Venice Beach Hexagon Washcloth

Lion Brand« Cotton-Ease®

GAUGE:

Exact gauge is not essential to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:

TECHNIQUE EXPLANATION
This design begins by working an adjustable ring to create a neat, closed center on the finished Washcloth.
Adjustable ring method: Wrap yarn around index finger. Insert hook into ring on finger, yarn over and draw up a loop. Carefully slip ring from finger and work the stitches of Rnd 1 (in pattern, below) into the ring. When Rnd 1 is complete gently, but firmly, pull tail to close up the ring.

NOTES:

1. To help Washcloth lay flat, do NOT turn at beginning of Rnds 2-5. Turn at beginning of Rnds 6-11.
2. The ch 2 worked at the beginning of Rnds 1-11 does not count as a st.

WASHCLOTH
Following the Technique Explanation above, make an adjustable ring.
Rnd 1: Ch 2 (does not count as a st here and throughout the pattern), work 9 hdc in ring; join with sl st in first hdc - 9 hdc at the end of this rnd.
Rnd 2: Ch 2, work 2 hdc in each hdc around; join with sl st in first hdc - 18 hdc at the end of this rnd.
Rnd 3: Ch 2, (2 hdc in next hdc, hdc in next hdc) 9 times; join with sl st in first hdc - 27 hdc.
Rnd 4: Ch 2, (2 hdc in next hdc, hdc in next 2 hdc) 9 times; join with sl st in first hdc - 36 hdc.
Rnd 5: Ch 1, sc in next st, hdc in next st, dc in next st, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next st, *dc in next st, hdc in next st, sc in next st, hdc in next st, dc in next st, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next st; rep from * 4 more times, dc in next st, hdc in next st; join with sl st in first sc - 42 sts and 4 ch-1 sps at the end of this rnd.
Rnds 6-11: Ch 2, turn, *hdc in each st to next ch-1 sp, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next ch-1 sp; rep from * around; join with sl st in first hdc.
Fasten off.

Venice Beach Hexagon Washcloth Reviewed by Melissa Ramke on 2012-08-29 *****
I have tried so many patterns, attempting to make an attractive hexagon. This is the first one that has actually worked for me. I love the illusion of movement that happens here - as if the shape ripples outward fluidly. I'm attaching a photo of my motif, after row 6. Thank you!
