Follow the Spiders? Why can't it ever be "Follow the Butterflies"?


I agree with Ron, why can't it ever be Follow the Butterflies?? So to help Ron (& Harry) clean up that little spider problem I have created a pattern for the:

Follow-the-Butterflies washcloth--Basic version
materials:
Worsted Weight Cotton yarn (I used Bernat Cot'n Soft "Pastel Print"
size "F" crochet hook, a larger hook will give you a looser cloth...I like mine rather stiff.

Pattern Rows
The pattern stitch is actually 4 rows worked in and out of sequence, please follow the main pattern inserting the proper pattern row (sts refers to the sc of the previous row)

Row A: ch 5, skip next 4 sc, sc in each of the next two sts;

Row B: ch 4, sc in each of the next 2 sts;

Row C: ch 3, sc in each of the next 2 sts;

Row D: ch 2, sc around all ch spaces of previous rows keeping this sc as tight as possible, ch 2, sc in each of the next 2 sts.

The Washcloth pattern

row 1: ch 27, sc in 2 ch from hook and in each ch across; ch 1, turn. (26 sc)

row 2: sc in each st across; ch 1, turn (26 sc)

row 3: sc in next 2 sts, repeat patt row A across row; ch 1, turn (4 ch sps)

row 4: sc in next 2 sts, repeat patt row B across row; ch 1, turn (4 ch sps)

row 5: sc in next 2 sts, repeat patt row C across row; ch 1, turn (4 ch sps)

row 6: repeat row 4.

row 7: sc in next 2 sts, repeat patt row D across row; ch1, turn (4 butterflies made)

row 8: sc in next 2 sts, *ch 4, skip next st (center of butterfly), 2 sc in next 2 sts*, rep between ** across; ch1, turn (4 ch sps)

row 9: sc in next 2 sts, 3 sc around ch sp, *ch 5, 2 sc around next ch sp*, repeat to last ch sp, in last ch sp work one more sc (total of 3 sc), sc in next 2 sts; ch 1, turn. (3 ch sps)

row 10: sc in next 5 sts, repeat patt row B across, sc in last 3 sts; ch 1, turn (3 ch sps)

row 11: sc in next 5 sts, repeat patt row C across, sc in last 3 sts; ch 1, turn (3 ch sps)

row 12: repeat row 10

Row 13: sc in next 5 sts, repeat patt row D across, sc in last 3 sts; ch 1, turn (3 butterflies made)

row 14: sc in next 5 sts, *ch 4, sk next st (center of butterfly), sc in next two stitches*, repeat between ** across, sc in lst 3 sts; ch 1, turn (3 ch sps)

row 15: sc in eac of next 2 sts, *ch 5, sc around next ch loop*, repeat between ** across, sk next 3 sts, sc in last 2 sts; ch 1, turn.

row 16: repeat row 4

row 17: repeat row 5

row 18: repeat row 4

row 19: repeat row 7

row 20: repeat row 8

row 21: sc in next 2 sts, *4 sc around ch loop, sc in next 2 sts* repeat between ** across; ch 1, turn. (26 scs)

row 22: sc in each st across. Cut and bind off.

Now hide in your yarn tails.


The Basic version is done.

I have worked out a couple of versions of this pattern and may put them up later, but this is a good start for now.

If you would like to make more butterflies in your rows, increase your working ch by 6 sts per butterfly; you will also have to increase the repeats of the washcloth rows, each additional row of butterflies will add 6 additional washcloth rows starting on row 8 (row 20);
Edges on this pattern are not finished because I don't think a tigher crocheted cloth really needs it; if you wish you may use your favorite edging.

this pattern has NOT been checked for accuracy; not responsible for errors or inaccuracies but I would love to hear of them so I can fix them.
