The crunch stitch is a great stitch for a beginner or a more confident crocheter. It has a fabulous but simple texture that would be great for anything from washcloths, to bags, to baskets and garments! It really is that versatile so is a great stitch to have in your stitch library!

To work up a crunch stitch washcloth you need:

ABBREVIATIONS:

Ch(s)–chain(s)
St(s)–stitch(es)
hdc–half double crochet
ss–slip stitch
sk—skip
*to* – repeat the Instructions between the two *

Row 1: Chain 31

Row 2:  slip stitch in third chain from hook (2ch at beginning count as a hdc), *hdc in next st, ss in next st. Repeat from *  until you complete the row. Note: you will end the row with a slip stitch.

Row 3: ch2 (counts as a hdc) , sk the first st, slip stitch in the next stitch (which will be the hdc from the previous row), *hdc in the next st (which will be the slip stitch from the previous row), slip stitch in the next st. Repeat from * until you complete the row

Row 4+: Repeat row 3 until your washcloth is as long as you would like it to be. Fasten off and sew in ends.

HANDY HINT:

Don’t work your slip stitches too tight. If you do it will make it difficult to work your hdc’s into them in the next row.
