Introducing the

“Ridges Around Dish/Wash Cloth”

This textured cloth will work great as a Dishcloth or a Washcloth. It’s great texture comes from Front Post stitches with Back-Bar & Third Loop Only techniques.





Finished Size:

~7” or 9” square



Materials:

▸Yarn: 100% cotton ▸Yardage: 110-120yds ▸Hook: 5.0mm ▸Scissors ▸Darning Needle ▸Stitch Markers



Stitches & Abbreviations:

US Terminology ▸* * – Repeat stitch pattern between * ▸Ch# – Chain the number noted ▸St/Sts – Stitch/Stitches ▸SS – Slip Stitch ▸SC – Single Crochet ▸HDC – Half Double Crochet ▸DC – Double Crochet ▸FPDC – Front Post Double Crochet NOTE: Be sure to pull up the loop to the height of your DC. ▸ Back Bar Insert hook into the back bar (single horizontal bar found under the normal stitch area) of the DC from the previous round. The “Back BAR” is also known as the third loop of a DC. Annie’s Catalog Tutorial ▸ TLO – Third Loop Only of HDC (3 rd loop is sometimes referred to as ‘back bump’ or ‘back bar’) Moogly Tutorial

Notes & Special Instructions:

▸ Each round will end with a “Ch1, SC in 1st st of Rnd.” It will position you to start the 1 st half of the corner for the next round. ▸ Don’t miss the 1 st st after each corner. It gets crowded out & can be hard to see/find. ▸ This pattern is worked in ROUNDS. Do NOT turn throughout entire pattern. ▸ Ch 1 at beginning of the round does NOT count as a stitch. ▸ Number of stitches per side & total round count are in (#) at end of each round. ▸ I tend to crochet TIGHT, so you may need to adjust your hook size to accommodate. Gauge is not critical. ▸ I prefer to use the Chainless Beginning DC at the beginning of DC rows/rounds. I use this same technique for beginning FPDC & BPDC. Therefore, t here will be NO Chain instructions on those rows. The first stitch in these rows/rounds will be noted as a regular DC/FPDC/BPDC. Use the method you prefer for the 1 st stitch of these rows/rounds. Moogly Video Tutorial for the Chainless Beginning DC stitch ▸ I suggest using the invisible join for a seamless look.
