Country Tweed Dishcloths
Copyright 2011 Melissa R. Green

Size H hook
approx 1 oz 100% cotton
Size 10 thread

Gauge is not important. Use the size hook needed to reach desired size.
I used an H hook and made mind 7 1/2 inches square.

Holding 1 strand of WW cotton and 1 strand of size 10 thread together:

Row 1-Ch 28, sc in 2nd ch from hook, ch 1 sk 1 ch, sc in next ch, rep across, ending with a sc in last ch.

Row 2-Turn, ch 1, sc in first sc, (sc in next ch 1 sp, ch 1, sk 1 sc, sc in next ch 1 sp,) across,  ending with a sc in last sc

Row 3- Turn, ch 1, sc in first sc, ch 1, sc next sc , sc in next ch 1 sp,( ch 1, sc in next ch 1 sp) across, sc in last sc.

Rep rows 2 and 3 untill dishcloth reaches desired size.

At end of last row ch 1, do not turn, working down first side, 3 sc in 1st st (makes corner) sc evenly across, to last st, 3 sc in last st, sc evenly across bottom of dishcloth, placing 3 sts in last st, sc evenly in sts up the side of the dishcloth, placing 3 stitches in last st, sc evenl;y across top. Before joining with beg sc, ch 10, sl st into first ch to create a hanging loop, join in beg sc.

Finish off , weave in all ends.
