When I finished the first one, my daughter asked to use the new "washcloth" in her bath. Huh, what do you know, 2 projects in one! I am going to make some cute girly colored ones for her and some more boyish colors for my son.
The finished size is approx 7 inches. You can easily make this as large as you would like. Just keep increasing the number of stitches (by 1) between your increases, for each additional row.
What you will need:
Worsted cotton yarn. I used Sugar and Cream
Stitch marker (you can use a scrap piece of yarn, or if you are good at keeping your count, not use one at all)
Hdc-half double crochet
For rounds 2-? Place your stitch marker in the first stitch of each round. (I left a long tail from my magic circle and placed that in my first stitch of each round)
Start with Magic circle. (or you can ch 2 and work in the second ch from the hook)
Round 1: ch 1, 10 hdc into circle. Join with first hdc. (10hdc)
You will be working in the 3rd loop of each stitch for the rest of the rounds.
The third loop is located just behind the second loop of the stitch.
Round 2: ch 1, 2 hdc in each st around. Do not join your rounds from here on out. (20 hdc)
Round 3: ch 1, *2 hdc in first st, 1 hdc in next st*. Repeat around. (30 hdc)
Round 4: ch 1, *2 hdc in first st, 1 hdc in next 2 st’s*. Repeat around. (40 hdc)
Round 5: ch 1, *2 hdc in first st, 1 hdc in next 3 st’s*. Repeat around. (50 hdc)
Round 6: ch 1, *2 hdc in first st, 1 hdc in next 4 st’s*. Repeat around. (60 hdc)
Round 7: ch 1, *2 hdc in first st, 1 hdc in next 5 st’s*. Repeat around. (70 hdc)
Round 8: ch 1, *2 hdc in first st, 1 hdc in next 6 st’s*. Repeat around. (80 hdc)
Round 9: ch 1, *2 hdc in first st, 1 hdc in next 7 st’s*. Repeat around. (90 hdc)
To finish: 1 sc into next 2 st’s, 1 sl st into next 2 st‘s. Fasten off.
Pull your magic circle closed and secure it.
Weave in ends.
