Designer Shirley A. Enck wrote: “I like to make dishcloths using single stitches. This one uses chain, hdc’s, dc’s and FPdc and BPdc’s. I use different width between FPdc’s depending on finished size I want. This was my first fully completed crochet item since my basal joint thumb surgery! I am little by little getting back to crocheting longer amounts of time.”
