While traveling in relative comfort (I was sitting in a nice comfy chair in an RV) on a recent road trip, I was amazed to find that I didn't get car sick when I crocheted and so I crocheted a dishcloth. Of course, if I had gotten carsick, I would have had a dishcloth handy to clean up the mess...

Introducing, "The Road Trip Dishcloth!" I made it with Sugar N' Creme cotton yarn (I bought it on a cone and I no longer have the label for the color). I don't remember what hook size I used, but it was probably an I or a J.



It isn't anything fancy, and I made the pattern up as I went along (but it could already exist somewhere...it isn't very original Wink ). Here it is if you are interested! And, as a warning, I've never written out a pattern before, so if it doesn't make sense, let me know and I'll try to clarify. I wrote it out after I finished, but I think it's right Wink

"Road Trip Dishcloth"

Ch 27
Row 1: Sk 2 ch (counts as 1st hdc); hdc across (26 hdc total)
Row 2: ch 2 (counts as 1st hdc); hdc across (26 hdc total)
Row 3: Repeat row 2
Row 4: ch 2 (counts as 1st hdc); hdc in next st, ch 1, sk next stitch; (2 hdc, ch 1, sk next st) across, ending with 2 hdc (8 sets of 2 hdc, ch 1, sk next st plus 2 hdc)
Rows 5-7: Repeat row 2
Row 8: Repeat row 4

Repeat rows 5-8 until desired length, ending with a row 7.

For border: hdc around, with 2 hdc in each corner.

I did a total of 23 rows (5 sets of the pattern repeat, ending with 3 rows of hdc)

It is awesome that you found out that crocheting helps you with car sickness!

The dishcloth is lovely, and the pattern seems great.  Fabulous job!

Il y a un monstre dans le lac, et il s'appelle Jean-Claude.
Mon ami le monstre sort du lac quand l'eau est trop chaude.
Le monstre vient au Lac du Bois pour jouer de la guitare.
Il aime bien manger les villageois et les monos bizarres. RAAAARAH!

Thanks! I checked the pattern visually, but I haven't actually followed it to see if it works.

Besides, if I check it, it'll probably make perfect sense to me Wink

I wonder why that is? I can't read even for a minute! But I crocheted for several hours without even feeling slightly queasy. Perhaps I should do some further study on this...  Grin
