crochet:: my favorite dishcloth

This simple pattern is a regular at my house.  I just can’t find a store-bought dishcloth that works as well, so these are my standard.  I have tried many different patterns, always returning to these because they just seem to be the best shape and size.

For summer this year I have been on a rainbow kick for my color choice.  It just seems cheerful :)

I use these with white flour-sack towels, so I always match no matter what color I choose!  (I have a thing for needing to match.  My husband tells me that it is my “inner Sheldon” coming out.  Sheldon is the totally OCD guy on the Big Bang Theory)


H Hook

Small amounts of 100% cotton yarn (I use Lily Sugar & Cream)

Row 1 – ch 21, hdc in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch across.

Row 2 – ch 2, turn, hcd in each hdc across.

Row 3 – 13 – Repeat row 2

Round 1 – ch 2, 2 hdc in same stitch (corner), then hdc 18 evenly spaced across the ends of the row to the next corner, 3 hdc in corner, hdc in each across to next corner, 3 hdc in corner, hdc 18 evenly again, 3 hdc in corner, and hdc in each across, slip stitch in top of first hdc of round.

Round 2 – ch 1, turn and sc in each around, putting 3 sc in center of each corner, slip stitch together and tie off, weave in end.
