All Around Cloths

I went camping a few weeks ago and realized I didn’t bring any washcloths or scrubbies to wash the small pans we used to cook with, so while hubby was fishing, I was sitting with him in the boat working up this fast and easy crocheted washcloth.  Nothing like designing on the fly huh…LOL

Dishcloth

100% ww.Cotton yarn
G (4.mm) hook
1 Stitch Marker
Darning needle
Scissors
With Magic Loop, ch1, 6sc in ring – Do not join.  Use stitch marker to mark the first stitch of every new round.
1) 2sc in ea stitch around, – 12
2) 1 sc in first st, 2 sc in next st, * 1sc in next st, 2 sc in next st: around *-  18
3) 1 sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st, * 1sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc n next st around:* – 24
4) 1 sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st, * 1 sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st around;* – 30
5) 1 sc in next 4 sts, 2 sc in next st, * 1 sc in next 4 sts, 2 sc in next st around;* – 36
6) 1 sc in next 5 sts, 2 sc in next st, * 1 sc in next 5 sts, 2 sc in next st around; * – 42
7) 1 sc in next 6 sts, 2 sc in next st, * 1 sc in next 6 sts, 2 sc in next st around; * – 48
8) 1 slip stitch in ea of the next 7 sts, (sl st – ch1- sl st) in next st, *1 sl st in the next 7 (sts, sl st – ch1- sl st) in next st. around* – 54 slip stitches, 6 ch1 spaces.
End off by slip stitching in the first marked st.  Weave in all 2 tails.
This little cloth also works as a coaster or face cloth.  If you want to make it a bit larger, increase the next rounds accordingly then end by working round 8 according to the increased rounds..  If you need help increasing more rounds, let me know and I’ll help you with it.
Coaster

Facecloths
We’re going fishing tomorrow, so I plan to create a knitted version.  I’ll let you know how it went and post the pattern for you.

  1. Awesome! When we went camping last weekend, we forgot a pot holder so I cranked one out while my husband was fishing!
