Border
Single crochet evenly around the washcloth, work 3 sc in the corner, then sc along the side of the washcloth until the bottom corner is reached, 3 sc in corner, sc across the bottom of the washcloth until the next corner is reached, 3 sc in corner, sc up along the other side of the washcloth until the top corner is reached, 3 sc in corner, sc across the top of the washcloth. Slip stitch into the first single crochet on the border to join. Finish off.

    Does the first single crochet stitch after turning go into the base of the single crochet after turning? Also does the single crochet at the end before turning count as a stitch? I hope this makes sense.

    • Rachel Choi says:

      Hello! The first sc on row 2 will go into the first single crochet on the row (the last one you made on row 1). The row will end with a double crochet stitch, since you are alternating from single and double crochet.

    • Rachel Choi says:

      The row will end with a double crochet stitch, since you are alternating from single and double crochet. Sc, dc, sc, dc, sc, dc, etc. Don’t skip any stitches or accidently add additional stitches.

    I just can’t get the count to turn out to 24 stitches………do you end each row with a double crochet. Then 1 single crochet turn?

    Please help…………….

  4. DiEtta says:

    Is it correct that you start in second change from hook?

  5. DiEtta says:

    Are the stitches exactly the same in each row. Example: single crochet on top of each other. Double crochet on top of each other. In other words each row is exactly the same pattern?

    I want to thank you Rachel. I finally figured it out. I think my brain was not working. This is such an elegant looking pattern. I am going to make a spa set for my granddaughters for Christmas and include a nice robe. Again, thank you for all your help. I love your blog and it’s so nice to offer your patterns for free.
