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.

 

Abbreviations (US Terminology)

st - Stitch

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.
