New pattern release: Spike Stripe Washcloth (crochet)

The Spike Stripes Washcloth is a great way to practice the crochet spike stitch.  This crochet stitch is a double crochet (or treble in UK terminology) into the previous row of stitches. It’s what creates the “spike”.

In the washcloth pattern, you will be using two colors to make the stitch definitions pop!

You can make this in any two colors of cotton yarn you prefer, but it’s best if at least one of the colors is a solid. I really like the pink version with it’s variegated coloring!

As a bonus, even the back of this Spike Stripe Washcloth looks good. (I think it looks like cats!)
