I suddenly got the urge to crochet something in one go last night, so ironically sat up until too late making this while watching a tv programme about sleep problems, yawning my head off.
Isn’t the stitch lovely? I’ve been looking though my Vogue Stitchionary and Harmony Guide to Crochet Stitches to find out its name, but can’t find anything similar. Lack of sleep can affect your cognitive skills so I might well have missed it… Basically it’s 1 dc, 2 tr into a ch, miss 2 ch and repeat to the desired height.
Strictly speaking it needs blocking of course, some of those curly round corners need the spa treatment, but since it’s going to spend half of its life wet it seems pointless.
I used this pattern by Kara Gunza. Do you recognise the cotton? It’s the ball of Rico aran creative cotton I bought the other week during my visit to Guthrie and Ghani. I’ve never used aran cotton before. Actually I’m not sure I’ve used aran anything before. It was a bit splitty but worth it for having such a soft cotton cloth at the end. I wanted a nice close texture so used a 4mm hook and chained about 32 to begin so it would still be a decent size.
I forgot to report that the last washcloth hasn’t made my face yellow. The Planet Penny cotton is great. If you want a cloth with good scrubability that’s the one.
Now I have a random picture of some garlic a relative’s grown. Isn’t it impressive? It looks just like it does in the shops!
it’s a lovely stitch – maybe you made it up, and you are the Inventor???/ :-)
And a fictional name and blog? ;-p
That’s a really pretty stitch.
Now if I had a wash cloth like that I’d actually wash my face :-)
Indeedy – I may have a dirty face though ;-)
So lovely to meet you via our blogs, thanks for your comment about my shawl for my mother in law. I’m loving this pretty stitch, thank you for sharing. I still have some of my Planet Penny cotton left and may very well just make one or two of these. I think they will make good Christmas gifts this year xox Penny
You got me hooked on the trebles cloth, may have to have a go at this now. I’m supposed to be a quilter :)
Multi tasking my lovely :-) its all the rage.
That’s a great wash cloth Rachel – such an interesting stitch, I’ll give that a go thank you! How about that garlic – and good to know where it’s come from too – no sprays I presume?

Rachel it looks like the star stitch. Or it could be a variation of the crunch stitch or trinity stitch. :)
