Hello everyone. Exciting stuff, today I'm posting my first ever crochet pattern. Dishcloths might seem like a bit of a weird thing to make but trust me these things are amazing. They're made with dishcloth cotton which is really absorbent. They can also be bleached and used again, one will last you a few years. I sell things that I crochet to friends and family and I swear I can't make these fast enough to keep up with the demand.
You will need:
100g of dishcloth or craft cotton
A 5mm(size H) crochet hook
A needle for sewing in your ends.
I buy my craft cotton on Ebay here. Because I make and sell these it's beneficial for me to buy them in bulk. You can buy an individual 100g ball here but the shipping is quite expensive. I'd recommend checking out a local craft store before ordering it online to see if you can get it cheaper. One 100g ball will make 3 dishcloths.
Step 1: Create a slipknot on your hook and chain 25.
Step 2: Double crochet into the fourth chain from the hook.
Step 3: Double crochet into every chain until you reach the end of the row.
Step 4: Chain two.
Step 5: Turn your work and double crochet into every stitch until the end of the row. Repeat this until you have 15 rows of double crochet.
Step 6: Cut your cotton and cast off.
Step 7: Sew in your ends and your dishcloth is complete.
And there you go! Would you be interested in seeing more crochet related blog posts? I've considered doing a post on how to do the basics like chain, single crochet, double crochet and half double crochet etc etc. Would you like to see that? Let me know!
