The Parquet Crochet Stitch is a beautiful open-lace stitch.  The great thing about the Parquet Stitch is how versatile it is.  It makes a great fabric for a market bag, but also for a shawl or scarf. 

The Parquet Stitch looks like an advanced technique yet is very easy to learn.  It uses simple stitches and only a two-row repeat.   Once mastered it is one of those great stitches just made for binge watching.

This tutorial uses a bulky cotton yarn with a 6.5mm crochet hook.
