Chest Cover Bathing Cloths

Sometimes the simplest patterns can make life a little nicer. This is one of the simplest cloths your bound to come across, but if you have a water saving tub ( very small ) and still like to soak this just might be the cloth for you.

Chest Cover Bathing Cloths
9 ½” by 16” with trim
78 yards worsted weight cotton ( main color )
28 yards worsted weight cotton ( trim ) 106 yards together

Size 10 US needles
Size I US crochet hook
4 sts. by 6 rows to one inch

Straight stitch = Knit one row, purl the next continue in this manner.

DC = double crochet

Straight stitch for 80 rows, or to fit your size, bind off.

Trim is optional, I added a double crochet stitch in every stitch along edges ( 3 in corner stitches ) This will give you a slight ripple while adding enough weight to help hold in place while in water. It also works with the straight stitches natural tendency to curly inward, which really makes this cloth work so well for covering one chest while soaking.
