The next dishcloth in the Spring Dishcloth Collection features the double crochet stitch, with a fun twist. Like most dishcloths, it is quick and easy to make. Follow along with the video tutorial or the written pattern!
Approximately 32 grams/65 yards of any cotton yarn (sample uses WeCrochet Dishie in Blush)
Size H (5.5mm) crochet hook
Yarn Needle to weave in ends
Ruler to check gauge if desired
It is not necessary to achieve a certain gauge for this project, but if you want the same dimensions as the sample I suggest checking.
14 double crochet stitches by 6 rows = 4 inches in double crochet worked flat
sc: single crochet
dc: double crochet
f/o: finish off
*...*: repeat the designated number of times

The ch 2 at the beginning of each row does not count as a stitch. This is the turning chain, and will allow the edges to remain nice and straight.
When worked to pattern, this dishcloth measures approximately 8 inches by 8 inches.
Row 1: dc in the third ch from the hook *sk 1 ch, dc in next ch, go back and dc into the skipped ch* until one ch remains, dc into the last ch. (26 sts)
Row 2: ch 2 and turn. Dc into ea st across. (26 sts)
Row 3: ch 2 and turn. Dc into the first st *sk 1 st, dc into the next st, go back and dc into the skipped st* until one st remains, dc in last st. (26 sts)
Rows 4-13: repeat rows 2 and 3 (26 sts)
If you would like to make your dishcloth shorter/longer, simply repeat rows 2 and 3 less/more times.
Do not f/o, proceed to finishing
Continuing from your last Row 3 repeat.
sc around the entire dishcloth by placing 2 sc sts into each row on each side, 3 sc sts in each of the corners, and 1 sc st in each stitch (or chain) on the top/bottom of the dishcloth. Once you come back to the ch 1, place 3 sc sts into that corner, then slip stitch to the first sc st.
f/o and enjoy your new dishcloth!
