NOTE: The following stripe will be a single-row stripe of white. If we work that row as normal, we will be at the opposite edge from the gray yarn when we need to change back to gray. To get the gray yarn to the other edge without cutting and re-joining it, we will be crocheting over it on this next row to carry it across to the other side.

Row 32: The gray yarn that was crocheted over during the last row will still be visible.

Sc evenly across nxt side of washcloth (about 40 to 45 sc). Sl st in beg ch-1 sp. Insert hook into 1st sc of round, yarn over with White yarn, and pull through all loops on hook (like a sl st). You will work the nxt round with White.
Round 2: Ch 1, do not turn. 2 sc in same st. *Sc in ea st across to center st of 3-sc corner from previous round, 3 sc in center st of corner.* Repeat between *and* 2 more times. Sc in ea st across to beg of round. Sl st in beg ch-1 sp. Insert hook into 1st sc of round, yarn over with Gray yarn, and pull through all loops on hook (like a sl st). You will work the final round with Gray. Cut the White yarn, leaving about a 6” tail. On the next round, lay the White tail over the previous round and crochet over it.

Sc in ea st across to beg of round. Cut yarn, leaving about a 6” tail. Pull on the current loop on the hook until the end of the yarn comes out. Thread that tail into the eye of your yarn needle. Insert yarn needle from front to back into the 1st sc of round, and pull it through. Insert yarn needle down into top of the last st of the round (same st the yarn tail originally came out of), and pull through. (This technique re-creates the look of the top of a sc, making the join of the round invisible around the edge.) Weave in ends.
