For the Model , I used Reynolds "Saucy" worsted weight and Lily's Kable Kotton. I use it as a washcloth for the bath.
*This loopy washcloth is dedicated to Sharon B. <G>
Substitute a Ch 2 for first hdc in a round.
On Rnds Between Loop Stitches: Push loops up so that you can crochet behind them.
Change colors on odd numbered rounds with the loops. Use as many colors as you want.
If you use a worsted weight cotton yarn, use a "H" hook.
If you use 8/4 Cotton Rug Warp (or double strand of Cotton #10) use a "D" hook
Use as many colors as you want and make any size that you want.
Rnd 1. Ch 4. Join with sl st to beg to make ring.
Rnd 2: Ch 4. *Work dc + ch 1 in ring. Repeat from *11 times. Sl st to beg. (Twelve ch-1 spaces made)
Rnd 3: Sl st to first ch-1 space. *Ch 7, sc in next ch-1 space. Repeat from * around. Join with sl st. (Twelve loops)
Rnd 4: Push up loops so that you can crochet behind them right into the dc from round 2. Sl st to ch-1 space. * 2 hdc in ch-1 space. Repeat from * around. Sl st to beginning (24 sts)
Rnd 5: *Ch 7. Sc in next hdc. Repeat from * around. Do not join. (24 loops)
Rnd 6: Crochet behind loops like you did for rnd 4. Sl st to first hdc. Work 2 hdc in same st. * Hdc in next st. Work 2 hdc in next st. (increase made) Repeat from * around. sl st to beg. (36 sts. = increase of 12 stitches)
For Next Odd Number Rnd: *Ch 7 sc in next hdc. Repeat from * around. Do not join. (Same number of sts as in last even numbered rnd)
For Next Even Rounds: Crochet behind loops like you did for rnd 4. Sl st to first hdc. Work 2 hdc in same st. *Work hdc in next 2 sts .Work 2 hdc in next st. (increase made) Repeat from * around. Sl st to join. (48 sts)
Keep alternating between odd and even number rounds until you've made your cloth the desired size. On even numbered rounds your increases will occur thus: *Work hdc in next 3/4/5/6 sts. Work 2 hdcs in next st. Repeat from * around. sl st to join (60 sts/72 sts/ and so on)
Finish off. Weave in loose ends.
