GAUGE:

10 hdc = 4 in. (10 cm)
EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL FOR THIS PROJECT
When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

To change color, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete stitch.

Square Washcloth - New, Fun and Modern! Reviewed by Valerie Uland on 2008-09-14 *****
I am very happy to see some new, modern dish cloth patterns! I love the colors shown, but made myself work one up on some of my Lion Cotton I have on hand first. I used Fern Green, Banana and Poppy Red to match a kitchen for a gift. The directions are great, and I only had to work in a few yarn ends when completed. Finished size is generous and luxurious for the kitchen. Give it a try!
