Many villages around the coasts of many countries evolved their own individual variations and this ZigZag Stitch dishcloth pattern is one such variation. Knit and Purl patterns were traditionally used by the women of seafaring villages to decorate the sweaters worn by the local fishermen.

I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.
