Close up of stitch and Clickable
I used Patons BumbleBee Baby Cotton in Petunia(I know it's discontinued, but I purchased it off of eBay-you could use Sugar N Cream SPORTSWEIGHT or any sportsweight 100% cotton or 100% baby cotton)
Stitches used: Ch, sc and dc-this is a variation of a sedge stitch
Patons BumbleBee Cotton-50 gram skein/123 yards-I used 1/2 a skein for this, so 1 skein makes two cloths-see above for substitutions.
Size F crochet hook (4 mm)
Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
Finished size is 6 1/2" x 6 1/2"
Row 1: Sc in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across-ch 1 (counts as sc for next row) and turn
Row 2: Dc in first sc (same stitch as ch 1 from previous row) *sk 1 sc, sc and dc(both in same stitch) in next st* repeat across and end with 1 sc in last sc, ch 1 and turn.
Rows 3-22: Dc in first sc (same stitch as ch 1 from previous row)*skip next dc, sc and dc (both in same stitch) in next sc* repeat across and end with sc in turning ch, ch 1 turn (keep repeating until it measures approx 6 1/4" from start or near a perfect square and then do last row-depending on how you crochet, you may end up doing 23 rows or more-6 1/4" from start is the key)
Last row: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each chain across, ending with 2 sc in last st.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
The sc row at the beginning and end works as a nice edging.
