Super Simple Dishcloth

I think I may have miscalculated last week...
Only five weeks and two days till Christmas!
I do realize that we have yet to make it past Thanksgiving... But, those of us giving handmade must get started early.
Crochet dishcloths make a great gift. They work up quickly and people love them! Package a pair of these simple dishcloths tied in a pretty bow and you have a stunning gift for any occasion. Handmade for less than $3.00!

Materials List:
Worsted Weight Cotton Yarn
Hook Size U.S. J/10 (6.00mm)
Scissors
Tapestry Needle

Starting out: Ch 27

Row 1: Work 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Continue working 1 sc in each ch stitch to end. (26sc)
Row 2: Ch 1, turn. Work 1 sc in 2nd stitch from hook, work 1 dc in next stitch. Continue working {1 sc, 1dc}. Repeat between {} to the end of the row. (26stitches)
Row 3-23: Repeat row 2. Each row should begin with a sc and end with a dc.
Row 24: Ch 1, turn. Work 1 sc in 2nd stitch from hook. Continue working 1 sc in each stitch to end. (26sc)

Finish off. Weave in ends.

Do you have a quick handmade hooky project that you will be gifting this Christmas? Share a photo or a link on Facebook. I really, really want to know!

Wishing you all a happy weekend.
