Awhile back, I added this stitch pattern to our picture gallery of crochet stitches. This design is based on three different stitches: the puff stitch, the half double crochet, and the v stitch.

I'm using this stitch pattern for a few projects I already have in the works: first of all, a dishcloth.

I like dishcloths because they offer a low-commitment way to test out new stitch patterns. If you were going to crochet a swatch anyway, you might as well get something useful out of the deal, right? So instead of crocheting swatches, whenever possible I make dishcloths.

But since a dishcloth isn't the most exciting thing that I can think of to do with this stitch, I'm also envisioning a shawl or scarf as well. I think this is a great stitch pattern to use for either of those purposes, because the laciness of the design is nice, and also because the front and the back of the stitch pattern look the same.

If you have suggestions for projects you'd like to see made up using this stitch, I'd love to hear 'em. The floor is open for comments! And I'd love to see what y'all will make with this stitch as well. I hope you'll enjoy adding it to your stitch library, and incorporating it into your own projects.

I think it would make a beautiful shawl. I can also see it as a window valance. Maybe matching cafe curtains.
