This is a great little project while sitting in front of the television in the evening. I’ve made as many as 3 in one sitting. And I’ve also had nights where I spent alot of time ripping out what I had done incorrectly!
WICKED EASY DISHCLOTH (OR FACECLOTH)
Crochet hook size H (gauge is not terribly important)
This pattern uses a half double crochet (hdc) and to make a half double crochet:
(yarn over, insert hook in chain, yarn over pull through one loop, yarn over and pull through all 3 loops)
About an ounce of cotton Sugar ‘N Cream or Bernat Handicrafter cotton
2) 1 hdc in 2nd chain from hook and in each stitch across
3) Chain 2 (counts as first hdc in next row) and turn — 25 stitches
4) Work 1 hdc in each stitch across and in top chain of chain 2.
5) Ch 2 and turn
Repeat steps 4 and 5 until cloth is desired size. Mine work out to be about 8 – 8.5″ square
To finish, work slip stitches around three sides of the cloth, cut yarn and weave in the end.
Done!!! Told you it was wicked easy, eh?
