Farmhouse-Inspired Washcloth-- First of the Farmhouse Series

***You can find the PDF version of this pattern in my shop by clicking here. Great for easy printing!***

Hello and welcome to the very first installment of the "Farmhouse Inspired" series! Today I've got a super cute and dainty washcloth pattern that's got all the pretty farmhouse-vibes. It is most definitely beginner-friendly. As all you need to know are the basics- how to chain and single crochet. That's it! 

And doesn't it look so cute propped up on that vintage scale? Which by the way I scored that scale at a flea market for only 5 bucks!! I love flea markets.

This washcloth features the granite (or moss) stitch. Which is basically a pattern of single crochet and chains. It's super simple! And it worked up really quickly for me. Which is obviously a plus.

For this pattern I used the yarn I Love This Cotton! in Ivory. I found this yarn to be a bit thinner than other yarns it's weight. So take that into consideration, as it may affect the size of your washcloth if you use a different yarn. The good thing about this yarn is, I used just about exactly one little skein of it to complete this project!

What you'll need:
I Love This Cotton! in Ivory (or other cotton worsted weight yarn)
Size 5mm H Hook

Dimensions:
Approximately 9.25 x 9 inches

Gauge:
10 sc plus one ch in between each sc by 20 rows equals a four-inch square

Abbreviations:
ch=chain, st(s)=stitch(es), sc=single crochet, sp=space, sk=skip, sl=slip

Notes:
Like I mentioned above, the yarn I used is a bit thinner than other worsted weight yarns. Take that into consideration and check gauge if necessary.

Pattern:
ch 43
1) in 3rd ch from hook (the chains you skip will count as a ch 1 sp) sc, [ch 1, sk one ch, sc] across (21 total sc)
2-41) ch 2 (counts as ch 1 sp), turn [sc in ch 1 sp, ch 1] repeat [] 20 times, then sc in the last ch 1 sp

Edging:
working around the edge of the washcloth, beginning with the left side- [ch 4, sk 2 rows and sl st into edge of the next row] repeat this around the entire perimeter, except when working on the top and bottom of the washcloth you will be working into stitches rather than rows (there will be 14 "ch 4"'s on each side of the washcloth) 

After the edging is complete, weave in ends and you're done!

So simple! And lovely. I hope you like this washcloth!
