The All Around Cloth

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 This little cloth also works as a coaster or face cloth.

Materials:
100% ww.Cotton yarn
G (4.mm) hook
1 Stitch Marker
Darning needle
Scissors
Stitches Used:
Single Crochet = Sc
Chain = Ch
Slip Stitch = Sl st
(Gauge isn’t important but samples made were 3.75” in dia.)
With Magic Loop, ch1, 6sc in ring – Do not join as all rounds are worked in a spiral. Use stitch marker to mark the first stitch of every new round and move marker up as rounds progress.

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.
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.
