Knit Stitch Dishcloth at Crochet Spot

The knit stitch is a remarkable stitch to use when you want something unique but still basic, because it is worked just like a single crochet, only shallower. Check out the tutorial for this stitch here!

Using this stitch for a dishcloth is a perfect way to add character to an everyday piece. Crochet this dishcloth in only a few hours or less and add it to your linen supplies for a rustic, handmade touch! And don’t be surprised when your friends want a few as well.

Tip: always use yarn made from natural fibers, specifically cotton and linen, for kitchen linens so that they won’t pill with constant use!

Free Crochet Pattern: Chunky Knit Stitch Mittens

Crochet Pattern: Chunky Knit Stitch Mittens

Have you ever made a pair of mittens before? It may sound a little daunting if you haven’t but believe me, it’s really quite simple. Using the knit stitch, I’ve designed this simple mittens pattern to be basic enough for new crocheters.

Don’t let the details get you down. I suggest two ways of working this mittens pattern – following the instructions straight through, or sizing it accordingly as you go. If you’re the hands-on type (ahem, no pun intended), then I would recommend tailoring each step to your size. For example, try the cuff around your arm and adjust it appropriately. Then the length before the thumb, and next the opening. If you find my instructions don’t meet up with your sizing then simply subtract or add a row here and there. What is important about this pattern is the basic steps: cuff, wrist, thumb-hole, hand length, and thumb length.

Free Crochet Pattern: Chunky Bun Beanie

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on January 23rd, 2018 by Amy – Be the first to comment

Chunky Bun Beanie

In this beanie pattern I have compiled two popular elements in crochet right now, the bun beanie aspect and the crochet knit stitch. When I started designing this hat I didn’t intend to make it into a bun beanie but after coming to the end of the pattern it just seemed to be a good idea.

The single crochet stitch used in this pattern for the majority of the body is called many things — waistcoat stitch, center single crochet, center post single crochet, shallow single crochet, and the crochet knit stitch. However you call it, what attracts most people to the stitch is that it looks a whole lot like the stockinette stitch in knitting.

But don’t let this intimidate you, this is as easy as single crochet, because that is exactly what it is! By inserting the hook into the lower middle of each single crochet, you will have effectually created a “knit” crochet stitch. Have fun!

Free Crochet Pattern: Mason Jar Crochet Hook Holder

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on January 17th, 2018 by Rachel Choi – 10 Comments

This pattern was requested by a Crochet Spot reader!
If you have an extra mason jar laying around the house, you can use it to store your crochet hooks! Crochet this simple top to place on a mason jar and you have an instant storage solution. You can also use the holder for pencils and pens. Use a mason jar with a 2 1/2″ opening at the top. I’ve found that there are different sized jars that have the same size opening, so I close to use one of my shorter jars so the tops of the crochet hooks can stick out easier.
