5 Little Monsters: Blossom Stitch Crochet Washcloths

Blossom Stitch Crochet Washcloths


I made these washcloths a few weeks ago as a Mother's Day gift. They are a little bit lacier and more open than I normally use for dishcloths or washcloths but it is solid enough to still work well and I wanted to use a pretty feminine stitch. The stitch I used is called the blossom stitch and it is made using a combination of single crochet, double crochet, and chain stitches.



I always use 100% cotton yarn any time I am making washcloths or dishcloths. For this particular project I used Peaches and Cream yarn but any worsted weight cotton yarn will work just fine. The colors I used were Aquamarine, Ocean Coral, Fresh Lilac, and Mint. I used about half of a 2.5 oz ball for each washcloth so you can probably get 2 out of each ball if you make them the same size I did.


These washcloths are quick to make and paired with some pretty smelling soap or lotion make a nice gift. Crocheted washcloths are nice to have on hand when you need a quick little gift for someone. Maybe a mom, grandma, sister or friend.


Blossom Stitch Crochet Washcloths

Finished size approximately 8 1/2 inches square

Supplies:

  • 60 yards of cotton yarn
  • H crochet hook

Instructions:

Begin by ch 30 (if you want to make your washcloth bigger or smaller add or subtract a multiple of 4)

Row 1: sc in the 2nd ch from hook, (skip 1, [dc, ch 1, dc] in the next stitch, skip 1, sc in next stitch) repeat to the end of the row, turn

Row 2: ch 4, skip dc, sc in first ch space, ch 1, skip dc, dc in next sc, (ch 1, sc in next ch space, ch 1, dc in next sc) repeat to the end of the row ending with a dc in the first sc of previous row, turn

Row 3: ch 1, sc in first dc, ([dc, ch 1, dc] in next sc, sc in next dc) repeat to the end of the row ending with a sc in the 3rd chain of the starting ch 4 of the previous row, turn

 Repeat rows 2 and 3 until desired length ending with row 2. I repeated both rows 7 more times and then row 2 one more time. 

To finish sc evenly all around the outside edge working 3 sc in each corner, finish off and weave in ends.

  1. These are lovely! I like both the texture the stitch gives as well as the colours you've chosen, so I'll be pinning this for future reference.

    1. Thank you. I just posted it on Revelry, that is usually one of the first things I do and somehow with this one it didn't get done so thank you for reminding me. It should be there now.

  5. They look pretty but I'm lost at the instructions. I was just thinking about trying a bit of crochet to see if I can make something. I don't know what the ch dc and such are. Guess I need a book to get started.

  11. Do you know of a video tutorial for this stitch? I'm a beginner and I've found I can't follow written patterns. I understand the terms and abbreviations but I just cannot seem to translate them into actions unless I see the actions that go with the steps. I'm apparently a visual learner and can do them if I follow along with videos. Thanks in advance.
