Back To Basics Cotton Cloth

I love multi coloured yarn but I always struggle with finding the right stitch for it but the other day I realized that it doesn’t need a fancy stitch, simple single crochets really made the colours stand out. The Back to Basics Cotton Cloth is completely beginner friendly and only uses single crochet!

SUPPLIES

NOTES

  • Beginning chain does not count as a stitch
  • I used a 6 mm hook to make my cotton cloths because I like my tension a little looser but you’re welcome to use a smaller hook if you prefer

ABBREVIATIONS

  • ch – Chain
  • sc – Single Crchet

DIMENSIONS

My cloths measure approximately 8 inches square.

PATTERN

Chain 25

ROW 1

  • sc in the second ch from the hook and each ch across
  • ch 1, turn (24 stitches)

ROW 2 – 27

  • sc in each stitch across
  • ch 1, turn (24 stitches)

*I like my cloths square so I repeated Row 2 until it was square, which for me was 27 rows, this may be different for you so repeat Row 2 until your cloth is square.

Fasten off and weave in ends!

OPTIONAL BORDER

I liked the look of the raw edges on my cloths but if you prefer add a border continue with the instructions below:

Turn your cloth clockwise and sc down the side, placing an sc at the end of each row, place 2 sc in the corner stitch. Continue to sc around the remaining 3 sides, placing 2 sc in each corner, slst to beginning sc. Fasten off and weave in ends!
