{How to Crochet} Seed Stitch Plus A Free Pattern

Updated on March 3, 2013

Seed Stitch Crochet Dishcloth Pattern

Learning crochet is a great hobby and with a simple stitch like the seed stitch you'll be able to make a set of dish cloths while learning. A Dishcloth

is great for housewarming gifts, wedding gifts, college dorm gifts and as part of a gift basket.

For the following pattern you will need to know the half double crochet and the single crochet stitch. You'll need one ball of cotton yarn and a size 'I' crochet hook.

You can find more patterns by Squidoo Lensmasters at our Crochet With Mom on Squidoo Directory.

The Pattern: Seed Stitch Dish Cloth Pattern

1 I crochet hook

Tapestry needle to weave in ends

Ch 26

**Note** In the above Video Tutorial Teresa is using a Double Crochet and a Single Crochet for her Seed Stitch- I use a Half Double Crochet and Single Crochet in this pattern to make the fabric tighter.**

Just Starting Out? Learning crochet can be easy with Take an Online Crochet Class to learn the basics.

How To: Seed Stitch - Crochet Stitches Tutorial

For this pattern I altered it with the following:

1single crochet stitch and 1Half double crochet stitch,this makes a denser fabric for a lovely Dish cloth. Also, I do not work the two stitches in the same stitch -- 1sc in first stitch, 1hdc in next --

Hopefully, I haven't confused you too much.

      @SusannaDuffy: Yes it is, it is good for beginners to learn and gives a bit of dimension to the fabric.

      Well put together lens. Definitely liking this. Time to get my yarn and hooks out. Forgot how easy it was to crochet nice little gifts. Will have to get busy and add some of my crochet projects also. Big Thanks!

      @lesliesinclair: Awesome. Glad you were able to find what you were looking for. Tighter weave crochet fabric makes it so you can really reuse the dishcloths over and over again.

      This is what I've been looking for, as I view my collection of woven dishcloths with holes in the center of each one. thanks!

      Fabulous! One of the first things I ever crocheted was a dish cloth for my mother! I had totally forgotten this fast and simple project. Angel Blessed

      @Virginia Allain: I will put that on my squidoo topics list. Are you speaking of the kitchen towel tops or just the little loop on the end of the dish cloth so you can hang it? I see it might be the kitchen towel top you are referring to - Craftyville has a lens that has a video tutorial for this Hope that helps.

      How about a pattern for crocheting the loop to hang a dish towel in the kitchen. I've seen these and they usually fasten with a button.

      @TapIn2U: It really isn't. It is only two stitches - single crochet and half double [you could also do a double crochet] and that is it. Repeat throughout the entire piece. Hope you find the time to learn - thanks for stopping by.

      This looks complicated to do but the finish product looks great! I wish can do it, too! Have to watch the video a couple more times. Fantastic lens! Sundae ;-)

      @marsha32: Maybe you should start one? Squidoo always has room for more lensmasters - especially ones who are crafty with yarn

      looks just about like the pattern that I use to crochet the ones I make.

      I don't have any lenses that are dedicated to just crochet--darn it.
