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!
Crochet Hook H
Lily and Cream Cotton Yarn- I like to use cotton for washcloths
Sc- Single Crochet
Hdc- Half Double Crochet
Row 1: Sc in second stitch from the hook. Hdc in the next stitch. Repeat across. Ch 1, turn.
Row 2- Row 25: Repeat row one.
At the end of row 25, do 3 sc in the corner stitch. Sc around the entire wash cloth to put a finish around it. Put 3 dc in each corner. Tuck in all loose ends with a yarn needle.
That’s it! Now you can go do some dishes!!
What do you think? Have you tried the seed stich before? What other projects could you make with it?
