Reinventing the Wheel

Linked double crochet stitches give this pattern a dense, but still flexible texture. Made in a cotton yarn, it works well as a trivet, a washcloth, or a potholder. With only 7 rounds, it works up really quickly too! The pattern uses only 2 different stitches, and includes photos and instructions for both stitches. There is also a link to a full tutorial for the linked double crochet stitch. It doesn't use a lot of yarn, so is a great for using up scraps.

Simple Shells Washcloth: Quick & Easy Textured Stitch Pattern

The Simple Shells Washcloth is made with alternating rows of solid stitches and groups of shells, creating a pretty surface for scrubbing anything you need in the bath and kitchen! This washcloth is worked in rows using chains and double crochet stitches. You can easily customize the stitch repeat in multiples of 5+2 (+2 for the turning chain), then work any odd multiple of rows. While you don’t see the term “shell” in the specialty stitch and technique section of this pattern, the group of five double crochet stitches worked into one place is a shell. Either way of writing the instruction is correct, and we hope beginners enjoy the simplicity in this version (the stitch chart should help, too). THIS IS A GREAT PATTERN BECAUSE: Washcloths are fun projects to learn new crochet stitches (especially when you follow our crochet chart with the written instructions)! You can use these in the bath or kitchen (plus, they make great gifts)! This project works great with cotton yarns (just one skein or less)! You’ll get to practice a lot of crochet skills: rows, stitch tension, stitch counting and recognition, shells (5 double crochet stitches into 1 space) , borders, gauge & size, finishing techniques & more!
