Hi there,

Today I wanted to share my Moss Stitch / Seed Stitch Dishcloth free knitting pattern.

Seed stitch is my favorite pattern for washcloths, since it combines an extra absorbent texture with a great scrubbie power. Plus is very easy to make!!

So, if you’re a knitter in search of an easy and quick project, either for yourself or to make some wonderful gifts, this is for you!

♥ FINISHED MEASUREMENTS

8.75’’ (22.5 cm) square

You can easily modify these measures.

♥ MATERIALS

– 1 straight needle US 8 (5 mm) for Cast on and Bind Off

– 1 pair of straight needles US 7 (4.5 mm)

– Approx. 110 yd (100 m) of Worsted / Aran yarn.

– Tapestry needle to loose yarn ends and scissors.

– OPTIONAL: stitch markers.

♥ GAUGE

18.5 sts x 25 rows in stocking st with US 7 (4.5 mm) needles = 4” x 4” (10 cm x 10 cm)

(Although gauge is not very important in this project…)

♥ ABBREVIATIONS

CO: cast on

St: stitch

P: purl

K: knit

♥ INSTRUCTIONS

– CO 40 sts with US 8 (5 mm) needles.

I always cast on and bind off stitches with larger needles than I use for the main work. This prevent my cast on and bind off rows from being too tight.

– With US 7 (4.5 mm) needles knit 6 rows (Garter Stitch preparation rows).

Slip first stitch on every row as if you were to knit it, but without knitting it (except on the first row). It will form a nicer border.

– Work (5 garter st, 30 seed sts, 5 garter st) each row, until you reach the desired length for your washcloth.

Seed Stitch

Seed stitch consists of single knits and purls that alternate horizontally and vertically.

Row 1) * k1, p1 ** Repeat from * to ** until the end of row.

Row 2) * p1, k1 ** Repeat from * to ** until the end of row.

Repeat these 2 rows.

– Knit 6 rows (Garter Stitch ending rows).

– Bind Off with US 8 (5 mm) needles.

– Cut yarn and loose ends with tapestry needle.

I hope you enjoy the pattern, and…

HAPPY KNITTING!!

  1. I’m a new knitter. Could you please explain what a garter stitch is? Thanks!!

    • Hello Shannon! In Garter stitch you KNIT every row (no purl). I hope you enjoy knitting!

  2. Hi! I love this pattern. One question – If you’re slipping the first stitch in each row would you then do 4 garter stitches, 30 seed stitches, 5 garter stitches? Just making sure I do this right.

    • Hello Deborah! You’re right, the slipped stitch counts as the first garter stitch.
      Happy knitting 🙂

      • Celia, THANK YOU so much for your quick reply! Sending you a patreon donation. 💕
