Quick and Classy Washcloth



Quick and Classy Washcloth Editor's Note: This is a close up of a portion of Janice's washcloth. I used a finger weight variegated sock thread and a 3/2 cotton. At yarn stores, you can buy as much of the 3/2 cotton as you want or buy an entire spool through mail order.

Pattern Notes: Though these washcloths are made with Cotton Rug Warp, they can be made with a variety of different fibers. For instance, two strands of Cotton #10, Cotton 4-ply yarn, or Southmaid cotton 8 would also work. You just need to adjust the hook size and the foundation row.

Stitch Guide:
Treble Spike Stitch: Wrap thread around hook twice, then insert hook in row stitch below working row. Pull up loop to height of working row. Thread over and complete as normal treble crochet.
The turning Ch 2 does not count as the first stitch of the following row
To change colors, pull through new color on last loop of preceding stitch. Don't fasten off unused color. Just let the thread drop to the side as you'll pick it up again in two rows.
