What a cute idea! This would make a lovely gift. It's like soap-on-rope for older folks, but in a pocket. Would also be a romantic touch to an anniversary or bride-groom basket.

In crocheting the corner pocket, it states for R4-follow previous pattern of dc, sc across row, ch 1 and turn.Do you mean to repeat R3? That would be the previous pattern. Then for R6, it states to repeat R4. I am a blonde, can you explain this to me please. I have been making wash cloths and dish cloths but this is the first time I have seen this pattern and I just love it. Thanks, Betty

First off, thank you for the pattern! But I was wondering what the gauge is supposed to be?
I chained 19 with an I hook and cotton yarn, and my starter chain was about 4 inches long. That seems a bit small for a wash cloth.

No gauge, make whatever size you want. Just a fun free pattern.

The pattern page states there's a PDF download available on Ravelry; there isn't. I only found it on Craftsy; that link works.
