The name says it all! The body of the dishcloth is crocheted in simple single crochet through the back loop. Once complete, a nice border is made with reverse single crochet (or crab stitch). I had never done a reverse single crochet before (I found this video by our pals at Moogly very helpful!) but once complete, it created a sturdy border. Since this uses Shine Sport, it makes a soft cloth that’s great to use on your skin as a nightly washcloth or a spa cloth but changing up the yarn to a 100% cotton like Simply Cotton Sport will get you a great dishcloth for the kitchen as well!
