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.
Edging:
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). Sl.st. 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!
