3-19-2016 Mini Prayer Cloths

I had so much fun crocheting these mini prayer cloths
for my friends.
I prayed over each one before giving it away.


The pattern is free and can be found here:

Rows: I indicate rows by using the letter R and the row number. Example: R1 would be row one. After each row, you will ch1, turn.! Popcorn Stitch: make 3 dc in the same stitch. Take hook out of last dc and leave loop hang. Insert hook into first dc (front to back, as normal) and grab the loop from last dc. Pull through first dc and ch 1. This ch 1 will not count as a stitch in the row - you will skip it when you sc in the next row. Push popcorn stitch forward to make it stick out if needed.
Remember: at the end of each row, ch 1 and turn.!

R1: ch 10. sc in 2nd ch from hook and in the next 8 ch (9 sc)!
R2: sc across (9 sc)!
R3: sc in next 4 sts, pc in next st, sc in next 4 sts (8 sc, 1 popcorn)!
R4: sc across (9 sc)!
R5: sc in next 4 sts, pc in next st, sc in next 4 sts (8 sc, 1 popcorn)!
R6: sc across (9 sc)!
R7: sc in next 2 sts, pc in next st, sc in next st, pc in next st, sc in next st, pc in next st, sc in next 2 sts (6 sc, 3 popcorn)!
R8: sc across (9 sc)!
R9: sc in next 4 sts, pc in next st, sc in next 4 sts (8 sc, 1 popcorn)!
R10: sc across (9 sc)!
R11: sc across. ch 1, but DO NOT turn. (9 sc)!
Finishing: 2 sc in last st of R11, then sc evenly around the prayer cloth, making 3 sc in each corner except the first corner. Once you get back to the first corner, make 1 sc in that st (it will already have 2sc in it). Fasten off and weave in ends.
