Happy Crocheting!


  1. That’s a bit different to the grit stitch I’ve seen before. I’ts actually the same as a stitch I’ve used on booties and hats but that pattern calls it “shell stitch”. Don’t ya just love consistant naming of stitches. :)

    • I have done a lot of things with the shell stitch. This is not a shell stitch. I like the stitch and have almost finished my first dishcloth with this stitch. Very easy pattern.

  2. Just what I was looking for to make a neck scarf! Maybe even a hooded one! Very pretty stitch!

  3. Very pretty pattern, easy to follow,thanks for sharing.

  4. Would you be kind enough to give me the dimensions of the dish cloth? I am starting making 8″ squares for two different charities and I love this pattern. I really haven’t learned to resize a pattern yet! Sorry!
    Love your website. Bought a baby afghan pattern (another charity) and am following you by email, I believe!
    Thank you!

    • Cherie, I believe the dishcloth was about 10″ but I don’t have it anymore. You could get a good idea by just working up the first row.

  5. Do you have a printer-friendly patterns??? that would be great.

    • Josephine, I’m working on uploading all my free patterns in pdf. Hopefully they will all be up soon.

      • Thanks so very much for replying back. Much appreciated.

  6. Hi…I was wondering what the repeat is… 3+1 or 2 +1. I like a smaller dish rag.

    • To make it smaller adjust by 2 chains at a time. So you could do 29, 27, 25, etc.

      Hope that helps.
