Free Crochet Pattern: Knit Stitch Dishcloth

By Amy – April 25th, 2018 2 Comments

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.
