This is a photo tutorial of the cross stitch that I used in my crossing over patterns. So far I have published the Crossing Over Cowl and the Crossing Over Beanie. And a few more patterns are coming soon that use the same stitch.
This cross stitch variation is basically the same as any other cross stitch, except that it is worked over 3 stitches instead of 2. Also, the second double crochet is crocheted entirely in front of the first double crochet so that both sides of the fabric look great.
Step 1: Work your crochet stitches as it calls for in the pattern up to the crossed stitch.
Step 2: Skip the next 2 stitches. Then double crochet into the next stitch.
Step 3: Chain 1.
Step 4a: Double Crochet into the first of the skipped stitches. (See images below)
Step 4b: Wrap the yarn over and insert your hook from front to back as pictured.
Step 4c: Bring your hook out in front of the last double crochet made.
Step 5: Wrap the yarn over again and pull through. You should have 3 loops on the hook.
Step 6: Finish the double crochet as normal.

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
