The Granule Stitch is a neat textured crochet stitch that creates little nubs on one side of your fabric and a solid flat back on the reverse side of your fabric. I love the bumpy texture it creates!

For this month’s Washcloth of the Month Club project I used 1 ball of Big Value Recycled Dishcloth Cotton that was sent to me King Cole Yarn and a 4 mm (G) crochet hook. This yarn is a blend of 85% Cotton and 15% Polyester. Each 100 g ball contains approximately 175 yards (160 meters). You will need one ball of this yarn for today’s project.

Notes:

  • Stitch multiple of 2 + 2
  • The final ch 1(turning chain) of the row does not count as a stitch
  • When I work into the foundation chain, I prefer working into the back bar (back bump) of the chain. You can work under the back loop only if you prefer.
  • For the video tutorial I used a 4 mm (G) crochet hook and the gauge using the smaller hook is approximately 18 sts per 4 inches and 16 rows per 4 inches. If you use a 4 mm (G) your washcloth will measure approximately 9 inches wide.
