Ch 35.

Row 1: Sc in third ch from hook going into the top loop of the chain and the back bump. *Ch 1, skip a chain, Sc in next stitch* Repeat *to* this all the way to the end of the chain. Turn.

Row 2: Ch 2. Sc in first ch 1 space from previous row. *Ch 1, sc in next ch space* Repeat to the end of row. Make sure your last sc in the ch 2 from the previous row if you do not your washcloth will not have straight edges. Turn.

Row 3-28:
Repeat row 2.

Border: Ch 1, sc all the way across in each
sc and chain space. In the last space (the ch 2 from previous row) Sc, ch 2,
sc. This forms a corner. (There will be 34 sc across. The second sc in the last
stitch counts as the first sc of the side)

 Continue to sc all the
way down the side placing a sc in each row. In the last row sc, ch 2, sc. This
forms another corner. (There will be 28 sc on the side.)

Then sc across the starting ch. As you sc across the bottom you can crochet over your first tail so you don’t have to weave it in later. In the last ch sc, ch 2, sc. Forming the next corner. (There will be 34 sc across.)

Then sc up the
side. The last sc will be in the same stitch as the very first sc of the
border. Then ch 2 and sl st to the first sc. (There will be 28 sc on the side)

Loop: Ch 25, sl st back into the same stitch.   Weave in ends.

The loop is
optional. I like a big loop so I can hang it on my handle in my shower. If you
want a smaller loop chain less.
