Washcloth: FPdc

I came up with this washcloth pattern the other night and thought I would share it with you guys. If you use my pattern, please link back to my blog or to my pattern on Ravelry. Also, I would love for you to send a picture so I can see!!

This is the first pattern I have came up with and the first I have ever written. So, there might be some mistakes. If you happen to find any please let me know! :-)

Hook: I used a K hook, but you can use whatever size you want depending on the size you want to make.

Ch. 30
Foundation Row: hdc in 3rd ch. from hook and then hdc in the remaining chs in the row. (27) ch2 and turn.
Row1: hdc across in each previous hdc. ch 2 and turn.
Row2: *hdc in first 2 previous hdc. FPdc in hdc 2 rows below. Repeat from * across row. Ch2 and turn.
Rows3-27: All odd rows: repeat row 1. Even rows: repeat Row 2.
Cut yarn and finish off.
Join yarn and SC all the way around the square. Remember to do 3sc in each corner stitch. Sl.St. to join.
Ch 2 and hdc in each previous sc around (3hdc in each corner). to join and then fasten off.
Weave in ends and you are done!

I hope these instructions have made sense. Like I said, it's my first pattern to write for others.

Let me know how the washcloths(or dishcloths) turn out for you!

Just a few things I have been working on...

I have lots more than what I have pictured here. I just havent taken a picture of everything yet. Or, well..I'm being lazy and these were the things that were close by:

This is a back scrubber for the shower. It was originally supposed to be a scarf but the yarn I was using is really bulky and it was ending up a lot wider than I wanted. So, I just stopped and added two ch40 handles on each end to hold it with.

Washcloth using FPdc:
My first knit project. A scarf...eventually. lol.
Here are a few pictures I found on my camera from Christmas presents I made.
The red was mine, Orange was mother-in-law's, Curly scarf was for sis-in-law, and the pink one was for my step-daughter. There were WAY more that I made and just never got a chance to take a picture of. I wish I had though...b/c I made my mom a gorgeous cerulean blue and white one!!
