Making the Scallop Seashell Washcloth: Part Six






  Welcome back! There's one more tricky single-crochet-three-together (sc3tog) to make... If you've skipped ahead to this section, then you need to know that the hook you see me using in the tutorial photos is smaller than the pattern calls for. This section of the tutorial will finish the second round of the border - and the whole pattern! Are we ready to be done with it? Let's get to it!





Click here to open the pattern in a new window





Make a single crochet (sc) in the chain (ch)-1 space after the sc3tog.

Make 2 sc in each of the next 5 side-post spaces.

Make (2 sc, ch 1, and 2 sc) in the ch-2 corner space.

Make (2 sc, ch 2, and 2 sc) in each of the next nine ch-2 spaces across the top.

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

Make 2 sc in each of the next five side-post spaces.
(Here's where there was a error in the pattern. Hopefully everybody could figure out the missing parenthesis. It's now been edited.)

Of course, I'm missing a picture here that would be very helpful. After you make the 2 sc in the fifth post space, the next 2 available stitches will be the 2 half-double crochet (hdc). Skip these two stitches and make a single crochet in the ch-1 space. 

To make the last sc3tog: Pull up a loop in the same space as the sc just made. Pull up a loop in the sc3tog. Pull up a loop in the ch-2 space before the join. 

Yarn over and pull through all four loops to complete the stitch. Breath a sigh of relief.

Join with a slip stitch to the beginning ch-1. Bind off and weave in your ends... Breath another sigh of relief!





   That's it! I hope the pictures were helpful... But if there's any area you're still having trouble with, don't hesitate to leave a comment or find me on social media! I'll do my best to help you out.
