Thicket Cloth: Free Cloth Crochet Pattern in Three Sizes

I am so excited to announce the first post in a year-long monthly series: the Thicket Cloth crochet pattern! For each month of 2020, I will share one new stitch set designed into three different sizes of cloths; one small cloth, one medium cloth, and one large cloth. The small size is great for face washing, the medium is the size of an average washcloth, and the large will be great for a dish drying mat, dusting the blinds, a place mat at the kitchen table, or other household and kitchen tasks.

The Thicket Cloth

My goal for this new monthly series is for us to learn (or to get reacquainted with) a new stitch while making something useful at the same time. This month we are using the Thicket stitch, which is also commonly referred to as the Suzette stitch. This cloth pattern is definitely beginner friendly!

Each new cloth in the series will be published on the second Friday of the month, and will feature Dishie cotton yarn, my new favorite cotton!

Cloth sizes:

5.5″ x 5.5″ – great for a face cloth or for showering

11″ x 11″ – average washcloth size

18″ x 12″ – dish drying mat, place mat, dusting cloth etc.

Materials:

Dishie Cotton (Conch colorway pictured)
-approx. 33 yards for small
-approx. 130 yards for medium
-approx. 200 yards for large

In order to make all three of these cloths, I used just shy of two skeins of the Dishie cotton yarn.

Pattern Notes:

The chain at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
