HERE IT IS, THE LAST ONE # 12 THE TWISTED SPOKE WAGON WHEEL

HEY THERE EVERYONE,
WELL HERE IT FINALLY  # 12 & THE LAST ONE OF THE DISHCLOTH CHALLENGE.
I TOOK SOME SCRAPS OF YARN FROM MY STASH. I WANTED TO USE 2 DIFFERENT COLORS TOGETHER, SO I GRABBED A DK. GREEN & A GOLD. 
WHEN I GOT DONE DOING THE DESIGN, HONESTLY I REALLY DIDN'T  LIKE THE COLORS TOGETHER
ONE NICE THING THOUGH, NO MATTER WHAT COLORS YOU USE, USING  2 YARNS TOGETHER IT WILL LOOK AS IF IT TWISTS. WHICH CAN BE VERY NICE.
THEY REALLY AREN'T MY FAVORITE COLORS, BUT I ONLY HAD A LITTLE BIT LEFT & I THOUGHT THIS DESIGN WOULD BE A GOOD WAY TO USE THE YARN UP.
MAYBE, IN THE FUTURE I WILL TRY MY DESIGN AGAIN & USE 2 DIFFERENT COLORS THAT I REALLY LIKE.
I HOPE THERE IS SOMEONE OUT THERE THAT WILL TRY MY DESIGN & MAKE ONE IN THE COLORS THAT THEY LIKE. IT WOULD BE SO NICE TO SEE YOUR WORK.

SUPPLIES THAT I USED:
RED HEART WORSTED WEIGHT YARN COLORS DK. GREEN & GOLD(SMALL AMOUNT, I ACTUALLY HAD ONLY A FEW YARDS OF EACH)
G CROCHET HOOK

INSTRUCTIONS:
HOLDING BOTH STRANDS OF YARN TOGETHER, CHAIN 6, SLIP STITCH IN FIRST CHAIN TO FORM A CIRCLE.

ROW 1- CHAIN 4,(THIS IS YOUR FIRST TRIPLE CROCHET & THROUGHOUT) DO 7 TRIPLE CROCHETS IN CIRCLE, SLIP STITCH TO TOP OF CHAIN 4 (8 TRIPLE CROCHETS)

ROW 2-  SLIP STITCH OVER TO SPACE  BETWEEN CHAIN 4 & FIRST TRIPLE CROCHET OF PREVIOUS ROW.
CHAIN 4 & TRIPLE CROCHET IN SAME SPACE. CONTINUE AROUND DOING 2 TRIPLE CROCHET IN EACH SPACE AROUND, SLIP STITCH IN TOP OF CHAIN 4.

ROW 3-  REPEAT ROW 2

ROW 4- CHAIN 1, SINGLE CROCHET IN STITCH IN BACK LOOP ONLY AROUND, SLIP STITCH IN TOP OF CHAIN 1, FASTEN OFF GREEN YARN.

ROW 5- CHAIN 1, WITH GOLD YARN, REPEAT ROW 4, FASTEN OFF.

ROW 6- ATTACH GREEN YARN, SLIP STITCH IN SAME STITCH, CHAIN 1 & REPEAT ROW 4 ONE MORE TIME. SLIP STITCH IN TOP OF CHAIN 1 STITCH, FASTEN OFF.

YEY, YOUR DONE.
NOW WASN'T THAT EASY?
