Crochet Tissue Box Holder & Washcloth

Lion Brand® Lion® Cotton


16.5 sts + 16 rows = 4 inches (10 cm). 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

PATTERN STITCH – Multiple of 2 sts

Row 1 Skip 3 ch, 2 sc in next ch, *skip 1 ch, 2 sc in next ch; repeat from * across. Ch 2, turn.

Very easy, very pretty especially for a gift. I made this in 1 day. Gave several of these sets as house warming gifts and shower gifts.
