Denimberry Stripe Washcloth - American Yarns

Hello! Today I have a second berry washcloth pattern for you. It is made from Lily Sugar and Cream in Blueberry and Blue Jeans. If you haven't already guessed, there is a berry theme going on!

If you have a look at this post, you can find my review of the yarn, and the first washcloth of the series- Blueberry washcloth, pictured below; rolled. The yarn was provided to me by American Yarns. Based in Victoria, Australia, they have a fabulous range of imported yarns

Washcloths are fun to make; they take very little time, might teach a new stitch or technique, and are usable and make great gifts.

The Berry Stripe Washcloth uses the Suzette Stitch, which is a one row repeat!.

Materials needed are:
Lily and Cream Cotton in Blueberry and Blue Jeans
5 mm hook.
A yarn needle is also required.

Pattern is written in US terms.

Make a chain of 28 with Blueberry.

Set up row: Skip first ch, (sc, dc) into same st. *sk ch (sc, dc) into next st. Repeat from * till the last ch. sc only into last ch. Turn.

Pattern Row: Ch 1, (sc, dc) into first st.(the is the sc from previous row) *sk st (sc, dc) into next st. Repeat from * till the last st. sc only in last st.

Change to Blue Jeans, without breaking cotton. Repeat Pattern Row, twice.
Change to Blueberry, without breaking cotton. Repeat Pattern Row, twice.

Continue alternating colours for a total of 26 rows

This will make a 20 x 20 cm square/ 7.8 x 7.8 inch square.

Border-Without turning, rotate 90° right. Ch 1, sc into side of each row, and twice into corner. Continue all the way around making sure to cover the colour change passes.

I also made a strawberry version! Striped and plain.

Thanks again,

Happy Crocheting
