Lately, dishcloths have been the object of my time and attention. It has become my work week project. A few rows here and there gives me creative expression and fulfillment throughout the week and in just a few days, I have lovely dishcloths made from tidbits of time.
I used Sugar 'n Cream cotton yarn to create these natural, soft and absorbent dishcloths. The pattern is made using the Trinity Stitch. It requires very little in terms of crochet knowledge and experience. If you know how to “Chain” and “Single Crochet”, this is the project for you.
1 Skein 100% Cotton Sugar ‘n Cream Yarn
“H” Crochet Hook
1 Yarn Needle
9 ½” x 9 ½”
Ch = Chain
SC = Single Crochet
YO = Yarn Over
Trinity Stitch: (Worked over 3 stitches) Draw up a loop in same stitch previously worked in. (Draw up a loop in next stitch) 2 times. YO and draw through all 4 loops on hook.
Row 1: Skip 1st Ch, SC in 2nd Ch from hook. In same stitch, begin Trinity Stitch (see above). *Ch 1, Trinity Stitch*, repeating from * to * throughout row. SC in same stitch (last Ch). Ch 1, turn.
Row 2: SC in first SC (last SC in previous row). In same stitch, begin Trinity Stitch. *Ch 1, Trinity Stitch*, repeating from * to * throughout row. SC in same stitch (last SC). Ch 1, turn.
Repeat Row 2 for a total of 31 rows.
Finish off and weave in ends with yarn needle.
You may adjust the size by decreasing or increasing the beginning chain by removing or adding in multiples of 2 chains.
