This face cloth or dish cloth pattern is super quick and easy to work up. I can finish one in approximately 30 minutes. I made several of them just before posting this pattern and I am ready to make more today! It’s become an addiction =/
G-hook (size you choose will determine the final size of cloth)
Cotton Yarn – I used Peaches and Crème & Sugar’n Cream
Techniques Used in Pattern:
Sc – Single Crochet (insert hook into stitch, draw yarn back through, yarn over, draw through both loops on hook) *Working partial Sc Grit Stitch Pattern*
*Sc Grit stitch – work 1 sc into 1st stitch, skip next stitch, work 2 sc into next stitch, skip following stitch, 2 sc in next st, continue this pattern to end*
Hdc – Half Double Crochet (Yarn over, insert hook into stitch, draw yarn through, yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook.) *Working Hdc crossover*
*Hdc Crossover – Skip 1st stitch, work hdc into next stitch, go back & work hdc into skipped stitch before hdc just worked* (Video for Hdc Crossover)
Chain 28 + 1 (29 total chains)
- Work 1 sc into 2nd ch from hook, *skip next ch, 2 sc into next stitch*, repeat ** to end, you will have 1 ch left to work after your final 2 sc, work 1 sc into that last stitch.
- Chain 2, turn. Skip 1st stitch, work hdc into next st, cross back to skipped hdc and work hdc into that stitch, (Hdc Crossover technique explained above and in video.) *skip next stitch, work hdc into next st, cross back to skipped hdc and work hdc into that stitch* Repeat ** to end.
- Chain 2, turn. Repeat row 2 with Hdc Crossover.
- Chain 1, turn. Work 1 sc into 1st stitch, *skip next ch, work 2 sc into next stitch” repeat ** to end, you will have 1 ch left to work after your final 2 sc, work 1 sc into that last stitch.
- – 6. Chain 2, turn. Repeat row 2 with Hdc Crossover.
You will continue working the 1 row of Sc’s and then the 2 rows of Hdc Crossovers until you have reached you desired facecloth or dishcloth size.
You will have a total of 28 stitches per row following the pattern size above.
I like to finish this project with a row of the partial grit stitch (the Sc row).
Finish off, hide your tails and VOILA!
You could work a full grit stitch in between your Hdc Crossover rows. How you do this is you work another row of Sc’s (repeat row 4) after each row of sc’s.
That would be a total of 2 Sc rows then 2 Hdc rows repeating to end of pattern.
