Let’s Learn the Granule Stitch!

Granule Stitch

This is a lovely stitch – easy to work up and it provides beautiful texture. I’ve included a free crochet pattern for a 8″ x 8″ square in the granule stitch – it can be used as an Afghan Square or simply as a face cloth, dish cloth or wash cloth.

Single Crochet Picot Stitch (Right Handed Version)

  1. This heavy yarn is giving me a lot of trouble. I just have too much arthritis in my hands.

  2. Hi Betty! Do you mean the part where the picot needs to be on the RS of your work? The one side of the cloth will be completely flat while the other side will have all the ‘bumps’ picots showing – Let me know if this is what you needed please, Rhondda

  3. Hi
    love the pattern but can you explain the end of the picot stitch. I’m having trouble with it.
    thanks.

  4. Hi Mary! I do apologize!! With the stitch multiple it is chain a multiple of 2 stitches plus 1; but at the beginning of R2 I omitted a ch 1 to start the row off. I have amended the pattern above. It still shows ch 25 (which is the stitch multiple of 2 +1) but at the beginning of R2 it now shows the ch-1 I overlooked in the original post. Terribly sorry for the ‘bumpy’ start to our learn a new stitch project! Thank you for letting me know so I could fix it! Rhondda

  5. Ursula Avery and I encountered the same problem with the pattern. I think the original directions should be chain 26, not 25, because we skip the first chain, but that makes 24 stitches, 12 bumps wide without an ending sc. That’s why we ended up with 2 sc at the end of every bump row. I was sick the day I started this pattern and didn’t catch it so I’m going with my 11 bumps wide and adding more border to bring it up to the 8″ square. Thanks for the ‘bumpy’ pattern! lol

  6. I do not have access all the timev to a computer-I would like to copy and print this pattern to word so I can work on it.Why are people so set on everyone having 24/7 access to a computer! It won’t even print for me!

  7. Mary that is a very good idea – I can make 8″ squares for each so if people want to make this into an Afghan they can – or they can sub cotton and make dishcloths instead if they don’t want to – I will double check to see what we need to make this one work with worsted weight yarn – I think the cotton I used will cause a bit of a size discrepancy if one were to substitute worsted weight for it…

    Thank you for the idea 🙂

  8. Are all of the stitches we are going to learn going to be in 8″ squares so we can join them together in the future?
