You will love the ease and breeze of the Summer Days Washcloth Pattern. Made using Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton! Yarn (Aqua),  you will be thrilled with how this #4 weight cotton yarn is so soft & not stiff like other cotton yarns.  Instructions are easy to follow.

I like to use 2 – 3 different stitches in one stitch a lot of times.  It is a nice, unique play on just regular SC, HDC, & DC.
With this pattern you will SC, then HDC twice in the same stitch.
