Learn a new crochet pattern to create a textured stitch using this easy, step-by-step tutorial by Claire Montgomerie.
The great thing about this stitch is that the finished fabric has a surface that’s perfect for gently cleaning delicate skin, and the soft Eco Cotton yarn I use in this tutorial is a perfect match!
Follow the steps below to try it out, and put your new skills to use with my free Eco Washcloth Set crochet pattern.
st - Stitch
sc - Single crochet (UK double crochet)
ch - Chain
ch-sp - Chain space
Make a foundation chain with an even number of chain stitches, and work as follows:
1st row: 1sc in second ch from hook, * ch1, miss next ch, 1sc in next ch,* to end, turn.
2nd row: ch1 (doesn’t count as a st), 1sc in same st, ch1 *Insert hook in next ch-sp, yarn over, draw a loop through, insert hook in next ch-sp, yarn over, draw a loop through, (3 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through all 3 loops, ch1*
2nd row continued: Repeat between * and * by first inserting the hook into the ch-sp from the 2nd yarn over in the previous st, work to last st, 1sc, turn.
Repeat 2nd row for as many as your pattern requires.
