The crochet Alpine stitch washcloth/dishcloth is beautiful and textured, perfect for every day use. At the beginning this stitch may seem a little bit difficult, but actually is very easy, just be patient and you’ll see how beautiful it is and I’m sure you will enjoy this project.

For my crochet Alpine stitch washcloth/dishcloth I’ve used 50 g cotton  and a 4 mm hook.

For this project I recommend these yarn:

This is a premium 100% cotton anti-bacterial and machine washable, which makes it perfect for this project. Here you find this yarn:

Royal Blue: 


Dark Green:


Here you can find your favorite color: so you can crochet this washcloth in any color you like.

If you prefer an acrylic yarn I recommend this antibacterial acrylic, here you can find your favorite color:


ch= chain;

sc= single crochet;

dc= double crochet;

fpdc= front post double crochet.

Pattern Instructions:

Make an even number of chains.

The chart for the stitch:

The written instructions:
1.Row 1: 2 ch, 1 dc in 3rd chain of the hook, continue with dc until the end of the row.
2. Row 2: 1 ch, sc in each stitch.
3. Row 3: 2 ch, 1 fpdc in first dc of the row 1; 1 dc, *1 fpdc, 1 dc*; repeat *-*;
4. Row 4: 1 ch, sc in each stitch of previous row.
5. Row 5: 2 ch; *1 dc, 1 fpdc*; repeat *-*;

Make sure that where you have a double crochet on the previous row to make a front post double crochet and where you have a front post double crochet you will make a double crochet.

Repeat the pattern from row 2 until you reach the desire dimension.

After you finish the alpine stitch crochet a sc around the cloth.

For my wash/dishcloth I’ve started with 54 ch and I’ve crocheted the Alpine stitch for 44 rows. Don’t forget to make the round of sc at the end.

My wash/dishcloth has 23 cm (9 inch) length and 20 cm (8 inch) width.
