Slightly Textured Dishcloth

First, I want to say that I am sorry I haven't posted any patterns in a while. But, here's a new one.

Tools:
- Small amount of worsted weight yarn (preferably 100% cotton)
- H (5.00mm) hook
- Scissors
- Yarn needle

Abbreviations:
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
sc = single crochet
sl st = slip stitch

Pattern:
Ch 27
Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook (ch 3 counts as first dc) and each ch to end. (25 dc)
Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as 1st dc), turn, working in back loops only dc in each st to last st, dc in top of ch 2. (25 dc)
Rows 3-10: Repeat row 2.
Do not fasten off and weave in ends yet.

Border:
Sc around, putting 3 sc in corner sts. Sl st to 1st sc. Fasten off and weave in ends.

I wrote up this pattern after I used it to make a dishcloth. I haven't truly tested it yet, so if you find any issues, please let me know so I can help you out or correct an error. Hopefully I will have a picture to add to this post soon.
