Easy crochet dish cloths in the round

       cloths in photos are unblocked

Both cloths are made the same up until the shell round... I used a larger hook ( I ) with the reddish one and a few more increases

Size H US hook
32 yards of 100% cotton worsted weight yarn approximately ( less for the red one )
7 inches wide ( red 5 3/4 )
Exact gauge is not essential to this project

1 ) chain 4 join with a slip stitch to the first chain to form a circle
2 ) chain 2, double crochet 11 into the circle
3 - 4 ) chain 2, double crochet, increase 1.. keep stitches on the loose side
5 ) increase once into each stitch.... this is where I stopped the red one ( ran out of yarn lol )
6 ) double crochet into the next stitch 5 times, skip 2 stitches repeat to end, slip stitch into the top of the first shell and bind off... weave in ends
