For week 10, I designed a dish cloth using a stitch I have been playing with lately. I have named the stitch a “chunky hdc stitch“. This cloth works up quickly and has a nice look to it.
Pretty N Easy Dish Cloth
Cotton yarn in color of choice
I Crochet Hook
Yarn needle for weaving in ends
FHDC (foundation half double crochet): Click HERE for a tutorial on this stitch.
Chunky Hdc; Click HERE for a tutorial on this stitch or see description below.
YO twice, insert hook in designated st, pull up a loop, YO and pull through all loops on hook.
Tip: As you pull through the loops, pull through two, slightly rotate hook and pull through the other two loops. That will make it easier to get through the loops.
- With I hook and cotton yarn, create a fhdc of 20 sts. (20sts)
If preferred, start with a regular chain of 21 sts, sc in 2nd ch from hook and across. (20sts)
2 – 15. Ch 1, turn, chunky hdc in each st to end of row.
At this point, the cloth should be close to a square. Add more rows if needed.
- Ch 1, turn, chunky hdc in each st until one st remains, (hdc, 2 sc) in last st.
- Ch 1, do not turn. This step is worked around the outer edge of the entire cloth. Sc evenly along side of cloth, 3sc in corner, sc across bottom of cloth, 3sc in corner, sc evenly along side of cloth, 3sc in corner, sc across cloth, sl st to first st to join.
- Ch 1, sc, ch 1*, repeat to corner, 2sc in corner st, ch 1,, repeat to end of round, sl st to join.
Note: do not skip any sts as part of the repeat. The “ch 1” creates a little ripple to the edge.
Finish off and weave in ends.
I like using Peaches and Cream yarn for my scrubbies. It comes in large cones for approximately $8.00 and $2.00 for the small skeins.
Throughout the year I find myself needing a neat gift for random reasons. Scrubbies of any kind are great to have on hand for many occasions. SO, as part of my quest to work on gifts throughout the year I will be sharing a different scrubbie pattern each week throughout 2015.
All featured scrubbie patterns will be on the “DIY cleaning & Organizing” Board.
