This is an easy to memorize crochet stitch pattern that gives a pretty dishcloth/washcloth.
Measurements: 8 1.2″ x 6 3/4″
Yarn: worsted weight cotton
Gauge: Not really important, my gauge was 2 st repeats per inch
Loosely chain 32 (I like to use an I hook for the foundation chain to ensure the cloth lays flat)
Row 1: (hdc, ch1, hdc) in 4th ch from hook *skip next ch, (hdc, ch1, hdc) in next ch*, repeat to last 2 ch, skip 1 ch, hdc into last ch, turn.
Row 2: ch2, *skip 2sts, (hdc, ch1, hdc) in next ch sp*, repeat to last hdc, skip 1 st, hdc into tch, turn.
Repeat row 2 until cloth measures 6 3/4″ or desired height.
ch – chain
ch sp – chain space
hdc – half double crochet
st/sts – stitch/stitches
tch – turning chain
