STITCH EXPLANATION:
TECHNIQUE EXPLANATION
This design begins by working an adjustable ring to create a neat, closed center on the finished Washcloth.
Adjustable ring method: Wrap yarn around index finger.

Insert hook into ring on finger, yarn over and draw up a loop.

Carefully slip ring from finger and work the stitches of Rnd 1 (in pattern, below) into the ring.

When Rnd 1 is complete gently, but firmly, pull tail to close up the ring.

NOTES:
1. To help Washcloth lay flat, do NOT turn at beginning of Rnds 2-5.

Turn at beginning of Rnds 6-11.
2. The ch 2 worked at the beginning of Rnds 1-11 does not count as a st.
