This dishcloth is worked flat, so be sure to turn your work after each row.

dc in the third ch from the hook, and in ea ch across.
ch 1 and turn. hdc in ea st across.
ch 2 and turn. dc in ea st across.
Repeat Rows 2 and 3
To adjust the length of your dishcloth, simply repeat Rows 2 and 3 your desired number of times.
Continuing from the last row, sc evenly around the entire dishcloth. I recommend aiming to place the same amount of sts on ea side to uphold the square shape.
Pull through the last st, cut yarn, and weave in any ends.
Dishcloths aren’t typically in need of blocking, but feel free to do so. If you chose a 100% cotton yarn, I recommend simply washing these dishcloths in the washer and dryer just like clothes. They will last for years to come!
