* dishcloth

Posted on August 29th, 2006 by maitreya. Filed under Crochet.

I’m wedding hopping/on vacation this week, so lots of airplane crafting. One cross country flight = one crochet dishcloth. I wanted to try out some new crochet stitches in anticipation of making a scarf or something, so I got the Vogue crochet stitch dictionary out of the library. If this pattern is any indication, I wouldn’t recommend it. It was overly complicated and poorly written. About 3 rows in I figured out a much easier way to do it. This one was made with peaches and cream cotton yarn. If anybody’s interested, I can write up a little pattern.

    This pattern looks quite familiar…..

  2. Laural Says:

    I would be interested in the pattern. Or even just instructions for the stitch, it would make a nice striped scarf!

  3. julie Says:

    i’d love the pattern, if it’s not too much bother. I’ve been meaning to try making a few dishcloths, but haven’t gotten around to it yet. i love the stripes.

    I’d love a pattern! That stitch is great. (My name’s Elissa, and I’ve been reading for a while, never commented.)

    I’m making an afghan that looks like a similar stitch. I was inspired by the photo of the chair w/afghan on Yarnstorm a few posts back. I’ve been doing double crochet into the space. It’s really easy and fun. I’m using all sorts of wacky colors. :)

    I always want patterns! Thanks for sharing!

    I know what you mean about that book, I borrowed it from my local library just a week ago. I don’t normally return books early, but that one is going back. I wanted to take my stitches past the single/double crochet phase (I know more than that, but not too many stitch combos). It’s frustrating, I really like crocheting, but have had a hard time finding patterns that I like. I have found that even the “hip” new patterns that have been coming out are still, well, I don’t know, just not my style. I’m going to start ranting so I will stop myself now. Good luck finding a crochet stitch dictionary that is worth a hoot. I will keep a look out and let me know if you find something before I do! Cheers!

    I would love to have a pattern for this! Please write one up, it looks like a good dishcloth pattern.

    i have a book called “crochet school” which has a ton of crochet stitches, including some hairpin lace and other crazy stuff, and i am able to follow it, and i am not the best with diagrams. also, most of donna kooler’s stitch dictionaries are easy to follow. she has a crochet, knitting and even embroidery i think. i think vogue is notoriously crap with their patterns. easy to diffult.

  15. Maitreya Says:

    Re: Gisele, Crystallites hooks, they’re plastic. :)

  16. Anne Tien Says:

    May I have a pattern for this dishcloth? I have been looking for this stitch and finally found this. Thanks for any assistance.

  17. Mary Kemock Says:

    I would love the instructions for your little dish cloth. Thank you very much.

  18. Marleen Says:

  20. Elaine Coutts Says:

    I would love a copy too, please. Thank you.

  21. Michelle Gordon Says:

    I would like to get the pattern, I would like to learn how to use two colors row by row. Thank you.

  • Roasted Asparagus with Preserved Lemon & Anchovy Relish - Dishing Up the Dirt

  • This recipe with white beans is probably my favorite farro salad yet. The creamy beans play a huge role in that, along with the sweet tender leeks and fresh parsley. But it's the chunks of salty, citrusy preserved lemon, a condiment often used in Moroccan cooking, that really takes this salad to the next level.
