April Stitch of The Month - Alpine Stitch Washcloth | Posh Pooch Designs

 April Stitch of The Month -  
Alpine Stitch Washcloth
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs 


The Alpine Stitch is  stitched using Front Post Double 
Crochet Stitches in a alternating Pattern. It makes a thick
 textured pattern that makes a wonderful washcloth.
 It can also be used for hats, scarves, bags, blankets, 
ponchos and much more projects.

You can use any weight of yarn and any crochet hook to
 stitch up the alpine Stitch Pattern. We are using cotton
 yarn from Premier Yarns and an I . 5.50 mm size crochet
 hook, because we are going to make a washcloth for
 Our practice project.



I Love The Alpine Stitch Pattern For This Washcloth. 
It has a textured side that is perfect for washing dishes, 
and can also be used as a regular washcloth. And it 
is not too harsh for a face cloth.
