Cottage Twists Dishcloth Pattern and Tutorial

Here’s how it works.

Today I am going to show you another variation on the v stitch. This v-stitch alternates with a row of single crochet. This is a great beginner crochet project to try and I have included a photo tutorial to help you learn how to make the stitch and create a dishcloth or afghan square. The stitch multiple is also provided to allow you to create a project to any size you wish. An optional size square (4 inches) and edging have been added to the end of the post. If you would like to see how to do an invisible join when you finish off your project, please review the invisible join tutorial. It is very easy to do and makes your project have a professional finished edge.
