This is an amazing technique that will get you crocheting corner to corner (c2c) in a whole new way! Plus you will get a super sweet wash cloth at the end of our practice time.
I love making wash cloths. They are a great way to practice new stitches and techniques and still have a useful project at the end. When I saw this corner to corner moss stitch, I knew I wanted to try it out.
It is such a neat stitch, and moss stitch is already one of my favorite stitches of all time. It also gives this neat little eyelet effect on the edges. If you’ve never tried it before, don’t be afraid to give it a go – I’ve got a full video tutorial for you below.
This pattern is super easy and all you need to know how to do is sc and chain. It’s also easy to customize because you can make it as large or small as you want – just keep increasing until it’s as large as you want, then start the decreasing.
The yarn I chose is one of my favorite cotton yarns – Lion Brand Yarn’s LB Collection Mako Cotton. It’s so super soft! I’ve used it for lots of different projects and am planning on making more with it.
The only thing I haven’t tried with it yet is throwing it in the the washing machine, so that will be something I do very soon! Right now I just hand wash mine and hang to dry and it’s done very well.
