My first pieces worked in the Reversible Intarsia Technique were done in double crochets. Although half doubles are great for creating simple shapes with smooth lines, once you are comfortable with the double crochet stitches in the technique, the half-color stitches enable you to recreate any grid type pattern by counting one double crochet row as two rows of single crochet.
|Square #9: Diamonds|
|Square #10: Waves|
Upright "Waves" are created by alternating rows of Double Crochet Half-Color Stitches with rows of regular upright double crochets. This is not the prettiest square, but it serves the purpose of practicing the Half-Color stitches which will be a new concept to many crocheters. By using 'half-color' stitches, you can recreate any single crochet grid pattern, counting each row of double crochets as two rows of single crochet.
