Making the Scallop Seashell Washcloth: Part Five

  Welcome back - Don't forget that I'm using a smaller hook in the photos! In this section of the tutorial, we will work the second round of the border, up to the first single-crochet-three-together (sc3tog). Let's get to it!

Click here to open pattern in a new window

To begin Round 2, chain (ch) 1. Make 1 single crochet (sc) in the ch-2 corner space.

Ch 3, make 2 sc in the same space.

Make 1 sc in each of the next 13 double crochet (dc).

As you work the sc stitches across, the pattern will curl up a bit. It's designed this way for a little 3-D texture.

Make (2 sc, ch 3, and 2 sc) in the ch-2 corner space. 

The next stitch is that sc3tog. Highlighted here are the spaces you will use for the stitch.

I'll be pulling up the loops of my sc3tog with extra height so you can see it better. Make yours with proper tension. Pull up a loop in the dc stitch, then the ch-2 space, and pull up the last loop in the sc3tog.

And there it is!
