DISHCLOTH CHALLENGE # 3

HELLO TO MY FRIENDS & FOLLOWERS.

THIS IS DAY 3 OF THE DISHCLOTH CHALLENGE & I WAS TRYING TO DESIGN AN INTERESTING STITCH FOR DISHCLOTH #3, I CALL THIS ONE TWIST & SCRUB

SO HERE IS THE PIC & INSTRUCTIONS TO MAKE IT.  
COPYRIGHT BY DENISE G.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED
SMALL AMOUNT OF YARN- FOR MAIN COLOR & ALSO A CONTRAST COLOR FOR EDGING. I USED RED HEART WORSTED WEIGHT ( SCRAP YARN FROM MY STASH)
CROCHET HOOK = SIZE G
(SC=SINGLE CROCHET)  (DC=DOUBLE CROCHET) (TWIST DC=DOUBLE CROCHET AROUND DC POST OF PREVIOUS ROW) ( CHAIN 2= A DC)
THIS IS AN EASY DESIGN, BUT DIFFERENT

ROW 1- CHAIN 25, TURN, THEN SC IN 2ND CHAIN FROM HOOK ACROSS (24 SC)

ROW 2- CHAIN 2, TURN, THEN DC IN 2ND CHAIN FROM HOOK ACROSS (24 DC)

ROW 3-  CHAIN 2, TURN, THEN DO A TWIST DC AROUND POST OF 2ND DC FROM HOOK OF PREVIOUS ROW ACROSS TO CHAIN 2, YOU WILL DO A TWIST DC AROUND THE CHAIN- YOU WILL HAVE 24 TWIST DC INCLUDING CHAIN 2

ROW 4-18- CHAIN 2 & REPEAT ROW 3
AT THE END OF ROW 18, DO NOT FASTEN OF

EDGING;
CHAIN 1 & TURN, THEN SC IN FIRST SC ACROSS TO THE CORNER. DO 2 SC IN CORNER STITCH, THEN WORKING DOWN SIDE, SC EVENLY TO NEXT CORNER AT BOTTOM & DO 2 SC IN CORNER STITCH.

THEN SC ACROSS TO NEXT CORNER AT BOTTOM & PUTTING 2 SC IN CORNER STITCH.
CONTINUE UP ALONG SIDE WITH SC EVENLY  TO FIRST SC, ENDING WITH 2 SC IN CORNER STITCH. THEN SLIP STITCH & FASTEN OFF.

ATTACH CONTRASTING COLOR IN TOP CORNER STITCH WITH A SLIP STITCH.

CHAIN 1, THEN SC IN SLIP STITCH & SC ACROSS TOP TO CORNER STITCH, DOING 2 SC IN CORNER STITCH, CONTINUE DOWN SIDE SC EVENLY TO BOTTOM CORNER WITH 2 SC. THEN SC ACROSS BOTTOM TO NEXT CORNER, WITH 2 SC. THEN WORKING UP SIDE WITH SC EVENLY TO TOP CORNER, ENDING WITH 2 SC IN FIRST CORNER STITCH.

CHAIN 2, DO NOT TURN, SKIP FIRST SC, THEN SC IN NEXT SC.
*CHAIN 2, SKIP SC & SC IN NEXT SC, REPEAT FROM * CONTINUE AROUND ALL SIDES & WHEN YOU GET BACK TO FIRST SC STITCH, SLIP STITCH IN SC & FASTEN OFF.

WEAVE IN ALL LOOSE ENDS. NOW WASN'T THAT FUN?

THIS IS A GREAT DISHCLOTH FOR SCRUBBING, SINCE BOTH SIDES HAVE RIDGES.

HOPE YOU WILL TRY THIS ONE, IF NOT PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT

IF YOU ARE CONFUSED ABOUT ANY OF MY INSTRUCTIONS, PLEASE LEAVE ME A COMMENT & I WILL EXPLAIN IN MORE DETAIL.

HOPE Y'ALL HAD A WONDERFUL & BLESSED DAY.

HUGS,
DEE
