The Lemon Peel Stitch has such beautiful texture, especially when when worked on the diagonal! Keep on reading below for all of the details on working up this fun C2C Lemon Peel Stitch Dishcloth! This Lemon Peel Stitch Dishcloth is worked in back-and-forth rows, but for an extra neat effect and texture, it is worked on the bias, or on the diagonal! The technique is called corner to corner or C2C crochet. This free crochet pattern also features a full video tutorial that goes along with the 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!
The Camellia Washcloth is a beginner friendly, textured washcloth pattern that is great for the kitchen or bathroom! A simple, one row repeat creates a beautiful oversized washcloth. Pattern Difficulty: Easy Sizing: 10” x 10” Yarn: 94-205 yards Dishie Worsted 100% cotton yarn You might be wondering if crochet washcloths are really useful and hold up well to a dirty pot in the sink or stuck on food. I’m here to tell you that if you use the right yarn, the answer is yes! I use my crochet washcloths in the kitchen mostly. They are used to wash dishes, wipe counters, and clean up spills. They get washed in the washing machine and dried in the dryer. And they look good as new after all that!
Use this pattern for the Crunch Stitch Washcloths to learn a new stitch and create something useful for your home at the same time. These washcloths are beginner-friendly, and you have a choice to make them either in one color or using two colors. My favorite one is the pink and blue version because you can use leftover scrap yarn from bigger projects. The solid bumpy texture of the crunch stitch is perfect for these washcloths. They make beautiful gift sets paired with a handmade soap or body wash.
