Start: Use hook 3 mm and chain 59 (ch). Start in the 2nd stitch from the hook.
ROW 1+ (1 single crochet (sc), skip 2 stitches, 5 double crochets (dc) in same stitch, skip 2 stitches) 9 times, 1 sc, skip 2 stitches, 3 double crochet in last st, 1 ch, turn.
Repeat until you have a square cloth. I make 29-30 rows of shells.
LAST ROW To get it straight at the top, do the following in the 2nd stitch from the hook:
(2 half double crochet, skip 1 stitch, 3 sc, skip 1 stitch) 9 times, 2 half double crochet, skip 1 stitch, 2 sc, 1 ch.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Babaaaaa: Now you have a Dishcloth in Shell Stitch that is ready to use 🙂
