Today’s tutorial is all about the Farmhouse Dishcloth, using the paired single crochet method.
The paired single crochet is also often called “interlocking single crochet” and is done by crocheting twice into each stitch.
To start this dishcloth, you will need 100% cotton yarn that is ideal for kitchen-wares, such as Lily Sugar N Cream. This is a medium/worsted weight yarn that is quite sturdy and easy to clean.
GRAB YOUR CLOVER AMOUR CROCHET HOOK SIZE H (5.00 MM) HOOK AND LET’S GET STARTED!
*to*–Repeat the instructions written between the two *
PSC—Paired Single Crochet
PSC—sc in first st, insert hook into same st you just finished working in and pull up a loop, hold it, insert hook into next st and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), yo and pull thru all 3 loops on hook. Repeat across entire row.
Row 1—sc in 2nd ch from hook, PSC (starting with the sc you just made) across (30 psc)
Rows 2-30—Ch1, turn, sc in first st, PSC across (starting with first sc made).
Do not fasten off unless you want to change colors. If you change colors, start out where you fastened off. Ch1, turn work so that you are now working down the sides of the cloth. SC evenly around cloth, putting 2sc in each corner. SS to top of 1st sc of round. FO, weave in ends.
This is a nice and quick little project that you can customize the colors of easily. I added two pinstripes on mine for just a little change of color. Changing colors every row makes for a very unique look with this stitch pattern.
