This stitch has great texture and can be used for a wide variety of projects. For a sample of the stitch I created this ripple stitch dishcloth. It’s the perfect size to give this stitch a try.

  1. >Yay! A washcloth pattern. I just signed up for One Crafty Mumma's washcloth-along.'m going to try and knock out a few washcloths, and this pattern is perfect. Plus, it is a new stitch for me!

  2. >Thanks for the link. I'm going to check it out.

  3. >Hello Kristine, Just wanted to thank you for everything here. I have found a lot it very helpful. I do Bible studies around here and was wondering if you had any great ideas for a prayer box. I like the ones I've done, but creativity is not my forte by far. lol. Thanks for your help.

  4. >The boxes I've done have been done through photobucket. I've used my own pics (but you can use any of theirs) and then used their editing tools to create the box I wanted. They don't have a ton of choices but its worked for me so far. I have heard others use Picaso and I've been really impressed with what they've made. If you give me some idea of what you want I may be able to try to make something for you.~Kristine

  5. >Very nice website. I like all your different dish/wash cloth patterns. Keep up the good work.Thanks for sharing your patterns. I'm always looking for something different.

  6. >Thank you for the compliment. I'll be adding more free patterns in the weeks ahead.

    • Hi Sharon, you can adjust the pattern in 3’s. So take out 3, 6, 9, 12 sts, etc…. Hope that helps.

    • Thank you, Sherri! I would love to see this made up as a scarf. If you do make it, please send me a picture.

      • hi Kristine, if you are a member of crochet addicts on fb (a totally great group of peeps and their work is amazing) I have the scarves posted there, with a link to your page :) I can make a full scarf with one skein of caron’s ss. am making these scarves for the homeless, they work up fast and I don’t have to think about stitch count. I also gave quite a few of these dishcloths for Christmas prezzies and they were very well received. thanks again for this great pattern!
