How to crochet spike stitches in a dishcloth!

Modern designs are a must-have for me when I am designing. I try to always create my patterns with clean stitches, simple lines, and neutral colors.

This spike stitch dishcloth pattern, which happens to be available in two sizes is no exception to the rule. I hope you like it!

About The Spike Stitch

A spike stitch is created by inserting the hook one or more rows below the current row. You can find a tutorial featuring the single crochet spike stitch here on the blog.

For this particular pattern, I decided to use a herringbone half double crochet or HHDC abbreviated instead of the traditional single crochet that is usually used in a spike stitch.

The HHDC Spike Stitch

To work an HHDC spike stitch, yarn over the hook, insert the hook into the stitch indicated in the pattern below (or whatever pattern you are following), pull the yarn back through one loop, yarn over then pull through two loops.

You can find a video tutorial here (coming soon) for reference if needed.

The Yarn

I love a good deal, and this yarn is just that! Lion Brand’s Re-Up yarn is a recycled partial cotton yarn that is great for the environment and also happens to have only a $1.99 retail price!

The other great thing about this yarn is that it is available in some great colors. For this dishcloth design, I used the colorways Ecru and Grey because I wanted neutrals, but I’d love to see these made in some different colors too!

If you can’t find this yarn Yarnspirations Lily Sugar and Cream Cotton yarn would work great too!
