With the warm weather it has bee too hot to really get any crocheting done, any large items, that is! So, I have just been fiddling around with some smaller things to keep the hands moving.
These are hand clothe size and are perfect to keep in the bathroom. We use them to dry our hands off with, or even in the kitchen as hot pads for the pans.
I use Peaches and Cream 100% cotton yarn. It soaks up really well and I like the quality.
These are made using a simple half double crochet stitch. Works up pretty quickly while still leaving small gaps in the stitches.
Nothing fancy, just a quick and easy item that is super handy around the house. Machine washable and they hold up great!
Half-Double Crochet in 3rd chain from hook and all the way across. You will have 25 hdc. Ch.2 and turn.
With out skipping the first stitch, hdc across for 25 hdc.

When you have 12 rows, ch 2 and turn. hDc 3 in same stitch as your turning chain. hDc in each stitch to next corner. hDc 3 in each corner, and continue around.
When you get to your beginning ch 2 slip stitch. Ch 2 and repeat the above row two more times.
