I've wanted to work on a new post all week, but it wasn't meant to be. Last week was a little bit rough for my little one. She was down and out with the flu and I obsessed over getting it all week. The doc informed us that she was only the second case she had seen so far this flu season. I had a flu shot a couple of months ago and I'm sure it helped me with not getting the virus... I don't know for sure.
I'm happy to say that all is well for now and Ireland is in good health.
I've been working on several dishcloths over the weekend. I made a couple in crochet and one knitted. I love the knitted ones, but the crocheted ones are really pretty too. The ones in the photos are crocheted.
Here is the pattern for the dishcloth:
Note: I used an H hook, however for the next one I make, I will add a few more starting chains and use a smaller hook.
worsted weight cotton yarn
Size H crochet hook
9.5 x 9.5 inches (24 x 24 cm)
4 rows and 6sts = 2 inches
Row 1: Hdc in 3rd ch from hook. Hdc in each ch ac9ross, turn (29 hdc).
Important: Remember to work the beginning ch 2 of each row as a stitch. You will work the last hdc of each row into the top of this ch 2.
Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as first st of row), Hdc in first st, (skip next st, 2 hdc in next st) across to the last 2 sts, skip the next st, work 1 hdc in the last st, turn.
Row 3 - 18: Repeat row 2
Row 19: Ch 2, Hdc in next st, hdc in each st across. Finish off

I managed to make a little progress on the ripple...adding 2 shades of blue, a shade of pink, and starting the red.
