Crochet for Knitters – Woven Stitch

In this Crochet for Knitters video, I show you how to work the Woven 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 a multiple of 2 + 3
Row 1: skip 2 chain stitches, 1 single crochet in next stitch, *chain 1, skip 1 chain stitch, 1 single crochet* repeat between *s to end of row, chain 2, turn work.
Row 2: *1 single crochet in chain space of previous row, chain 1*, repeat between *s to end of row, 1 single crochet in the turning chain space of previous row, chain 2, turn work.
Repeat Row 2.

Information on things you’ll see in this video:

In the striped dishcloth I made, I used Knit Picks Comfy Worsted in colors Fizz and White. I used a size H crochet hook, and a starting chain of 31.

The crochet hook I used is Knitter’s Pride Waves.

The yarns I used in the other samples are:
Green sample: Knit Picks Comfy Worsted
Bright pink sample: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky, crochet hook size J
Navy blue sample: Lion Brand Wool Ease, , crochet hook size H

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”.

  1. A thing for ending the row on a two color project. Stick hook into where the last stitch will be and pull up a loop of color A. Pull color b through the last two loops. You won’t see the color change. Then chain up with color B and work the two rows

    Stick needle into the ending stitch of color ending row. The last two loops on hook pull up the new color.

    Maybe that is clearer. You won’t see the color change and won’t have to crochet around to hide the color change.

    Try it out on a sample. Do the same when carrying the thread up the side with double crochet. Figured this out years ago.. Hope this helps.

  2. Another winner of a video (and pattern)! Everyone is getting a dishcloth with this pattern at Christmas. 😀
