Model made by designer, using Maysville Carpet Warp
This wash cloth was made out of three colors of size 8/2 cotton rug warp and a size "D" aluminum crochet hook. However, the pattern is adjustable--you could easily substitute C & C Speed Cro-Sheen, or two strands of Cotton thread #10. If you like a thicker dishcloth than you can substitute Southmaid Cotton #8, or other cotton sport weight yarn/thread.ssg
Finished size is about 10" x 10"
5-tr Bobble: Holding back last loop of each stitch, make 5 treble crochets in stitch indicated in pattern. Thread over and pull through all loops.
Color Changes: Pull new color through last loop of last stitch of old color. Do Not Fasten Off Old Color. Let it old drop and continue working with the new color. When you need to use the old color again, simply pull it up to working row & use the same color changing method.
Bobbles look best when they are worked from the wrong side of the crochet fabric and surrounded by shorter stitches. Weave in loose threads as work progresses.
