How to Crochet the Seed Stitch and A Free Washcloth Pattern

I love to learn new stitches! Sometimes I get stuck on double crochet on everything! Anyone else with me?

I like to create washcloths as I try a new stitch. This helps me to practice the stitches and also have a quick, easy product at the end of the session. Washcloths are easy and super useful!

Today, I will be showing the seed stitch. It is really easy! It is just a combination of a single crochet alternated with a double crochet. In this washcloth, I used a half double crochet. I wanted to make the washcloth have less holes. Sometimes double crochets produce holes. I like a nice, solid dish cloth.

The seed stitch is made by doing single crochet, double crochet, single crochet, double crochet across. The result is a nice textury, scrubbable piece of cloth that is perfect for scrubbing dishes with!

So, let’s get to the pattern!
