Bobbleberry Washcloth - American Yarns. + Give away announcement!


To complete the set of washcloths, I bring you the Bobbleberry washcloth. The yarn was provided to me by American Yarns, and you can read my thoughts on Lily Sugar and Cream in this post. You can find the first washcloth in that same post,and the second here.



I am using Lily Sugar and Cream in Blue jeans, and a 5 mm hook. This washcloth uses variations of both bobble stitch and berry stitch in alternating rows to create a really textured piece. US terms are used.
This will make a 20 x 20 cm square / 7.8 x 7.8 inch square

Special stitches used:


Bobble stitch: (Bo) - (YO, insert hook, pull up a loop, YO, pull through 2 loops) 4 times- all worked in same st. YO pull through 5 loops on hook.

Starting Bobble: (SBo)- 2 ch (YO, insert hook, pull up a loop, YO, pull through 2 loops) 3 times. YO pull through 4 loops on hook.

Berry Stitch (Be): YO, insert hook, pull up loop, YO, pull through 1 loop, insert hook through same st, YO pull up loop. YO, pull through 4 loops on hook.




Make a Chain of 28.

Row 1: (RS) Skip 1 ch, sc across. (27 sc)
Row 2: (WS) 2 Ch (not counted as st), *Be into first sc, sc in next. Rep from * across, finishing with a Be. (14 Be)
Row 3: 1 ch (not counted as st) sc across (27 sc)
Row 4: SBo, *sc, Bo. Rep from * across (14 Bo - including SBo)
Row 5: as Row 3.

Rep rows 2-5 five times.

Fasten off and weave in ends.
