Grandma's Washcloth

Such a simple project for the beginner.

I named this pattern "Grandma's Washcloth" because it reminds me of a simpler time. Dishes needed to be done and tables needed to be cleaned and no frills were necessary.
These 100% cotton washcloths will last for years. Make them all one color or experiment with bold stripes. They make great home warming or Christmas gifts and take no time at all to whip up.
This is a Silver Lake Crochet Co. original pattern.

Hook: H
Gauge: 4 sc=1 inch, 4 rows=1 inch
8 1/2 X 8 inches

Row 2: Ch 1, Sc in second ch from hook, 1 Sc in each Sc, turn. (30 stitches)

Border: Turn work 90 degrees and Sc evenly down side of work, 2 Sc in corner, turn 90 degrees. Continue until you have made your way back around to your Beg Sc. Sl to Beg Sc. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
