Dishcloth Flower Stitch
Hey guys! I’m not sure about the trends in USA or other countries, but here in Denmark, crocheted dishcloths are very popular!
Mostly because they are pretty and very eco-friendly. In Denmark, you usually buy dishcloth in some kind of polyester something for no money at all. The problem with the, (other than they are ugly), are microplastics. Every time you wash them, a tiny amount of plastic gets released into nature.
So people started making their own in eco-friendly cotton. Yay!
Cotton yarn (very important it’s 100 % cotton)
Crochet hook in appropriate size
Loveknitting Paintbox Cotton
2,5 mm crochet hook
This is quite smaller than what the yarn calls for, but that way I avoid holes. Choose based on your preference and crochet tension.
I chained 72 and ended up with the size 24cm x 24 cm (9.5 in x 9.5 in)
Okay I have to say this: I have NO idea if this stitch is called the flower stitch. I came up with it on my own, by I can hardly be the first one ever. So I just called it the flower stitch. If you know the proper name (if it has one), please leave a comment!
I find charts easiest to crochet by, so that’s what I always make, but I know not everybody likes them, so I’m going to write out the pattern too. (Although I’m not as good as writing patterns as I am making charts) Chart first:
Chain a multiple of 3 (I chained 72)
Sc in second ch from hook, skip 1 ch, “sc 2x ch, sc” in same stitch, skip 2 ch, “sc 2x ch, sc” in same stitch, continue until 2 ch left, skip 1 ch, sc in last, ch 1, turn.
1 sc, “sc 2x ch, sc”, in next chain space from the row under, continue “sc 2x ch, sc” in all chain spaces, sc in last stitch, ch 1, turn.
Repeat row 2 until desired size.
Last row: Sc in first stitch, sc in first chain space, “ch 2, sc in next chain space”, repeat “—” until last stitch, sc in last stitch.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
