Making the Scallop Seashell Washcloth: Part Two

  Welcome back to the Scallop Seashell Washcloth tutorial! In this section, we'll cover the last row of the body. Before we start, a reminder again: The original pattern calls for a size I/9-5.50MM hook, but I'l be using a smaller size for the tutorial. Let's get to it!

Click here to open the pattern in a new window

Here's the pattern worked up to row 9: Get ready to start the last row!

To begin row 10, chain (ch) 1 to count as the first single crochet (sc).

The next stitch is a single crochet three together (sc3tog). Pull up a loop in each of the next three stitches. (4 loops on hook)

Yarn over, pull through all 4 loops on the hook to complete the sc3tog. To begin the repeat in parenthesis ( ) from the pattern, make 1 half-double crochet (hdc) in the next stitch.

Make a front-post double crochet (fpdc) in the back-post dc.

Make a hdc in the next stitch - not in the same stitch as for other rows.

Make 1 dc in each of the next 2 stitches. This completes the first set of parenthesis ( ) from the pattern.

Working across for the repeat, make (1 hdc, 1 fpdc, 1 hdc, 1 dc in each of the next 2 stitches) 2 more times.

Across the next three stitches: Make 1 hdc, 1 fpdc, 1 hdc.

Single crochet the next 3 stitches together.

To finish row 10: Make a single crochet in the last stitch.

Bind off! You may choose to weave in your ends now, or you can work over them for the first part of the border. I work over mine as far as I can, then save them to weave in at the end.

That finishes the body, now we'll get to the border! Click here for the next tutorial.
