The chart for the stitch:
This is the video tutorial, just hit “play” to see how this stitch it’s done:
The written instructions:
Row 1: 2 ch, 1 dc in 3rd chain of the hook, continue with dc until the end of the row.
Row 2: 1 ch, sc in each stitch.
Row 3: 2 ch, 1 fpdc in first dc of the row 1; 1 dc, *1 fpdc, 1 dc*; repeat *-*;
Row 4: 1 ch, sc in each stitch of previous row.
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.
