In this Crochet for Knitters video, I show you how to work the Basketweave stitch as a dishcloth. This stitch is pretty and really fun to work! Info below on how to try it out as a dishcloth, and if you end up loving the stitch, you can easily work it into a whole blanket or throw.
Instructions for working this stitch:
Chain multiple of 6 + 3
Row 1: skip 2 chains, *double crochet in next chain, repeat from * to end, chain 2, turn work.
Rows 2 & 3: skip 1 double crochet, *1 post double crochet around the front (3 times), 1 post double crochet around the back (3 times)* repeat between *s to end, 1 double crochet in turning chain, chain 2, turn work.
Rows 4 & 5: skip 1 double crochet, *1 post double crochet around the back (3 times), 1 post double crochet around the front (3 times)* repeat between *s to last stitch, 1 double crochet in turning chain, chain 2, turn work.
Repeat Rows 2-5.
Information on things you’ll see in this video:
The yarn I used for my dishcloths is Knit Picks Comfy Worsted in colors Silver Sage and Fizz.
I used a size H crochet hook, with a starting chain of 27 stitches. Each dishcloth is about 6 inches square, and used 22 grams of yarn.
The crochet hook I’m using is probably 20 years old (an old favorite, mostly for the color of it), size H, and is made by Boye.
The bamboo pins I use to demonstrate the path of the stitches can be found here.
My silver ring is actually a knitting needle gauge, and can be found here.
The nail polish I’m wearing is by Julep, color “Amanda”.
