Textured Dish Cloth - Free Crochet Pattern

Hook: 7 – 4.5mm
Material: Sugar N Cream Cotton
Gauge: non-essential

Hints & Tips:
-          Cloth will kind of go diagonal while being worked. Just stretch it back to a square shape or you can let it have a more "diamond" shape. 
-          Cutting and joining with every color change makes it look a little more even.
-     The bottom picture of the collage shows what the backside looks like - this wash cloth is smooth on one side and more rough on the other to make scrubbing dishes easier! 

Row 1) With MC - Ch 31, turn, sc in 2nd ch from hook and across – 30 sc

Row 2) Ch 1, dc in 1st st and every st across – 30 dc

Row 3) With CC - Ch 1, dc in 1st st, *2 fpdc around next st, sk next st* around, dc in last st – 30 dc
