When my mother-in-law was undergoing cancer treatments, she no longer had the energy to paint her beautiful still lifes, so she learned to crochet in order to satisfy her need to create and to use color and keep busy and useful while sitting still. When she passed away, over ten years ago now, I inherited what was left of her yarn.
Here is a jar full of partly used up skeins of 100% cotton yarn, worsted weight. I think it’s mostly Sugar & Cream. We need some new washcloths, so here we go…
I’m using a size H hook.
row 1: skip 2 chain, 1 single crochet in next chain, then *1 double crochet, 1 single crochet* (repeat between ** all the way across the row), 1 double crochet, chain 2, turn
row 2: skip 1st double crochet, then *1 double crochet in single crochet of previous row, 1 single crochet in double crochet of previous row* (repeat between ** all the way across the row), 1 double crochet in chain 2 of previous row, chain 2, turn
repeat from row 2 until you reach the desired size – roughly square.
edge all around in single crochet
I am in the middle of the fifth one so far and hope to have the jar empty by Sunday, February 7. That’s one week from today. You got that, Accountability Group?
