One thing I really enjoy about crocheting is combining different stitches to create pretty texture and eye catching designs. The Beautiful Waistcoat Washcloth uses two stitches, the waistcoat stitch and the even moss stitch to create a lovely little project. For those that need a refresher I have included a quick tutorial for each within the pattern. There’s also links to more thorough walk-thoughs if you’re learning these stitches for the first time.

About This Pattern:
The Beautiful Waistcoat Washcloth is a wonderful way to expand on the basic stitches. The even moss stitch uses the slip stitch and half double crochet. The waistcoat stitch is a variation of the single crochet stitch. On their own they create a lovely and unique texture and combined, make a gorgeous and eye catching design. If you’d like to learn more about those stitches, check out my tutorials below:
Gauge is not terribly important in this pattern but to give you an idea of sizing, using the materials mentioned below, the finished project measures approximately 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches.
This would be a fabulous pattern to make for gift giving and market prep because they work up so quickly and look beautiful. You could even make a set in coordinating colours!
