I use this stitch a lot for the body of my hats or variations, especially when make a men’s hat with Red Heart Zebra yarn. This makes a cool pattern with this color of yarn. I will include written and visual pattern for this stitch. This is again from Crocheting with dummies at http://www.dummies.com/crafts/crocheting/stitches/how-to-make-a-crossed-double-crochet-stitch/.
Cross Double Crochet Stitch
Decide where you want to place the crossed double crochet stitch and skip a stitch at that point in the row.
You’ll be going back to that skipped stitch.
Work 1 double crochet (dc) in the next stitch.
Work 1 double crochet in the stitch that you skipped.
By working the double crochet behind or in front of the first double crochet stitch you complete the stitch.
The completed stitch makes an X in the row.
Repeat the preceding steps to continue working crossed double crochet stitches across the row.
Stitch diagrams use symbols to give you a pictorial description of the pattern design; they may or may not include written directions.
These are the symbols for a crossed double crochet stitch, either of which you might find in a crochet stitch diagram. ( As I discussed in reading a diagram directions,)
