My stitch of the week has gotten a little behind since I had the baby. I’m trying to get back on a schedule but things have been a little crazy around here.

Here’s my latest. There is a pattern for a dishcloth and a scrubbie.

FPDC – yo, insert hook from front to back and to front again around the vertical post (upright part) of next st, yo and draw yarn through, yo and complete dc.
