  1. Can you please tell me what the multiple is for this stitch? I’d like to make something bigger but don’t know how many chains to start with.

  2. I’m always looking for washcloth patterns and this one looks lovely! Thanks for the tip about corners, I tend to mess those up and always have to go back and fix.

    1. This could be a number of factors. Maybe try a smaller hook and just add stitches to get the correct width and height? It could be the thickness of your yarn as well. I would try a smaller hook first though.

  3. What yarn did you use for the cloths in the picture? Those are the exact colors I’m trying to find!! Thank you
