J Crochet Hook (6.00 mm)
1 Skein Lily's Sugar and Cream Yarn (My skein is Hot Blue)
Chain Stitch - yarn over and pull through (you don't typically count this in your stitch count)
Single Crochet - Insert hook into stitch, yarn over and pull through (there should be 2 loops on your hook now), yarn over again and pull through both stitches.
1. Make a slip knot and then chain 26 stitches (this is 25 stitches plus your turning chain)
3. Single crochet all the way across and chain one to complete your second row. (25 stitches)
|Here is my chain one of the last row.|
|I pull the yarn connected to the skein through my chain stitch.|
|I pull the original loop tight.|
|I repeat that process.|
|I pull it tight again and it knots off my work. I cut it off from the skein.|
|I thread the needle using the tail from the end I cut off.|
|Using the needle, I weave in the end.|
|You can barely see where I weaved in the end.|
|I tie it off to the work and cut off the extra.|
Do you have any questions? I would love to see how your work turned out if you made a dish cloth. Next week I will be back with a couple more stitches for you and to wrap up my summer series.
