Thick Scallops Washcloth
An attractive washcloth pattern that’s embarrassingly easy to make.
While it may conjure up images of grandmothers, a hand-made washcloth can be a great gift. Washcloths and other items that are going to get wet should always be made out of cotton yarn. For this washcloth I recommend Lily Sugar ‘n’ Cream- it comes in a variety of colors and the Super Size balls will yeild three or so washcloths.
You will need worsted weight cotton yarn and an I hook.
1st row – Sc in second ch from hook, and * skip 2 ch. 5 dc in next ch. Skip two ch and make 1 sc in next ch. Repeat from * across.
2nd row – Ch 3 (counts as first dc.) Make 2 dc in first sc. * Make 1 dc in the center sc of the next scallop, and 5 dc in the next sc; repeat from * and end with 3 dc in the last sc.
3rd row – Ch 1, and make 1 sc in the first dc. * 5 dc in the next sc, and then 1 sc in the center dc of the next scallop; repeat from * and end with 1 sc in the top of the turning ch.
Repeat rows 2 and 3 for as long as you need to make your washcloth square. Once you have done that, sc in every st across the last row you have done. Then sl st your way around the washcloth to start the border. Dc in each st around, making sure to do (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) on the corners to make them square. I only used one row of dc but you can put as many as you like.
