too pretty ...

...for washing dishes?
i had some spare coloured commercial yarn hanging around
and thought i would use it up by crocheting these cute wash cloths

here's the very easy pattern

foundation chain 25 stitches, turn
treble into the 2nd stitch from hook
treble to the end, chain 2, turn
continue for 15 rows, taking care at each end to treble into the turning 2 chain
finish off work.

frilly edge
change to another colour, slip stitch into one corner of your work
*chain 3, (counts as one treble) treble 2 into same stitch
slip stitch into next stitch* continue from ** all the way around your wash cloth
slip stitch at end, tie of yarn and weave in ends.

do hope that all sounds clear...
it does in my head, but sometimes it's quite hard to write out a pattern so that everyone can understand it

you now have your own wash cloth or maybe use it for the dishes? or a little place mat

you get the idea

cotton or acrylic mix yarns work best as they wash better and are long lasting...for once my beloved pure wool doesn't really work as it mostly felts when using

they make sweet gifts too, make a trio and tie with string

have fun
