Double-Sided Ridged Washcloth

I was a little bored, so I decided to do up a washcloth with some leftover cotton yarn I had from a previous project. I wanted something a little different so I improvised with my own pattern, added a little lacing and trim to it, and ended up with this. It's textured on both the front and the reverse side, giving it a nice ridged look and feel.

Materials Used:
Yarn needle (for lacing)
Size G or F hook (depending on how tight you want your stitches)
Worsted weight cotton yarn (I used Peaches&Creme for this project)
Contrasting color yarn for trim (and/or optional lacing)
Ribbon for lacing (optional)

*For a more pronounced texture, hdc in back loops only after row 1.

Row 1: Ch 26, hdc in third ch from hook. Hdc in each ch remaining. Ch 2, turn.

Row 2: Sk first hdc, hdc in next st and each st remaining. Hdc in turning ch from previous row. Ch 2, turn. Repeat for 12 more rows, or until desired length is reached.

Lacing (optional)
Weave ribbon or contrasting color yarn through each hdc and hdc row.

Sc in each st around edging of cloth.
To prevent curling, 2 sc in each beginning st and end st of each side.
