Kitchen Pants (Britches) Dishcloths

Makes a great shower gift.
Designer: Unknown - An old pattern my mother had
Rating: Easy

Materials: Cotton worsted weight yarn, small amout of ribbon in a matching color, 5.00m crochet hook (am.H/8)

Directions: Chain 28.
Row 1: DC in 3rd chain from hook and in each chain across foundation. (27 dc)Row 2: * Ch 3 (for first dc), turn, dc in each dc* across.
Row 3 - 14: Repeat from * to * and finish off.

Assembly: When both cloths are made and ends tied in, fold each in half and thread ribbon through second last row, pull the ribbon till the cloth looks like the ruffle on bloomers and tie in a bow . This is the first leg. Repeat with second cloth. Next, thread the ribbon through second row from top, starting with the front and going all the way around joining both cloths. (Cloths will join at center front and center back). Gather this ribbon until it is about the right size to be the waist, tie another bow. Lastly, about the 6th row from the top add one more ribbon to make the fly. (The ribbon goes through only 4 sts. first and last on each leg), tie 4th bow here.

Add this poem and you have yourself a great wedding shower gift or a cute kitchen decoration.
