The Piggyback Stitch


The newest Learn A Stitch Washcloth is an interesting and easy variation of the half double crochet stitch.

The piggyback stitch is aptly named because one half double piggybacks onto another to create this unique texture.

The video will walk you through the piggyback process while making a useful washcloth.

Mini Shell Washcloth

Here is the 3rd Learn A Stitch Washcloth.

This one is called the Mini Shell because the super simple pattern repeat makes these cute little shells throughout.

I also happened upon a cool new edging that is really fun to do. It gives a crab stitch (AKA reverse single crochet) look, but thinner and you don’ t have to work backwards.

When Will My Owl Obsession End?

Owl Washcloth
Coming Soon

No time soon!

I’m making up a new video on how to make this cabled owl washcloth. The cabled owl has been around since the 70s in knit form — I know this because I found an old ad for a pattern in one of my vintage magazines. I wanted to come up with my own crochet version of it and this washcloth is what happened. I’m 3/4 of the way finished with the video and should hopefully have it up by next week. If you’re not following the blog already, now is a great time to sign up. You’ll get notification as soon as it’s added!
