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!

  1. What is the color of this specific yarn. Bernat doesn’t show anything variegated through the link you provide.
