Crochet rio stitch pattern:

The starting chain is made in a multiple of 4 plus 2 sts.

Row 1: Using yarn A, chain 18. DC in the 4th ch from hook, ch3, dc in the same 4th ch, ch1, *skip 3ch and work into the 4th [dc, ch3, dc], ch1 – repeat from * till the end of row, skip 1 ch, dc into the last ch. At the end when you have 2 loops on your hook you will add a new yarn color. Normally, you would yarn over and pull thought last 2 loops to finish a dc. Instead draw yarn b through the last 2 loops on your hook. Do not cut the yarn A and go on crocheting with yarn B. Ch4, turn.

Row 2: work into the same loops and you worked in Row 1 [dc, ch3, dc], ch1 – repeat till the end of row, dc into the 2d ch (count from the bottom). Do not cut the yarn and do not turn.
