Lemons on the Line Washcloth
I’m blaming my dish and washcloth making friends for encouraging me, and now here’s another offering using the Tipsy Lemon stitch. Thanks to Dianna for suggesting the name!
This simple pattern is worked in an even number of stitches, in 6 row panels, so you can resize it to your liking.
You will need:
Approximately 1 ½ oz of worsted weight cotton (50 yds)
5.0 mm crochet hook
9.5 x 9.5”
SC Single crochet
HBDC Herringbone double crochet
HDC Half double crochet
BLO Back loop only
This pattern is worked in a repeating panel. If you alter the sizes, you may want to consider adding extra row(s) of SC to top and bottom to square up the cloth.
