double crochet of the previous row and by working a double crochet in each single crochet of the previous row. In the example above, I changed colors after every two rows.

Abbreviations (click on links, if you need a how-to)
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
sc = single crochet

Directions
Starting chain: Make a chain that is a multiple of 2, plus 1. Multiple of, Explained

Row 1: Sc in the 3rd ch from the hook, * dc in next ch, sc in next ch, repeat from *. Turn.
In Row 2, work a dc in each sc and work an sc in each dc.
Row 2: Ch 2, * sc in dc, dc in sc, repeat from *. Turn.
Repeat Row 2: Repeat row 2 for each row, until you have the length desired.
