The harlequin stitch is a great technique for a project where you want to show off your crochet skills (like a baby shower or wedding gift, perhaps).
While this stitch looks complicated, there are several variations that are a little easier. You should be familiar with single crochets, double crochets, and crochet-togethers.
This stitch can look like flat zigzags or have a more starburst appearance depending on which pattern you choose to follow.
