This crochet dishcloth apparently is a stitch combo called the Even Moss Stitch. Now when creating this, I had no idea it was called that :/ I just have been playing around with The Complete Photo Guide to Crochet Book I had gotten, and it just said it was a half double crochet and slip stitch.
But when looking for something to call this crochet dishcloth pattern I found out this stitch combo has a name! The Even Moss Stitch. So I guess I’ll call it by it’s stitch name, the Even Moss Stitch Crochet Dishcloth.

Very nice pattern. Thank you!
It’s very pretty. I can’t stop touching the textures.
You’ll also see it as the Crunch Stitch 😊
Hello! I simply wish to give a huge thumbs up for the nice crochet pattern have here. I will be coming again to your blog for more soon.
I’ve made two of these. I really like them. Going to start a third. Do you think it could be used as a face cloth?
Laura, I’m sure it could be used as a face cloth. Glad you like it 🙂
I love this pattern!!! I’ve made 2 already and a kitchen dish towel. I love giving away what I make, lol. I rarely keep things for myself. Thank you for sharing!
What size hook did you use ? I have G & H but neither say 4.5? She said size 7 ?? Can you share what size you used ?
The 4.5mm hook doesn’t have a letter. Instead, it’s labeled 7. You can reference this chart for crochet hook sizes: https://crochetpenguin.com/crochet-hook-sizes/
I also started the 1st sc row in the back bump, it gives it a nice finished look when completed. Thanks again
Pattern worked through both loops or front or back loop? Mine doesn’t look like yours.
Through both loops.
I really liked the pattern. I don’t have the size hook you used. I ended up using an 8 or 5.00mm. The dimensions are much bigger than dishcloths that I usually make. What are the dimensions using the 4.5.?
Mine is measuring 8.5 inches long by 8 inches wide
I wish there was a way to download your patterns into a printable version. I’m not always somewhere where there is a wifi connection, like in a waiting room or a passenger in a car. Too bad because I like your patterns but can’t use them without an internet connection.
I understand. This is something that is on the list of things to get done. I’m hoping by summer to get an Etsy store going with the PDF patterns available.
These washcloths are about the coolest washcloths I have ever seen they’re the real thing
I’m so glad you like them!
I am so in love with this pattern😍 I searched endlessly for the perfect pattern to make a dishcloth with for my daughter and now I’m going to try and downsize the pattern a bit to make a mug rug! Props to you for such a beautiful pattern and thank you for sharing🥰
