How to crochet a Waffle stitch wash/dishcloth

The Waffle stitch wash/dishcloth is 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 Waffle stitch wash/dishcloth I’ve used 50 g cotton  and a 4 mm hook.

For this project I recommend this yarn:

The chart for the Alpine stitch:

This is the video tutorial, just hit “play” to see how this stitch it’s done:

The written instructions:

1. Row 1: dc in 3 rd ch from the hook, dc until the end of the row;

2. Row 2: 2 ch, 1 dc, *1 fpdc, 2 dc*, repeat *-*, 1 fpdc, 1 dc;

3. Row 3: 2 ch, 2 dc, *2 fpdc, 1 dc*, repeat *-*, 1 dc;

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 Waffle Stitch crochet a sc around the cloth.

For my wash/dishcloth I’ve started with 62 ch and I’ve crocheted the Alpine stitch for 28 rows. Don’t forget to make the round of sc at the end.

My wash/dishcloth has 23 cm (9 inch) length and 21 cm (8.5 inch) width.
