The cloths are worked back and forth in textured pattern. Make 1 in each color.
Work 58 chain stitches with hook size 3 mm / C and Cotton Light. Work1 double crochet in the 4th chain stitch from hook (= 2 double crochets), work 1 double crochet in each of the next 2 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, work 1 double crochet in each of the next 3 chain stitches *, work from *-* to end of row = 43 double crochets.
The next row is worked as follows: Work A.1, then A.2 over the next 39 double crochets (= 13 repeats of 3 stitches) and A.3 over the last 3 double crochets. When the diagrams have been completed in height, repeat the 2 rows in the diagrams to finished length - REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! Cut and fasten strand when piece measures approx. 20 cm / 8'' (make sure the length equals the width of the cloth).


= 1 chain stitch
= work 1 double crochet in double crochet from previous row
= work 1 double crochet around the double crochet from previous row (i.e. work around the double crochet itself, not in the stitch)
= this row has already been worked - Start on next row!
