Reaching Out, One Stitch At a Time

Basket Stitch Dishcloth


I love trying out new stitches on a dishcloth. It works up quick and I’m not committed to a big project if I don’t like it.

Here’s a dishcloth using the basket stitch. 


Ch 34, 
Row 1:  sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each ch across, turn. (33 sc)  

Row 2: ch 1, sc in 1st sc, sc in back loop only of next 31 sc, sc in last sc, turn.

Row 3:  ch 1, sc in 1st sc, sc in back loop only of next 2 sc, *sc below, sc in back loop of next 3 sc, repeat from * to end, sc in last sc, turn.  

Row 4:  Repeat Row 2.  

Row 5:  ch 1, sc in 1st sc, *sc below next sc, sc in back loop of next 3 sc, repeat from * across, sc in last sc, turn.  

Rows 6-39:  Repeat Rows  

Row 40:  sc in each stitch across.
Fasten Off.


Happy Crocheting!
