Trinity Stitch Dishcloths – Free Pattern in 3 sizes

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission.
Here’s how it works.

The trinity stitch has a lovely star like appearance and creates a fairly dense finished fabric. This stitch looks beautiful when used for baby blankets and scarves and also makes great dishcloths and washcloths. The fabric holds together nicely due to the way the trinity stitch is created making it quite durable.
