Easy #Crochet Dish Cloth


This is the dish cloth pattern I used to make the matching dish clothes for last Monday's towel topper post.
You can have lots of fun varying the colors and the edging, which will make every one of them look different even though the basic pattern is the same.  These make great gifts (or are nice to just keep for yourself) and they are quick and easy to whip up.

Row 1: hdc in second ch from hook and each ch across.  Turn.

  3. Should you chain and then turn instead of turn and then chain? I feel like mine isn't quite right on the ends. I'm still fairly new to crocheting, any help woul be greatly appreciated.
