GOING IN CIRCLES # 10

HEY THERE & HOW ARE Y'ALL DOING?

I HAD A LITTLE PROBLEM DESIGNING THIS DISHCLOTH.
 REMEMBER WHEN I SAID THAT I WAS USING ALL MY SCRAP YARN.
 WELL MY KITTY CAT NAMED SLICK GOT HOLD OF MY BALL OF YARN THAT I WAS USING, WHEN I WASN'T LOOKING & BOY WHAT A RATS NEST HE MADE FOR ME. LOL
IT TOOK ME ALL AFTERNOON TO UNTANGLE THE MESS & TRYING AT THE SAME TIME NOT TO UNRAVEL WHAT I HAD ALREADY CROCHETED.
FINALLY AFTER HOURS LATER, I GOT TO FINISH MY DESIGN.

MATERIALS THAT YOU WILL NEED:

SMALL AMOUNT OF YARN( I USED RED HEART WORSTED WEIGHT VARIEGATED)
CROCHET HOOK- I

COPYRIGHT BY DENISE G

ROW 1
CHAIN 6, SLIP STITCH IN FIRST CHAIN TO FORM A CIRCLE
CHAIN 2, ( WHICH EQUALS 1 DOUBLE CROCHET THROUGHOUT)
DO 2 MORE DC IN CENTER OF CIRCLE, CONTINUE WITH 10 DC IN CIRCLE, THEN SLIP STITCH AT TOP OF CHAIN 2.( 12 )

ROW 2
CHAIN 2, THEN 2 DC IN BETWEEN 2 DC OF ROW 1, CONTINUE AROUND WITH 3 DC IN BETWEEN EACH 2 DC, SLIP STITCH IN TOP OF CHAIN 2 (36DC)

ROW 3
*CHAIN 3,SKIP NEXT DC, SINGLE CROCHET IN NEXT DC, REPEAT FROM * AROUND, SLIP STITCH IN BOTTOM OF CHAIN 3. (18 LOOPS)

ROW 4
DO 3 DC IN FIRST CHAIN 3, CONTINUE AROUND IN EACH CHAIN 3 LOOPS, SLIP STITCH IN TOP OF FIRST DC ( 54 DC)

ROW 5
REPEAT ROW 3 ( 27 LOOPS )

ROW 6
REPEAT ROW 4 (81 DC )

ROW 7

EDGING

FASTEN OFF (41 LOOPS )

NOW MAYBE YOU CAN UNDERSTAND WHY I AM CALLING THIS ONE GOING IN CIRCLES.
ENJOY!

JUST THINK ONLY 2 MORE DESIGNS TO GO, THEN I WILL LET YOU KNOW WHAT I WILL BE UP TO NEXT.
WHEN I POST # 11, I WILL GIVE YOU THE FIRST HINT OF WHAT I WILL BE DOING AFTER MY DISHCLOTH CHALLENGE IS ALL DONE.
SO CHECK BACK EACH DAY TO SEE WHAT I HAVE TO SAY.

MAY YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL & BLESSED DAY.
HUGS,
DEE
