An adorable baby I met while traveling

Yarn: Cotton worsted weight (any brand). Shown above:
1 ball — Jarbo Garn super Soft Cotton (100% cotton), 50 g / 1.75 oz, 80 m / 87.4 yds. Color #8865 (purple/green mix)

American crochet terms are used in this pattern. Work the stitch pattern, which is called “Granite Stitch (Seed Stitch)” with a 2-sc border, until piece is desired length.

1 ball is enough to make 2 square washcloths in this same stitch pattern instead.

Work the pattern over an even number of stitches. Start and finish every row with 2 sc (rows end with a sc in each of the last two stitches).

Foundation Single Crochet 26 sts.

Row 1: Ch 1, turn. Sc into first 2 sts. *ch 1, skip 1 ch, sc in following st;* repeat from * to last 2 sts. Finish with 1 sc each in last 2 sts.

Row 2: Ch 1, turn. Sc into first 2 sts. *sc in chain-1 space, ch 1, skip 1 sc;* repeat from * to end. Finish with 1 sc each in last 2 sts.

Repeat row 2 until you are almost out of yarn. Fasten off.
