Mom's Favorite Dishcloth

So i will be the first to admit that this pattern is lame. But my mom loved these so much that i thought i'd post them.

materials: Sugar n Cream cotton, or any worsted weight cotton or acrylic yarn
Size H or I or J hook, depending on how loose you want it.

Crazy Stitch

chain a multiple of 3+1 (i did 22)
foundation row: 2 dc in 4th chain from hook, *sk 2 ch, (sc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next ch* repeat * to * across row

row 1: ch 1 to turn, *sc, ch2, 2 dc* in the chain space from previous row. repeat * to * across row

repeat row 1 until your cloth is a square. then work one round of sc all the way around, working 3 sc in the corners. work one round of crab stitch (which is just sc worked backwards). weave in the ends and wash some dishes!
