This design may look harder than it really is. The little pebbles are created by crocheting a treble crochet stitch and then a single crochet stitch in the next stitch. The height of the treble stitch next to the single crochet stitch makes it puff out – creating the pebble effect.

My favorite so far to actually use as a dishcloth! Or any other cleaning purpose. The bobbles will make good scrubbers 🙂 Again, lazy crocheter that I am, I used a variegated yarn so I didn’t have to change colors… it’s a great size and looks really nice. I might make some of these for Christmas gifts!
This is my very favorite pattern. Thank you!
