Bark Sledge Stitch Washcloth

Ravelry: Bark Sledge Stitch Washcloth
Yarn: Pakucho 100% certified organic cotton, Color 025, Brown Vicuña

While I was in Yakima, Washington, I visited a cute little yarn shop there (Little Red Hen Yarns on Summitview) and found my favorite organic cotton yarn on sale and bought 3 skeins to bring home with me. With help from Ravelry, I found the perfect pattern for a highly textured crocheted washcloth on the Lion Brand site. While I don’t often visit the site due to the annoyance of having to register and log in to see the patterns, I discovered this morning that there’s a free iPhone/Touch app for Lion Brand that makes it easier to search for and use the patterns there. These were so quick to do and I’ll soon be able to replace all my well-loved washcloths.

    I am with you on the Lion Brand site, I can’t stand it! Glad you found an app for it.

  2. ooh, I’ve never seen this yarn before. I’ll have to keep an eye out for it. Looks lovely as does your work!

    What a pretty stitch pattern! You have reminded me that I have a small stash of cotton that was intended for dishcloths – I might make that my mindless summer holiday project!

    That is an awesome stitch pattern. It reminds me of the star stitch in knitting, which is kind of a PITA to make, but I imagine it goes so much easier with crochet!

  5. […] a pattern I’ve used before, but unfortunately, I misread the title of the pattern and incorrectly titled my blog post back then (July 2010). And, as I mentioned in my old blog post, there’s a Lion Brand app […]
